Scotty McCreery Scheduled to Perform at 2015 Strawberry Festival


“We have a wider variety of entertainment this year than we have ever had before,” Florida Strawberry Festival General Manager Paul Davis said.

They will be joined by such high-profile performers as Loretta Lynn, Reba McEntire, Academy Award winner Kevin Costner & Modern West, Sara Evans, Hunter Hayes and “American Idol” winner Scotty McCreery.

In addition to the more familiar older country acts, such as Alabama, Mel Tillis, the Oak Ridge Boys and Ricky Skaggs, the festival steps out of its usual genre this year. Legend — a nine-time Grammy Award winner and collaborator with some of hip-hop’s biggest stars — R&B band Boyz II Men, the big-band sounds of the Tommy Dorsey Orchestra, and ‘60s crooner Bobby Vinton.

Advance tickets go on sale Dec. 4 at 8 a.m. and can be purchased at the Florida Strawberry Festival website, at the festival box office at 2209 W. Oak Avenue in Plant City, or by phone at (813) 754-1996. Free seating for each concert is also available in the Morrow Steel Free Grandstand located at the back of the Wish Farms Soundstage and is available on a first come, first seated basis.
