Chase Rice To Headline 92.3 WIL's 2016 JingleFest Concert



Annual holiday tradition to be held at The Family Arena on Friday, December 16

92.3 WIL will proudly present JingleFest on Friday, December 16th at The Family Arena in St. Charles, Missouri. The 14th annual concert highlights the best and brightest new stars from Nashville and will feature live performances by Chase Rice, Granger Smith, Maren Morris, and Kane Brown.

As a supporting act in 2014, Chase Rice returns to the JingleFest stage this year as the headliner. With top 5 singles "Ready Set Roll" and "Gonna Wanna Tonight" in 2015 and a new music in 2016 including "Everyone We Know Does", Rice has said JingleFest is "one of the coolest shows I can look back on my career and say that I've done...The most fun I've ever had on an arena show!"

Coming off of the #1 single "Backroad Song", Granger Smith is one of the most buzzworthy artists in Nashville and takes the JingleFest stage for the first time this December. Smith's alter ego, Earl Dibble's Jr., also continues to gain popularity, with his first music video "The Country Boy Song" racking up over 12.1 million views online.

Rounding out the lineup are newcomers Maren Morris and Kane Brown, both of whom continue to quickly gain steam in Nashville. Morris is coming off her #1 single "My Church" and Brown has almost 16 million views on YouTube (and counting) every day.

With another jam-packed lineup for 2016, WIL Program Director, Scott Roddy, notes, "From Taylor Swift to Sam Hunt, JingleFest has proven to be THE venue to introduce St. Louis new country followers to the fresh faces of country music! This year's lineup, curated by Music Director and Midday Host Danny Montana, continues this long standing tradition."

Started in 2003 as a free show to thank the WIL listeners, part of the JingleFest tradition lies within their infamous ticket blasts, where listeners line up for hours to get a pair of general admission tickets to the show. Outside the sale of a select number of reserved seats, the ticket blast giveaways are the only way into the show.

Pit tickets and select reserved seats are available for purchase and will go on sale on Friday, September 30th at 12:00 Noon through The Family Arena and online at Reserved tickets start at $35. The first chance to score general admission tickets happens at Fortel's Pizza Den the week of October 17th. Ticket blasts for the 2016 JingleFest concert begin the week of October 25th.
