The 2017 Watershed country music festival is in the books. Held at the Gorge Amphitheater in central Washington state, the three-day gathering is among the most scenic festivals in the nation, with the venue situated on a cliff overlooking the Columbia River.
This year, Luke Bryan, Chris Stapleton and Darius Rucker were among the headliners, with a deep roster of support acts fleshing out the bill. Old Dominion, Randy Houser, Lauren Alaina and Lee Brice all performed, as did the fiery singer-songwriter Ashley McBryde, one of Rolling Stone Country‘s Artists You Need to Know. Even foul-mouthed country character Wheeler Walker Jr. turned in a late-night set. Watch today’s Ram Report for a glimpse into the festival, including its picturesque setting.
Organizers have already announced the dates for the 2018 installment. Next year’s Watershed is set for August 3rd through August 5th.
