Chapel Hart

Chapel Hart is a trio of Mississippi women who sing pure country music the way it was meant to be sung.  The group was a huge hit when they competed on America’s Got Talent and their talent propelled them to a spot on the 2023 CMA Television Awards show with their original hit, “You Can Have Him, Jolene.”  Danica and Devynn Hart and their cousin Trea Swindale combine their Mississippi roots with Louisiana spunk to put on a high energy show that will show you why they were inducted into CMT’s Next Women of Country in 2021.

The Big Dam Horns

The Big Dam Horns play your favorite party and dance tunes from the 1960’s through today.  Taking their name from Little Rock’s iconic bridge, the 12-member group brings its horn infused one-two punch of jazz, blues, soul and R&B with a little rock and roll thrown in for good measure.  They will have you stomping your feet, clapping your hands and dancing the night away.

Kish & Pamela

Kish and Pamela will bring their rocking contemporary country sound to the stage and be sure to entertain you. Kish Moody and Pamela Hopkins, who returns from tour the week before Depot Days, will play many of your favorites and some original music currently on country radio!  Get ready for a fun show full of energy and sing along with your favorites.

Memphissippi Sounds

Two gifted musicians, Cameron Kimbrough and Damion “Yella P” Pearson, better known as the Memphissippi Sounds, bring their custom blend of urban Memphis hip-hop and north Mississippi hill country blues to the stage.  The blues will reach right into you as you hear Yella P on the harmonica or listen to the two riff on their guitars.  It will be clear why their debut album received a Blues Award nomination for Best Emerging Artist Album.  You’ll see for yourself why they are a King Biscuit Blues Festival favorite.


Contemporary Christian band Crutchfield from Malvern, Arkansas will kick off music at Depot Days.  Crutchfield has opened for well-known Christian groups like Crowder and Skillet and will bring their blend of a little rock, a little country, a little pop and a whole lot of faith to the Terry Scoggins Memorial Stage in the Front Street Park in downtown Newport.
