The Palmetto Music Festival is touting itself as a “country hick hop” festival, featuring genre-crossing country, Southern rock and rap acts, such as The Lacs (Georgia), known for songs about beer drinking and mud-bogging (endearingly referred to as “Southern-influenced poems,” according to the band’s website), and alternative country and hip-hop artist Demun Jones (Georgia), both on Colt Ford’s Average Joes record label.

Also performing will be country rap singer-songwriter, Lenny Cooper (North Carolina), also known as the Crown Prince of the Mud Diggers ... he, too, has a love of mud-bogging. Redneck Souljers (Tennessee) will also take the stage, along with local country/rockabilly/Americana artist Brady Smith as the opening act.
