It’s Back! The Return of the CCMF

One of the most exciting times of the year! photo from

The biggest annual event in Myrtle Beach is coming back and things are starting to feel like normal again! With 2020 being the most challenging year for well, everyone, it is such a relief to see one of the biggest highlights of the year return with the Carolina Country Music Fest from Thursday, June 10 to Sunday, June 13, 2021. Since 2015, this 3-day extravaganza of Country Music has helped kick off the summer season on the Grand Strand. Growing to over 30,000 attendees, this celebration is not only a great boost to our area’s economy, but now more than ever, to the attendees, performers, and local’s mental health. The CCMF is definitely “chicken soup for the soul”! With it’s triumphant return in 2021, things are looking up!

Now featuring 3 stages with over 32 artists (and counting!), the CCMF is not to be missed. The very best in the genre have performed during this festive weekend, including: Big & Rich, Lady Antebellum, Rascal Flatts, Colt Ford, Florida Georgia Line, Keith Urban, Kenny Chesney, Jason Aldean, Toby Keith, Zac Brown Band, Alabama, and Dierks Bentley. This year features Luke Combs, Eric Church, Jake Owen, and South Carolina’s very own, Darius Rucker. There’s always surprise guests and you’re sure to see amazing performances, as each performer is tapped into the excitement of Myrtle Beach in the Summer!

In addition to the best performances, you can also enjoy the great food and drink vendors located right there at the festival. There are several tiers of tickets ranging from $39.00 for the McDonald’s Thursday Night Kickoff Concert to a Four-Day pass at $229.00. There are also VIP tickets which put you in an exclusive, private area at the main stage, with private restrooms, and includes food and beverages!  

Grande Shores is the PERFECT place to unwind after a fun day!

The CCMF has made it a breeze to park and get around the area. Guests can easily make their way to and from the festival when staying at a nearby resort, like Grande Shores. Grande Shores is only a 5-10 minute drive to the festival and is located in one of the most appealing sections of Myrtle Beach. You’ll be able to relax in this relatively uncrowded section after a fun day enjoying the festivities. Kick back on your balcony and let that salty ocean breeze refresh or take a dip in the gorgeous, shimmering pools. Grande Shores and the CCMF go together, like BBQ and hush puppies!

Just like putting your toes in the sand and letting the warm surf tickle your ankles, it’s such a pleasure to have the CCMF back after a year off. Now – it’s up to you to call us to secure your beautiful accommodations for this special time of year! See you soon!
