Lee Brice to Headline the 2020 Vidalia Onion Festival!

Headlining the 2020 Vidalia Onion Festival concert is American country artist, Lee Brice.  When Lee isn’t selling out arenas, writing and recording songs, or building new brands like American Born whiskey, you’ll find the family man with his wife Sara, two young boys, and baby daughter.

Lee’s current radio hit with Carly Pearce, “I Hope You’re Happy Now”, is one of the top songs played on radio today. Brice plans to release even more new music in early 2020. 

Danielle Bradbery

Also playing Saturday evening is the beautiful and talented, Danielle Bradbery.  Nominated in 2019 as Female Artist of the Year, Danielle has stepped into her own lane with sophomore album I Don’t Believe We’ve Met.
