Buddy Guy, Billy Ry Cyrus at Crossroads in the Vines at Roche Estate

Roche Estate will host a new festival series for 2018 bringing together the biggest names in country and blues for two massive days of premium music, food and entertainment.

Crossroads Country in the Vines will take place on March 24, welcoming Billy Ray Cyrus, Lee Kernaghan, Kasey Chambers, John Williamson, The McClymonts, Sara Storer, Adam Harvey and Beccy Cole.

Crossroads Blues in the Vines on February 10 will host seven-time Grammy Award winner Buddy Guy (US), Ian Moss, Diesel, Russell Morris, Richie Kotzen (US), Larkin Poe (US), Ted Mulry Gang, Kevin Borich and Mia Dyson.

The artist line ups have been lovingly selected to ensure a selection that excites true music fans.

Returning for the first time in eighteen years, Billy Ray Cyrus is one of the country world’s biggest names, exploding the genre into the mainstream with the iconic hit ‘Achy Breaky Heart’.

“Back in 1993 was when I kicked off my world tour in Australia, so now 25 years later it just kinda felt like the right thing to do at the right time,” said Billy Ray. “I love the fans there. They love their music, they love their football, they love the arts. It’s a great country with great people and we love coming down there and playing.”

For blues fans, it doesn’t get much bigger than Buddy Guy. Described by Eric Clapton as “the best guitar player alive”, Guy’s six-decade career has been one of the most influential in blues history.
