Country Thunder shuts down as storm system rolls through

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]A severe thunderstorm tracking towards the Country Thunder site at Craven forced organizers to shut things down early Saturday night.

Tritt was to be followed by Tim McGraw to end Day Three of the four-day country music festival.  People were told to head to one of the permanent structures on Main Street in Craven or to their campsite. Just before 11:30 p.m, it was announced due to the storm damaging some of McGraw’s equipment, he would be unable to come out. Organizers do say anyone with Saturday day tickets will have them honoured for Sunday.

The festival ends Sunday with Chris Stapleton wrapping everything up.  The forecast is calling for another warm, humid day with a solid chance of showers or thundershowers occurring so festival-goers could be in for a repeat performance.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
