Kid Rock and Kevin Costner Headline Country Thunder 2010? Ugh.

Last year Kid Rock headlined Tempe Music Fest. This year he's headlining Country Thunder. Is it just me or should the two festivals, which took place the same weekend last year, definitly not have this much in common?

Country Thunder does bring us Willie Nelson on Saturday, but that's barely enough to make up for the fact that Water World star Kevin Costner and country music's very worst musical personality, Big Kenny, are on the bill. The full scheduled, announced eariler today, is on the jump. I don't see myself driving to Florence for this unless it's for Willie.
