Every Stars & Guitars Artist Ever in 10 Years in Fayetteville
It’s hard to believe that this year will be the 10th anniversary of WKML bringing Stars & Guitars to Fayetteville. But it really is!
Well, actually it’s been LONGER, but you know what happened in 2020. So, while this it’s been 11 years since our first epic show, this is the 10th time we’ve come together to celebrate the best and brightest in country music.
Some of you may think the show has been around longer than 10 years, and you’re sorta right. WKML held the Singer-Songwriter Showcase for many years, before switching to the current format in 2012. And while the show was similar, Stars & Guitars is just another level of experience.
There are some extremely interesting facts about our artist history that we uncovered in our research. All of these numbers are NOT including the star-studded lineup being unveiled all this week for the 10th anniversary show.
But in the previous nine years of shows, we’ve had 39 different recording artists appear on stage. Those artists have combined for 112 No. 1 country music singles as either a singer or a songwriter. And how about these awards stats:
- 117 Academy of Country Music nominations, and 20 wins from 25 artists
- 72 CMA Awards nominations and 9 wins from 18 artists
- 22 Grammy Awards nominations and 3 wins from 7 artists
So let’s take a look back at every show since that 2012 event. Here’s every artist who has ever appeared on stage in Fayetteville for Stars & Guitars!
