Mark Wells was announced today as part of the lineup for the CMC Rocks the Hunter, the largest country music festival that Australia has seen. The festival will take place at Hope Estate in Pokolbin over the weekend of the 6th and 7th of March 2011.
Wells is set to perform alongside international country superstars such as Alan Jackson and Miranda Lambert as well as Australian country acts including Troy Cassar-Daley and The McClymonts.
With over 17,000 fans expected and the event being aired to over 60 million people across America, Wells is ecstatic that he has been offered a place on such a legendary line-up.
‘‘I’m really excited to just be playing one of the biggest ever international country music line-ups in Australia,’’ Wells said yesterday.
‘‘It’s a really huge festival in terms of the number of people that come to this. To play to 17,000 people or more is going to be amazing exposure. I’m really excited to be doing this in the Hunter, it is going to be such an amazing opportunity for me”.
With a new album set to be released January 2011, Wells added that CMC Rocks the Hunter will help to open up his music not only to fans at the festival, but also to those working in the international country music scene.
