GATLINBURG, Tenn. — Ole Smoky Distillery has announced their 2018 entertainment series, Summer of ‘Shine. This year, the leading moonshine company, in partnership with Moonstruck Management, is expanding their genre of musical acts by bringing in some rock and country artists to their mix of talented bluegrass bands.
The program will kick off with a performance from John Popper and will continue with big names such as Ashley McBryde, Love and Theft, Everclear and Eve 6. Ole Smoky has also booked a handful of authentic bluegrass bands that are always crowd favorites including Hogslop String Band, Balsam Range, Lonesome River Band, The Cleverlys, Russell Moore & IIIrd Tyme Out, and more.
“Last year’s Summer of Shine program was a great success and we are looking forward to our second year hosting amazing events that everyone can enjoy,” said Robert Hall, CEO of Ole Smoky. “Not only was it great for our business, but it also encouraged people to visit the area, which in turn brought much business to other establishments in Sevier County.”
This concert series comes as Ole Smoky gears up for the opening of their 4th distillery in Nashville, where more great musical entertainment will be offered.

Around four million people visit Ole Smoky’s three famed East Tennessee distilleries annually: Holler, Barrelhouse and Barn. The Holler see’s over two million visitors per year making it the most visited distillery in the world. In 2018, Ole Smoky will open a 4th location in Nashville.
