Inaugural Rusty Reel Lake Jam Announces Full 2023 Lineup

It is exciting when new things come to town, and being a music fest makes it even better. 'Rusty Reel Lake Jam,' in Effingham, IL will be their first ever country music festival with a kick of rock & roll and country music. The huge lineup of artists, featuring chart-topping headliners Bret Michaels, Big & Rich and Blackberry Smoke are part of the festivities.

18 different performers on one stage kicking off in the afternoon and on, into the night. Thursday’s headliner is Blackberry Smoke followed by Big & Rich as Friday’s headliner while Poison’s front-man Bret Michaels closes out Saturday night as he brings his ‘Parti-Gras’ to the jam. Opening for Bret is Tik-Tok country artist sensation Cooper Alan, who may or may not have something up his sleeve for the fans that night after a recent mashup video covering Poison hits.
