If you're anything like me and don't get out much- let alone, the state of Maine, then when I say the fest will be at Hunter Mountain in Hunter, NY- you may be like 'Whaaaaat, where's that at?' Just follow the handy-dandy map above, provided by the lovely folks at Google and you shall see.

The Taste of Country Music Festival is set for June 13th - 15th, 2013.
