Featuring an impressive selection of top country stars and rising talent, this one-day event celebrates all kinds of country music and gives fans a chance to check out all of their favorite artists gathered in a single place. The concert is hosted by 99.5 WYCD, one of Detroit's top country radio stations.
Downtown HoedownCreated by the former country music station WCXI, the Hoedown has a long and illustrious history that dates back to 1983. It was at the time one of the largest free country music festivals in the world. Once WCXI began transitioning away from country music, however, WYCD took over as host of the event in 2000. The concert event moved from its traditional home of Hart Plaza to the Comerica Park grounds in 2012 to alleviate congestion due to the growing crowds. Three years later, the concert moved to the open air DTE Energy Music Theatre in Clarkston, MI, located just to the north of Detroit. The organizers also shortened the event from three days to only one day. Over its history, the Hoedown has attracted huge country stars such as Mel Tillis, Tanya Tucker, Rascal Flatts, Trace Adkins and Hank Williams, Jr.
