Thunder on the Mountain fest is off

Sunday, June 14, 2015 – The Thunder on the Mountain festival in Arkansas was slated to be the first appearance at a regular concert setting for Carrie Underwood since she gave birth.

Fans will have to wait a bit longer because the festival announced this weekend it was being cancelled. "Due to circumstances beyond our control, we are unable to hold Thunder on the Mountain. A separate statement will be sent to ticket holders," the festival said on Twitter.

The festival was slated for June 26 - 28 near Ozark, Ark. Zac Brown Band, Big & Rich, Sara Evans and Whiskey Myers were among the other acts slated to play.

Concert Review: DBT rocks on – Drive-By Truckers still sometimes get miscategorized as alt.-country, but who's kidding whom? With three electric guitarists upfront exchanging hard rock licks all night, this is a blistering Southern rock band. Hitting the stage just before 10, the band played a satisfying 2-hour-plus set. At 11:40, Patterson Hood announced the band would be... »»»
