Eighteen year-old starlet Taylor Swift, who launched her country music career just two years ago, will perform on the BamaJam main stage Thursday night.

The album includes the hit single "All Summer Long" and is Kid Rock's fifth consecutive platinum-selling studio effort to date. He elevated his superstar status with his fourth full-length album, the seven-time-platinum DEVIL WITHOUT A CAUSE, which featured the hits “Bawitdaba,” “Cowboy,” “Only God Knows Why” and the 2003 smash duet with Sheryl Crow, entitled “Picture,” marked his crossover into the country music scene.
Multi-Platinum selling duo Brooks & Dunn, one of the most successful two-sums in country music history with 20 No. 1 hits (“My Maria,” “Play Something Country,” “Boot Scootin’ Boogie,” “Believe” and “Ain’t Nothing ‘bout You”) and 14 Country Music Association Vocal Duo of The Year awards, will perform on Saturday evening, June 6.

Over the course of his career, with 16 Gold, Platinum, and Multi-Platinum albums (leading up to his latest CD entitled GOOD TIME which debuted at No. 1 in March 2008), Alan Jackson has become one of country music’s most respected and honored artists. Having sold over 50 million albums, Jackson has more than 100 major industry awards to his credit. He is a three-time Country Music Association Entertainer of the Year and the most-nominated artist in CMA history. Jackson penned 23 of his 33 No. 1 singles, including “Don’t Rock The Jukebox,” “Chasin’ That Neon Rainbow,” “Chattahoochee,” “I’ll Go On Loving You,” “It’s Five O’Clock Somewhere” and his GRAMMY-winning Best Country Song, “Where Were You (When the World Stopped Turning).”
The Black Crowes, one of the world’s greatest rock ‘n’ roll artists, will join the list of award-winning entertainers to appear at BamaJam, performing on Friday, June 5, 2009. The success of their singles "Hard to Handle," "She Talks to Angels," "Jealous Again," "Twice as Hard," "Remedy," and "Goodbye Daughters of the Revolution” led the group to multi-platinum status and international acclaim racking up worldwide album sales of more than 19 million.
The Texas brotherly-trio Los Lonely Boys (Epic Records) join the roster of BamaJam performers on Thursday, June 4.

Grammy-nominated Robert Randolph is the leader of the fierce-foursome, Robert Randolph & The Family Band (Warner Brothers). The multicultural American funk and soul band opened for acts such as The Black Crowes and Dave Matthews Band before headlining their own tour in late 2006. Steered by peers (rock ‘n roll icons Carlos Santana, Steven Tyler and Eric Clapton), Randolph recorded the CD COLORBLIND which not only secured the group’s foothold in the music industry, but enabled them to find a place in film and on television. They wrote the NBA theme song “Hoops” for ABC, and their song "Ain't Nothing Wrong With That" was featured in the No. 1 box-office movie “Stomp The Yard” as well as in numerous commercials for NBC.
