Capital Hoedown Ropes in Carrie Underwood, Lady A + More
A great place to see several of country music's biggest names in one place is north of the border this summer. Ottawa's Capital Hoedown has released the line-up for its three-day festival, and the schedule promises plenty of star power.
Carrie Underwood, Jason Aldean, Lady Antebellum, Kenny Chesney, Justin Moore, Miranda Lambert, Billy Currington and Sara Evans are just a few of the singers who will head to the Canadian capitol August 11 - 13. The annual event, now in its second year, will be held at LeBreton Flats Park, with an expected daily attendance of 45,000 people.
The return to Ottawa will be especially meaningful for Carrie, who briefly lived in the city following her nuptials with pro hockey player Mike Fisher, before he was traded by the Ottawa Senators to the Nashville Predators. "We will both truly miss Ottawa," Carrie says of the move. "Mike has been such a big part of the community, and I will never forget how they welcomed me with open arms."
