“This is easily the most diverse lineup we have ever had at Rock the South. When you say the names Luke Combs, Miranda Lambert, Lynyrd Skynyrd and Nelly; you have the perfect recipe for the biggest party in the South,” said Shane Quick-Partner Pepsi Rock the South. “We couldn’t think of a better way to re-launch the live concert industry in the south.”

Headlining the tenth year will be Luke Combs, who The New York Times calls, “the most promising and influential new country star of the last five years." Combs is a multi-platinum, ACM, CMA, CMT and Billboard Music Award-winning artist. His new deluxe album, What You See Ain't Always What You Get debuted at #1 on the all-genre Billboard 200 chart as well as Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart. With the release, Combs also reached #1 on Rolling Stone’s Top 200 Albums chart, Top 100 Songs chart and Artists 500 chart—the first country artist ever to lead all three charts in the same week and first to top the Artists 500. Adding to a series of groundbreaking and historic years, Combs recently won two awards at the 55th ACM Awards, two awards at the 54th CMA Awards and three awards at the 2020 Billboard Music Awards.

The most decorated artist in the history of the Academy of Country Music, Miranda Lambert will also be one of headliners for Rock the South 2021. Lambert is the recipient of more than 70 prestigious awards and special honors: 35 ACM Awards (including 9 ACM Female Vocalist of the Year Awards), 13 CMA Awards (Country Music Association), 2 GRAMMY Awards, the Harmony Award (Nashville Symphony), Artist in Residence (Country Music Hall of Fame), the ACM Gene Weed Milestone Award, ACM Song of the Decade Award, and was named 2019 RIAA’s Artist of the Year.

With a catalog of over 60 albums, sales beyond 30 million worldwide and their beloved classic American rock anthem “Sweet Home Alabama'' Lynyrd Skynyrd will be a huge hit for party goers at Rock the South 2021. Having over two million downloaded ringtones, Rock & Roll Hall of Famers- Lynyrd Skynyrd remain a cultural icon that appeals to all generations.

One of the artists that will also attract a wide-variety of music lovers is Diamond Selling, Multi-platinum, Grammy award-winning rap superstar, entrepreneur, philanthropist, and actor, Nelly. He has continually raised the bar for the entertainment industry since stepping on the scene in 2000 with his distinctive vocals and larger than life personality. Nelly’s collaboration with Florida Georgia Line received Diamond status and he is only one of seven rappers to reach this honor.

Ashley McBryde closed out 2019 with ACM New Female Artist, CMT Breakout Artist of the Year, a New Artist of the Year win at the 53rdAnnual CMA Awards and two nominations for the 2020 GRAMMYs for Best Country Song and Best Country Solo Performance for “Girl Goin’ Nowhere.” McBryde also received a 2021 GRAMMY nomination for Best Country Album, along with a 2020 CMA nomination for Album of the Year.

Ingrid Andress who was nominated for three ACM Awards including New Female Artist of the Year will also be singing to fans in August.
