The 2024 lineup for the ‘Country Music Cruise’ has been announced, including Tracy Lawrence, Shenandoah, Clint Black, Billy Dean, Darryl Worley, Neal McCoy, Joe Nichols — with more artists expected to be announced in the near future.
Said Lawrence: “I had such a great time several years ago when I got to go, and made some really amazing friends that I stayed in touch with. I ended up spending a lot of time at the blackjack table that week and just met some really interesting people. I really made it a point to work the ship, and hang out at different spots and meet a lot of the different folks. My family, we’ve enjoyed taking cruises for many years. We’ve been to a lot of different destinations. We’ve been all over the Caribbean, and we’ve been to Hawaii, on a lot of different boats. But this one is really special. I really just embrace the whole thing. And having that aspect for the fans, and being able to have a good time with all the great types of music, it’s really awesome.”
Shenandoah’s lead singer Marty Raybon added: “Every time you go out of your cabin, there’s somebody there that’s gonna want to get to know you. But the great thing about it is, you’re gonna get a chance and an opportunity to get to know them too. For 36 years, that’s what our career’s been, is making people that just came to a show who was an acquaintance turn into some really good friendships. And through the years, we’ve made a bunch of them. And, it gives our band guys, our crew, and their family, it gives them a wonderful opportunity to vacation.”
Other artists performing on the cruise include Wade Hayes, Linda Davis, Jimmy Fortune, Moe Bandy and more, with additional artists expected to be announced in the near future.
