11th Annual Country in the Park Takes Over Exploration Park on May 13

May 9th, 2017

Country in the Park returns to the Mountain’s Edge Master Planned Community with performances by Granger Smith, special guests Ryan Follese and Elvis Monroe, and opportunities to support veterans starting at 2 p.m. on Saturday, May 13.

Headlining the free Country in the Park event is Granger Smith, who has built a groundbreaking career by connecting with fans in new and innovative ways. To promote his music, Smith, a Texas A&M graduate, filmed a humorous monologue video featuring a parody of a “country boy,” his alter ego “Earl Dibbles, Jr.” The video went viral, and Earl’s popularity increased with more songs of his own – even a feature in “City Boy Stuck” on the 4×4 EP. Although Smith doesn’t rely on Earl’s appeal, he shows up on occasion to please audiences.

Additionally Smith has a YouTube docu-series called “Yee Yee TV” where fans follow him touring with his band and crew. Smith now has a social media following of more than three million, YouTube views nearing 30 million and nine albums. Hit songs include “Backroad Song” and the latest “If the Boot Fits.”

Smith, who believes in giving back to the community that has supported his career, has focused on numerous efforts to support the military including the annual 100-mile Boot Walk for the Boot Campaign. The national nonprofit is dedicated to showing tangible appreciation for active military, raising awareness of the challenges they face upon return and supporting their transition home.

Opening for Smith is Ryan Follese, the former front man of the American Music Award-winning band Hot Chelle Rae. Follese made his country music debut in 2016 with “Put a Label On It,” featured on Ryan Follese, which sold over 40,000 downloads to date and amassed more than 1.8 million streams.

Elvis Monroe, comprised of an all-star line-up featuring members from bands such as Lifehouse, Savage Garden, Mariah Carey, Ben Folds Five and American Idol, kicks off Country in the Park. Among the songs they’ll sing is “Colors We Fly.” Proceeds from the song through iTunes (https://itun.es/us/ZrYegb) will benefit service men and women through nonprofits such as Xtreme Couture G.I. Foundation, formed to raise money and awareness for those wounded in action and their families.

Continuing with the giving back spirit, event exhibitor Alaskan Heating & Air Conditioning will offer carnival activities, including high striker, face painting and a balloon artist. A $5 minimum donation is requested to help Veterans Village Las Vegas raise funds to purchase 200 air conditioning units. The nonprofit Veterans Village provides transitional and permanent housing for veterans.

Attendees also can take advantage of the 80-acre Exploration Park, the event site, with its Old Western village, Native American play structures, archaeological dig area, splash pad, picnic areas, and the 2,846-foot-tall Exploration Peak with hiking and cycling trails and panoramic views of the city.

Elvis Monroe performs from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m., followed by Follese from 5 p.m. to 5:45 p.m., and culminating with Smith from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.

Picnic baskets, chairs, blankets and well-behaved leashed pets are welcome.  Alcohol, coolers, glass and pop-up tents are not allowed in the park.

Country in the Park is presented by Mountain’s Edge and Las Vegas’ new country leader 95.5 The Bull.

 

Exploration Park, located at 9700 S. Buffalo Drive, is just south of Blue Diamond Road and the master plan’s main entrance.
