Lake Malone KY Concert — Dock Trot — Announces 2023 Lineup
Lake Malone is among the most beautiful of Kentucky's many lakes. The islands, that amazing hilly shoreline, those BIG TWIGS.
Dock Trot 2023
It's been a fun camping and picnic destination for as long as I can remember. But for the past few years, it's also been the home of Dock Trot--one of western Kentucky's newest music festivals.
Kudos to the Muhlenberg County Tourism Commission for taking advantage of the extraordinary ambience Lake Malone provides as the setting for a late-summer concert--a concert that will feature the following acts:
Fordsville KY native Dakota Hayden will make his second Dock Trot appearance this year. An American Idol fan-favorite, Dakota has been a contestant on the last two seasons of the iconic talent competition. In Season 20, both Katy Perry and Luke Bryan were impressed enough to dub Hayden "top-ten material." We look forward to all the "material" he'll bring with him to Lake Malone in September.
One Bullet Barney
For starters, a big tip of the hat to this band for its name selection. As a longtime fan of The Andy Griffith Show--"One Bullet Barney" refers to the legendary comedy series character Barney Fife and the one-bullet restriction put on him by his boss, Sheriff Andy Taylor--this truly speaks to me. But this southern rock band, which has been performing for more than a decade, earns its keep not by SPEAKING, but by doing this:
Party Down Live
One of the region's top cover bands, Party Down Live--based in Nashville--will be the finale act for Dock Trot this year. And these talented musicians cover the spectrum--rock, country, and pop. Having toured with the likes of Billy Idol, Keith Urban, Kelly Clarkson, Kane Brown, Selena Gomez, Kane Brown, and others, Party Down Live has this thing "down" to a science...well an art, I guess.
Additionally, a new partnership with The Country Station, 92.5 WBKR and Friday After 5 means the winner of the annual WBKR talent competition, "Friday Night Fight", will perform on the Dock Trot stage, as well as be a headliner during the September 1st finale of Friday After 5.
Dock Trot 2023 will continue its tradition of ending the event with a spectacular fireworks display.
What a blast this will be, and what a way to wrap up Summer 2023. We'll see you on the lake.
