With the support of countrymusic.pl forum, our long time media partner, we begin the presentation of the Artists of this year's "Pure Country" Festival.
In the newly created section ARTISTS, you can get to know our performers of this year's festival, and also take a look into our artistic chronicle and recall memories from concerts of previous editions of the festival.
Breaking news! One of the biggest hits of our headliner MICHAEL PETERSON, the song "Drink, Swear, Steal & Lie", which became country music standard, reached # 3 on Country Bilboard and had over 3 millions airplays in 1997, still enjoys constant popularity and for several weeks remains at # 1 on the European HOT DISC CHART.
Congratulations to the Artist and we can't wait to hear "Drink, Swear, Steal & Lie" live in Wolsztyn! Let's watch and listen to this hit, performed live on stage of "Raiding The Country Vault" in Branson, MO.
