FRANKLIN, Tenn., April 8, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Americana Music Association announced today plans to produce the second annual Cross-County Lines Festival, presented by Nissan. It will be a one day celebration of roots inspired music, taking place on May 31, 2014 at The Park at Harlinsdale Farm in Franklin, TN. Americana stalwarts Patty Griffin and John Hiatt will co-headline the two stage, seven-hour musical dayfest that will also feature Ashley Monroe, Brandy Clark, Parker Millsap, Joe Pug and Luther Dickinson.
This year's event is the follow-up to the 2013 inaugural fundraising event hosted by Jerry Douglas with Alison Krauss, Amos Lee and Shawn Colvin, to name a few. Americana's Cross-County Lines is intended to raise awareness and funds to support the not-for-profit association's mission: To advocate for the authentic voice of American roots music around the world.
"This music that has evolved from American roots traditions is something that needs to be shared, something that we need to be proud of," says Americana Music Association executive director, Jed Hilly. "Cross-County Lines is about breaking borders, breaking boundaries and coming together as a larger community and there's no better place than the beautiful landscape of The Park at Harlinsdale Farm."
AEG-TMG will co-produce the event, which starts at 4:30 PM. Doors will open at 3:30 PM. Tickets are $35 per person and will go on sale via Ticketmaster and The Franklin Theatre box office on Friday, April 11 at 10 AM CST. There will also be a Premier Patron VIP option available.

The site is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
