The Calvert Marine Museum is pleased to announce its partnership with the Southern Maryland Blue Crabs Professional Baseball Club. This partnership will offer cross marketing opportunities for both sites and a chance to merge the customer bases. The first joint venture is a Country Music Festival featuring the Willie Nelson Country Throwdown Tour on Saturday, June 18 at Regency Furniture Stadium in Waldorf, Maryland.
Country music fans will enjoy eight hours of live music beginning at 3:00 p.m. featuring 13 artists on three stages, including Willie Nelson, Jamey Johnson, Randy Houser, Lee Brice, Brantley Gilbert, Craig Campbell, and Lukas Nelson & the Promise of the Real. All tickets are general admission and are $40 each; additional service fees apply, and will go on sale Friday, February 25 at 10:00 a.m. Tickets may be purchased at http://calvertmarinemuseum.ticketforce.com or www.soMDBluecrabs.com.
The Bluebird Café Stage will feature six emerging singer-songwriters where attendees may enjoy the unique and intimate “in the round”-style sets made famous at Nashville’s Bluebird Café. Adam Hood, Caitlyn Smith, Austin Lucas, Brent Cobb, Dani Flowers, and Erin Enderlin have signed on the Bluebird Café Stage and will also perform during the main stage set changes.

A “living legend” in his day, American icon, Willie Nelson is a singer-songwriter, author, poet, actor, and activist. With more than 200 albums over six decades, Willie is the creative genius behind “Crazy,” “Hello Walls,” “Red Headed Stranger,” and “Stardust.” A career recognized with eight Grammy wins, a President’s Merit Award, a Grammy Legend Award, and the prestigious Lifetime Achievement Award, Willie Nelson is still going strong. Last April, “Willie Nelson’s Country Music”, produced by Grammy and Oscar winning T Bone Burnett, was released on Rounder Records and recently received a Grammy Nomination for Best Americana Album. “Country Music,” recorded in Nashville with an A-list band, touts this American musical icon recording fresh versions of timeless classics.
