For regional artists the road to the 2019 Suwannee River Jam (SRJ), one of the largest country music and camping festivals in the Southeast, was long and tough. On March 8 at the finals, five solo singers, one duo and three bands were overjoyed at The Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park (SOSMP) in Live Oak, Fla. when they were named winners to perform at this year’s 28th Annual SRJ!

Named as performers for the 2019 SRJ are solo singers Nolan Hamm (17 of Bushnell), Sarah Trimm (Live Oak/Bronson), Macey Mac (15 of Ocala), Brandon Adams (Saint Augustine) and Godiva (16 of Jacksonville). The chosen duo is Stephen Quinn (singer/songwriter/Jacksonville) and Gabe Bullard (guitarist/Middleburg). Bands chosen are Austin Park Band (Jacksonville), Southern Burn (Gainesville) and Fat Tractor Band (Tampa). Southbound 75 Band (Odessa) was named a Wildcard in the event of a band opening.

All of those chosen will perform at the 2019 SRJ on the 1st Street Music Stage in the Amphitheater and will have official credentials and their names printed on the back of SRJ T-shirts available for sale at the Merchandise Tent. The front of that shirt has the names of all the national artists booked for this year! These artists are Hank Williams Jr., Trace Adkins, Chase Rice, Clint Black, Gretchen Wilson, Craig Campbell, Frankie Ballard, A Thousand Horses, Uncle Kracker and Brian Callihan.
