Lovebettie – Willow Hill (2:30-3:30 pm)
Fortify Fest will be Rolling Stone acclaimed artists, Lovebettie’s final performance before they debut as the new Nashville based Willow Hill! Rolling Stone “Band to Watch” and Nashville’s newest country sensation, Willow Hill, has quickly become one of the hottest groups on the rise. The charismatic husband and wife duo have developed a groundswell fanbase with their modern twist on a classic country sound: infusing quirky fun-loving energy, heartfelt storytelling, and a captivating live show that has made them a go-to for major events and festivals.
Regularly touring both internationally and nationally up to 200 dates per year, Alexandra and CT Fields previously fronted the acclaimed rock group, Lovebettie, which was a regular name at major festivals like Sturgis, Rocklahoma, Warped Tour, and Summerfest – where they supported the legendary Pat Benatar and won the Emerging Artist Series. The group was also voted in the top 3 out of 20,000 acts to perform at The Grammys, and performed The Official Lady Gaga Afterparty for her Monsters Ball Tour.
In the first year as Willow Hill, the group toured the United Kingdom, Virgin Islands, and a majority of the United States, sharing bills with multitudes of national acts including Miranda Lambert, Zac Brown, Aaron Lewis, and many more in support of their debut album, Highway One. Recorded at Nashville’s historic Benchmark Studios, Highway One was produced by Zach Abend and Jeff Cohen, who’s credits include Sugarland, Big & Rich, and The Band Perry. The Ep immediately gained steam and the band began showcasing for major labels, and some of the industry’s biggest tastemakers.
