The balloons have and always will be the shining stars at Balloon Fiesta. However, over the years we’ve welcomed some amazing musical artists who have entertained our guests when the balloons are off the field. We've had the honor of hosting musical guests such as 3 Dog Night, Old Dominion, Michael Ray, the Marshall Tucker Band, Little Texas, Darius Rucker, Sawyer Brown, Josh Turner, the Band Perry, Chris Young, and Billy Currington. This year's line-up continues our commitment to the hottest acts preceding a beautiful evening of balloons.

Justin Moore

Chart-topping powerhouse Justin Moore proves that, throughall the fame and success, he’s still justthe same country boy he’s always beenon his stellar new album, ‘Late Nights and Longnecks’ available everywhere April 26. Tipping its cap to Alan Jackson and George Strait, the record is Moore’s most traditional-sounding collection to date, a no-frills portrait of small-town life and big-time dreams that’s not afraid to let its hair down and party at the end of a hard day’s work. Equal partscelebration and reflection, the album is a showcase for Moore’s evocative storytelling and unforgettable voice, complementedby an all-star band featuring GRAMMY and CMA Award-winning guitar icon Brent Mason ACM-winning pedal steel hero Paul Franklin among others.“I’ve never worked with those guys before, but they’ve played on some of my favorite albums of all time,” says Moore. “We thought it would be really cool to bring them in and record the whole thing at The Castle, this historic studio just south of Nashville where a lot of those legendary hit records were made. Not only did it result in my best album yet, it was also the most fun experience I’ve ever had recording.”An Arkansas native who grew up idolizing Dwight Yoakam and Keith Whitley, Moore knows a thing or two about hit records himself. After signing to The Valory Music Co., an imprint of the Big Machine Label Group, he landed his first country #1 with “Small Town USA,” the breakout single off his 2009 self-titled debut. The record went platinum, as did its 2011 follow-up, ‘Outlaws Like Me,’ which yielded yet another #1 single with “If Heaven Wasn’t So Far Away.” In 2014, Moore landed the coveted New Artist of the Year trophy at the ACM Awards after releasing his critically acclaimed third album, ‘Off The Beaten Path,’ and in 2016, he dropped ‘Kinda Don’t Care,’ his third consecutive #1 record. The New York Timeshailed Moore as proof that “old forms can stand even stronger with injections of new ideas,” while Billboard celebrated his “down-home personality and wry sense of humor,” and Rolling Stonepraised the “upbeat mix of contemporary country and honest twang that he perfected.”Moore’s songs racked up more than a billion streams globally, and he performed everywhere from Kimmelto The TodayShowin addition to headlining arenas and amphitheaters around the country




Tylor Brandon & the Neon West Band

Sometimes a night out singing Karaoke with friends can change your life forever.  That’s exactly what happened to Tylor Brandon in the fall of 2016. After receiving acclaim from friends about his baritone vocal range, Brandon began to perform with local New Mexico country artists before starting his own band in early 2017.  

The core of the band took shape quickly with award winning fiddle player Emily Anslover and lead guitar player Joshua Lee joining shortly after the band was founded.  The band played together across the Southwest with a few lineup changes before adding drummer Braden Anderson and bassist Edgar Wonder.

The band offers a unique voice in country music combining a love for traditional country artists such as George Strait with the energy of modern Texas country artists.  In the short time they have been together, Tylor Brandon and his band, “The Neon West” have shared the stage with Cody Johnson, Joe Nichols and Casey Donahew among others.

Brandon was voted “Best Male Vocalist” in the 2018 Weekly Alibi Reader’s Poll.  The band was awarded “Best Country & Western Band.” Always looking to move their sound forward, the band is currently writing their first album while continuing to play across the southwest.
