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.

2020 Music Fiesta Performer Brett Young

The “Here Tonight” country-pop artist made a PLATINUM-certified entrance in 2016 with his #1 hit, “Sleep Without You” and hasn’t stopped since. Other hits include “In Case You Didn’t Know,” which spent two weeks at #1 and became the second-most purchased/streamed country song of 2017 and his number one single “Like I Loved You.” Young has been named ASCAP’s 2018 Country Songwriter-Artist of the Year and received the top honor of Song of the Year at the BMI Country Awards for “In Case You Didn’t Know.”


2020 Music Fiesta Performer Jimmie Allen

The epitome of the phrase “persistence pays off,” Jimmie Allen laid it all on the line to make his dreams a reality. Now signed to BBR Music Group’s Stoney Creek Records, Allen’s debut single “Best Shot” is a certified hit, claiming the spot as the No. 1 Most Shazamed song in the format for eight consecutive weeks, and claiming the No. 1 spot on Country radio for three weeks, marking the first time a black artist has launched a career with a No. 1 hit with their debut single on Country radio.
On October 12th, Allen released his hotly-anticipated debut album, Mercury Lane, named in tribute to the street he grew up on and the origin of his incredible journey. Featuring a cutting-edge mix of country, rock, R&B and pop, Mercury Lane draws upon the influence of his family and small-town upbringing of the critically-acclaimed rising star. Rolling Stone raved Allen’s debut “challenges the narrowly defined model of what constitutes a next big thing in country music in 2018.”
The Southern Delaware native’s talent for songwriting is undeniable, having written a song that was featured in a Super Bowl commercial and appearing in a Diet Coke ad with megastar Taylor Swift. “Blue Jean Baby,” off his debut self-titled EP, immediately caught the attention of country music fans and critics alike with its soulful groove— rocketing it to the top of digital playlists, across all genres. After introducing his music at festivals across the country last summer, this winter Allen will hit the road once again to share the stage with Kane Brown and Scotty McCreery. The hot newcomer has already been heralded as one of the top “artists to watch in 2018” by Rolling StoneBillboard, Pandora, Sounds Like NashvilleNY Country Swag, Country Music Rocks and New England Country Music and has earned spots in CMT’s “18 for 2018” Listen Up program and Bobby Bones’ Class of 2018.
