Mark your calendars.

Beer, barbecue and performances by some well-known names in country music are in store for this year’s Yuengling Bands and BBQ event by the Miami Valley Restaurant Association in partnership with K99.1 FM radio.

Some acts are still being announced, but so far the May 31 event at the Montgomery County Fairgrounds will feature performances by:

  • Cassadee Pope: The first female winner of the voice, this young country artist won the third season of “The Voice.” Her debut solo country album, “Frame by Frame,” was released in 2013. The album debuted at No. 9 on the Billboard 200 and No. 1 on the Top Country Albums charts, and was preceded by Top 10 country single, “Wasting All These Tears.”
  • Craig Wayne Boyd: This Texan country singer won the seventh season of “The Voice” in 2014. He’s opened for Rascal Flatts.
  • Alexis Gomez: Just announced, Gomez will be joining the lineup at this event (performance time still TBD). Gomez, a Dayton native and Wright State graduate, made the Top 16 on this season of “American Idol.”
  • Old Dominion: This country-rock band is a rising star on the country scene after these songwriters and musicians have collaborated with big names including The Band Perry, Keith Urban and Luke Bryan. The band has opened for Chesney.
