The Hamler Country Fest will bring Bucky Covington and Jerrod Niemann to their stage for the two-day festival in Hamler, Ohio.  The event takes place on May 18 -19 at the Hamler Summerfest Grounds.

Covington headlines the festival on Friday night. He first gained national attention when he placed eighth on 5th season of American Idol. His self-titled Lyrics Street Records debut was released in 2007 and spent it’s first week at the top spot on the Billboard Top Country Albums Chart. The album produced three hit singles on the Hot Country Songs charts: “A Different World” at number six, “It’s Good to Be Us” at number eleven, and “I’ll Walk” at number ten. He released his latest album, Happy Man in 2015.

Niemann closes out the Hamler Country Fest on Saturday night. He has released seven studio albums since 1999. His 2010 release Judge Jerrod & the Hung Jury produced a number one hit with “Lover,Lover” and a top five with “What Do You Want.” He returned to the top of the charts with his single, “Drink to That All Night” from his High Noon album in 2013. In all, Niemann has produced ten singles that have made their way onto the Billboard Hot Country Songs Chart. His latest album, This Ride was released by Curb Records last year.
