Country Music Festival Coming to St. John



NASHVILLE, Tenn — Love City Country Music Festival, the first-ever country music festival on St. John in the U.S. Virgin Islands, announced today  the lineup for a special presentation of a “Hit Makers & Rum Chasers” songwriters showcase happening Friday, May 15 at 7 p.m. at Winston Wells ball field. Presented by Caneel Bay Resort, the festival — named for St. John’s local nickname, “Love City” — runs May 14-16.

Hit songwriters Kent Blazy, Marti Frederiksen, Kendell Marvel, Danny Myrick and special guest songwriters will entertain music fans during a Nashville-style writers round performing and telling the stories behind their biggest hits.

“‘Hit Maker & Rum Chasers’ has been bringing in some of country music’s hottest songwriters to St. Thomas for the past year and half and we are thrilled to have such a powerhouse lineup of writers on the bill for the inaugural Love City Music Festival,” said event promoter Jamie Gladman. “If country music fans have never seen a songwriters showcase, they are in for a real treat,” Gladman continued.

Kent Blazy and Garth Brooks penned together “If Tomorrow Never Comes,” the first No. 1 song for them both. Brooks recorded eight more of their songs on his albums with four capturing the No. 1 spot including “Somewhere Other Than the Night,” “Ain’t Goin’ Down (‘Til the Sun Comes Up),” “It’s Midnight Cinderella,” and “She’s Gonna Make It”. Brooks’ newest CD, “The Lost Sessions,” includes another Blazy and Brooks song, “For a Minute There,” written for their fathers. His songs were also recorded by Kenny Chesney, Terri Clark, Diamond Rio, Clay Walker, Patty Loveless and more. Blazy’s latest No. 1 hit “Gettin’ You Home (The Black Dress Song)” was recorded by Chris Young.

If you follow our blog, you probably know that I enjoy hiking on the island and my favorite trail from Annaberg area, Leinster Bay, Johnny Horn to Brown Bay and back. It has many options as you don’t need to go all the way to end at Brown Bay and you can turn around at anytime and make the hike as long or short as you would like. There are beautiful ruins throughout the hike. Drink lots of water, wear proper shoes, bring your trail bandit map & camera and I’ll see you on the trail! Questions regarding our hiking trails?
