NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Kentucky’s bourbon country will be pouring out a variety of music at their second annual Yake Music Festival, which will be held at The Amp at Dant Crossing on Saturday, July 2. Kentucky native, Dustin Collins, will be headlining the event along with opening acts Kaleb Cecil, No Deceit, Tony Logue, Hotel Whiskey and Taylor Hughes.

The Amp at Dant Crossing, which “provides an incredible backdrop of quintessential Kentucky scenery (The News-Enterprise),” kicked off their 2022 concert series with performances by Cole Swindell and Sara Evans in May, with additional star-studded performances to follow throughout summer and fall. Located in the scenic enclave of Gethsemane, just south of Lexington and Louisville, the 2,000-seat amphitheater kicked off its grand opening in Summer 2021 with a sold-out show by Little Big Town. Additional performances from chart-topping acts included Better Than Ezra, Phil Vassar, Mark Wills and more.
The Amp is a part of Dant Crossing, which is a 350-acre campus featuring the Log Still Distillery offering a unique Kentucky bourbon experience. It also includes five bed-and-breakfasts, a 20,000-square-foot wedding and event venue opening this spring and more amenities opening throughout 2022.

About Dustin Collins:
Billboard No. 1 singer-songwriter Dustin Collins has enlisted industry veterans Buddy Cannon (Kenny Chesney, Willie Nelson, Reba McEntire) and Bill McDermott (Tim McGraw, Martina McBride, Brad Paisley) to produce his forthcoming album, Workin’ Man. The title track was released from DCDL Entertainment on May 6 as the lead single. Collins penned seven songs on the album, including “Workin Man.” The album also features songs written by CMA winner Brett Eldredge, Larry McCoy (Thomas Rhett’s “Make Me Wanna”), Sherrie Austin (Blake Shelton’s “Startin’ Fires”) and Will Rambeaux (Faith Hill’s “Wild One”). A portion of proceeds from the lead single and full album will benefit GUMI (Glad You Made It) Camp USA. GUMI focuses on providing U.S. veterans with the tools they need to help them heal after deployment overseas and enable them to re-enter society. The camp is located on a 258-acre piece of property in southeast Taney County, Mo. Veterans may reside without cost to them and heal at their own pace. Workin’ Man follows Collins’ latest album, It’s Been Awhile, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Heatseekers South Central Albums chart. His independent single “Cold Dead Hands” ascended to No. 1 on the Billboard Hot Singles Sales chart. The Georgia-born and Kentucky-raised entertainer also earned a slot on Aaron Watson’s Vaquero Tour and has opened for Tanya Tucker, Shenandoah, Clay Walker, Chris Janson, Kane Brown, Granger Smith and many more.
