Jamboree In The Hills celebrated its 41st year with a bevy of superstars and up-and-comers last Thursday through Sunday (7/13-16). Huge crowds turned out at the Morristown Ohio event to hear headliners Thomas Rhett (Thursday), Jason Aldean (Friday), Lady Antebellum (Saturday), and Sawyer Brown (Sunday), alongside red-hot performers like Kelsea Ballerini, Chris Young, RaeLynn, Kane Brown, and Brett Young.

There were plenty of memorable moments at Jamboree, which is one of the longest-running Country festivals in the world, including Chris Young (alongside Shane Owens) stopping by the campground to surprise an estimated 1,000 guests during the festival’s first year of their “Jambo After Dark” after-party, and legend Tanya Tucker returning to the JITH stage after making her first appearance in 1983.

From decked out campers to personal pools, JITH’s campsite of trailers even housed enclosed “Jambo Glam” lodging for the first time this year, offering powered “glamping tents” equipped with a hospitality staff and exclusive access to air-conditioned restrooms, showers, a well-stocked lounge area with snacks and morning coffee, and a community gas grill.

“The best part of Jamboree In The Hills is the fans,”said Kelly Tucker-Jones, General Manager/Jamboree In The Hills. “Their deep-rooted love of this historic festival shines through in every aspect of its traditions. This festival is more than country music, Jamboree In The Hills is family and friends from the staff to the fans – we all feel like we are one unit that gets to spend the best weekend of the year together year after year!”
