Summer seems far away, but it’s never too early to get your cowboy hat and dancing shoes ready.

The City of Woodstock released the lineup for its 20th summer concert series in a Facebook post Tuesday. And there’s everything from country to funk.

“We wanted a band line-up that was diverse, so that there was something for everyone,” Woodstock City Manager Jeff Moon said in the post.

The free concerts will be at Northside Hospital-Cherokee Amphitheater in downtown Woodstock and start at 7:30 p.m.

The post said city officials are working on getting a shuttle for off-site parking but information on that wouldn’t come until after the new year. 

Oh, and did you want to know which bands were coming? Here you go.

May 12, Charlie Daniels Band

Charlie Daniels, who was recently inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame, is a legend of the genre, and his song “The Devil Went Down to Georgia” doesn’t hurt either.

June 10, Robert Randolph and the Family Band

Robert Randolph and the Family Band combines rock, funk, soul and jazz in a jam band format.

July 8, Drivin’ N Cryin’

This southern rock band was created in Atlanta in 1985. It was inducted into the Georgia Music Hall of Fame in 2015.

Billed as “the Ultimate 90s Experience,”  they will “take you back to the days of dial-up internet, slap bracelets, Tamagotchi pets and the music you forgot you loved.”

How 90s are they? When The Atlanta Journal-Constitution recently visited the band’s website, the song that plays is Third Eye Blind’s “Semi-Charmed Life.” 

Sept. 9, Runaway June

The city compared this country music trio to the Dixie Chicks and said its music “speaks to the modern woman.”
