Tree Town Music Festival is pleased to announce the nationís largest wartime veterans organization, The American Legion, will once again serve as the official charity of the annual country music event, which is fast becoming the largest of its kind.

In 2014, thousands of fans descended on Forest City, Iowa, for the first-year Memorial Day weekend event to catch performances by some of country musicís biggest stars, including Brad Paisley, Toby Keith, Brantley Gilbert, Chris Young, Scotty McCreery and more.

For 2015, Tree Town Music Festival is bringing the hottest rising stars and established hit-makers in music to Forest City, Iowa, Memorial Day Weekend (May 21-24). The newly-expanded four-day event will feature performances by Blake Shelton, Dierks Bentley, Rascal Flatts, Lee Brice, Eli Young Band, Thomas Rhett, Chase Rice, Maddie & Tae, Danielle Bradbery, Old Dominion, Casey Muessigmann, The Last Ride, Joe Denim, Hairball, Williams & Ree and more. This yearís festival will also feature The American Legion stage, hosting .38 Special, Chris Hawkey, Iowa native Ben Lau and others. In addition to non-stop music from multiple stages, the grounds of the event will once again be filled with beer tents, food vendors, rock climbing, zip lines and much more.
