Performers at the event included Waddie Mitchell, comedian Baxter Black, Gary McMahan, Don Edwards, Fred Hargrove, Carin Mari & Pony Express, Sons & Brothers, Sarah Murphey and Mei-Ling Felten.

According to a relase by the American Farm Bureau Federation, the festival raised 680,000 dollars in cash, hay and other donations. – CelebrityAccess Staff Writers
