    1 of 2 2 of 2

      The Pacific Northwest will tap the spirit of the mythical American west on July 7 when the inaugural Country Club Country Music & Whiskey Festival takes place at the PNE Fairgrounds.

      As its name suggests, the event will revolve around country music and whiskey, with added attractions including a mechanical bull, strategically-placed hay bales, games, and Texas-style barbecue. Attendees are invited to dress in a fashion reminiscent of Jessica Simpson in The Dukes of Hazzard, John Schneider in the idiot-box version of The Dukes of Hazzard, and everyone who ever attended the Merritt Mountain Music Festival.

      Headlining the Country Club Country Music & Whiskey Festival will be the genre-mashing Tanner Adell, whose bucket-list moments have included guesting on Beyoncé’s Cowboy Carter. Check out Adell’s decidedly urban take on Nashville on last year’s Buckle Bunny. Co-headlining is Victoria’s Jojo Mason, who blends burning soul and country-pop on songs like “Let Me Down Easy” from the 604 Records EP Sky Full of Stars

      Mark Ledlin and Pistol Whip the Devil provide support. Tickets go on sale Tuesday (April 9) at 10am. 

      On the liquor front, the day will offer a curated selection of American bourbons and whiskies—available in cocktails, neat, and on ice—along with offerings from the Great White North. For those glad they never had to step off a horse and into an Old West saloon, there will non-whiskey spirits and cocktails, as well as craft beer and cider. 

      As many as 5,000 country—and whiskey—fans are expected for the first edition of the event, which is produced by Feaster. Don’t forget that real cowboys and cowgirls demand the mechanical bull be set to 11 before they saddle up.
