Saturday's headliner is pop/country singer Lee Ann Rimes. It will be her first appearance at the Budweiser Downtown Hoedown. Look for her to sing her hits, "Blue," "One Way Ticket," "How Do I Live," and "I Need You."

The headliner for Sunday, May 15th is Tracy Byrd. He will be returning to the hoedown following a performance here in 2002. His current album is called "The Truth About Men." Some of his hits include "Ten Rounds with Jose Cuervo" and "Watermelon Crawl."
