Runaway Country in Search of Next “Runaway Rock Star”

This March the 4th annual Runaway Country Music Festivals will take over Florida’s Space Coast with 3 days and 4 nights of some of the big stars in country music.


In addition to their headliners, the festival will have fellow music lovers to select fans to kickoff the celebration by taking to the Main Stage in Melbourne, Florida’s Wickham Park.

Called “Runaway RockStar” the festival is encouraging musicians to upload their best performance on You Tube by the entry deadline on January 19th. A link to the You Tube video will be published on Runaway Country’s Facebook page. Fans click on the link to view the videos, they then vote for their favorite each week. 

The artist or band with the most votes at the end of the online competition wins the coveted Main Stage performance slot. Runaway Country Executive Producer, Gary McCann explained, “Each year we invite talented artists, looking for their big break, to play the Main Stage. This year, the fans select their favorite to play. This is an exciting competition for all of us to watch and of course, really exciting for the artists.” McCann concluded, “It’s pretty cool that Runaway Country fans have the opportunity to play an integral part in launching the career of a new artist. It’s a win win for everyone.” Information for artists wanting to compete for the Main Stage and for fans wanting to vote can be found at
