“Bring your lawn chairs, your family and friends to enjoy a fun day,” states Rick Sellers, President of Keystone Gas Corporation, co-sponsor and organizer of the event.

Shawna Russell, a native of Okemah, Oklahoma, has appeared at the event for the past three years, starting out as the opening act for BJ Thomas in 2008. Russell’s latest single, “Get Right Or Get Left,” from her recently released self-titled sophomore album, is building steam at radio and the video for the song is currently playing at The Country Network, Yallwire.com, GACTV.com and regional outlets across the country. www.shawnarussell.com

Ricochet (whose founding members singer Heath Wright, and bassist Greg Cook hail from Vian, Oklahoma) first rose to widespread fame with the #1 hit “Daddy’s Money” in 1996. Other chart songs include “What Do I Know,” “Love Is Stronger Than Pride,” and their signature Independence Day favorite, “The Star Spangled Banner,” which landed the group in the record books when it was released and Ricochet became the first Country artist to place the song on the Billboard Country Singles chart. www.ricochetonline.com
