The final lineup is now set for the 2017 Foothills Festival, with another nationally known musician added to the event.
The festival is scheduled to take place Sept. 15-16 in downtown Jasper.
John Paul White, a member of the Grammy Award-winning duo The Civil Wars, was recently added to the list of artists for this year’s festival, which also includes Spin Doctors, Bonnie Bishop, North Mississippi All Stars and Muddy Magnolias.
White, who lives in Florence with his wife and children, restarted his solo career in 2016 with his new album, “Beulah.”
“As always, Zach Baker has gotten exceptional artists for the Foothills Festival in 2017,” said Tana Collins, one of the organizers of the festival. “Many people know and love John Paul White from his days with The Civil Wars. I think he will impress everyone with his solo work. His music is a beautiful, eclectic marriage of folk ballads, Southern rock and acoustic pop.
