Sara Evans is set to host Rock the South, a two-day festival that takes place in Cullman, Ala.

The event, which takes place June 20-21 at Heritage Park in downtown Cullman, will feature a lineup that includes Little Big Town, Easton Corbin, Billy Currington, Charlie Daniels Band, Lynyrd Skynyrd, ‘Duck Dynasty‘ star Phil Robertson, and more.

Organizer Shane Quick says he recognizes that having Robertson in the lineup is controversial after the comments he made in an interview regarding homosexuality, but Quick thinks the A&E star will be a good addition to the event.

“Phil Robertson has easily been one of the most requested people in the history of Rock the South,” Quick tells the Cullman Times. “We believe he represents a lot of the things southerners are passionate about. God, family, country and hunting are things that will get an ‘Amen’ from just about any southerner.”

Evans is releasing her new album ‘Slow Me Down,’ which was voted Album of the Month for March 2014 by The Boot readers, on Tuesday, March 11. Evans’ seventh studio album features a new approach from the singer, and the title track is climbing the charts as the first single released from the project.

“My goal every time I go in the studio to make a new record is to challenge myself a little bit more, to try to have the newest and freshest sound, but still the Sara Evans sound,” she says. “By that I mean my music has always had the same vocal sound … I love a ton of guitar and there’s just this … sound.”

‘Slow Me Down’ can be purchased on Amazon and iTunes. Ticket information for Rock the South is available on the event’s website.
