Gulf Coast Jam Fest starts Thursday

by September 26, 2013 • 3 comments

This weekend’s Pepsi Gulf Coast Jam has got a lineup that can’t be beat.

From country legends like Charlie Daniels, Trace Adkins and Toby Keith, to hot young performers like Darryl Worley, Eli Young Band, Colt Ford and Brantley Gilbert – this event will have something for everyone.

Starting Thursday and going through Saturday, stages will open all over Panama City Beach: Boardwalk Beach Resort on Thomas Drive, Frank Brown Park on Back Beach Road, Edgewater Beach Resort on Front Beach Road, Club La Vela on Thomas Drive and the Harley-Davidson Stage in Seahaven.

Gates at most of the stages will open at 9 a.m., with performances going until 3 p.m. when the action on the main stage at Frank Brown Park will pick up. After hours performances will go into the early morning hours at Club La Vela.

Thursday night, Trace Adkins takes the main stage at Frank Brown Park from 9:15 to 10:45. Adkins debuted in 1995 with the album “Dreamin’ Out Loud” and has since released seven more original albums and two greatest hits compilations. He has had more than 20 Billboard country music chart hits including No. 1s: “(This Ain’t) No Thinkin’ Thing,” “Ladies Love Country Boys,” and “You’re Gonna Miss This.”

He’s also been on “Hollywood Squares” and “The Celebrity Apprentice,” as well as authored an autobiography called “A Personal Stand: Observations and Opinions from a Free-Thinking Roughneck” and appeared in the movie “The Lincoln Lawyer.”

Friday night’s main event gets devilish when The Charlie Daniels Band takes the stage at Frank Brown Park from 7:30 to 8:45 p.m. Daniels is best known for his No. 1 Country hit “The Devil Went Down to Georgia,” but has been performing since the 1950s. He was inducted into the Grand Ole Opry in 2008 and the Musicians Hall of Fame Museum in 2009.

He’s followed by Brantley Gilbert from 9:15 to 10:45 p.m. Gilbert’s “Country Must Be Country Wide” was No. 1 on the Hot Country Songs charts in 2011 and in 2012, “You Don’t Know Her Like I Do” also reached No. 1.

Saturday finishes off the event with Darryl Worley taking the main stage from 6 to 7 p.m. Worley has had 18 singles on Billboard Hot Country charts, including No. 1s “I Miss My Friend,” “Awful, Beautiful Life” and “Have You Forgotten?” which was No. 1 for seven weeks.

From 7:30 to 8:45 p.m. Eli Young Band takes the main stage. The members of Eli Young Band, Mike Eli, James Young, Jon Jones and Chris Thompson, met as students at the University of North Texas. Their No. 1 hits include, “Crazy Girl” and “Even If It Breaks Your Heart.”

Then Toby Keith finishes it off from 9:15 to 10:45 p.m. A platinum-selling musician and country music writer, Keith hit the scene with the release of his 1993 album “Toby Keith.” He has an extraordinary list of hit singles including: “Should’ve Been a Cowboy,” the most played country song of the 1990s; and “How Do You Like Me Now,” the No. 1 country song of 2000.

Would have been nice to have this when the event happened last weekend. It was difficult to find the schedule of performances since I don’t have a smart phone.

Goob I was thinking the same thing. This web site used to be my go to web site for PCB news but now I can get more info off the tripadvisor forums than here. There’s more posts about real estate than actual happenings and events in PCB. Needs to be updated more often.
