Busch Gardens® Tampa Bay’s second annual Food & Wine Festival kicks off this weekend with country music star Gary Allan and one of America’s greatest rock-and-roll bands Huey Lewis & The News.
Gary Allan – Saturday, March 5 at 6 p.m.
With the allure of a modern day outlaw, Gary Allan has won over fans, peers and critics with his signature blend of smoldering vocals, rebellious lyrics and raucous live performances. While becoming a force on the country music scene, Allan has remained true to his artistic voice each step of the way. His album, SET YOU FREE, topped the Billboard 200 (Pop Chart), a career first for Allan. The album also made its debut at the top of the Billboard Country Album chart (for the fourth time in a row), and produced his fifth #1 country radio chart topper with “Every Storm Runs Out Of Rain.” To date, he has sold more than 7 million albums, been certified platinum on three back-to-back albums, and gold twice.
Huey Lewis & The News – Sunday, March 6 at 6 p.m.
Huey Lewis & The News are truly one of America’s greatest rock and roll bands, selling over 20 million albums and wowing audiences with their unique ability to blend R&B, soul and bluesy musical influences.
