LakeFest 2022 – Gabby Barrett with Michael Ray and Erik Dylan
July 15, 2022
Headlining for LakeFest 2022 is Gabby Barrett, a chart-topping country music singer-songwriter and 2016 American Idol finalist. In 2021, Gabby won Favorite Country Album (Goldmine) and Favorite Country Song (“The Good Ones”) at the fan-voted 2021 American Music Awards. LakeFest is once again bringing a hot new country music singer to the hometown stage.
Singer-songwriter Michael Ray will also be appearing on the stage at LakeFest 2022. Ray gained prominence as the winner of the CW network’s reality television vocal competition The Next: Fame Is at Your Doorstep in 2012. Ray’s first Top Ten hit was “Think a Little Less” in 2016 and his most recent hit “Whiskey and Rain” reached top 5 on the charts and the Top 100 on YouTube’s all-genre list of songs in the United States.
Singer-songwriter Erik Dylan has shared stages with some of the biggest names in music, from Lynyrd Skynyrd to The Cadillac Three. As a Muscotah, KS native, Erik is a fifth generation Kansan with LakeFest memories of his own. Erik writes on Music Row with many of Nashville’s hit makers and has attracted like Kip Moore, Luke Combs, Eric Paslay, Eli Young Band, Justin Moore, Josh Phillips, Brett Cobb, Riley Green and even Hinder to record his songs. We are excited to welcome Erik to his hometown stage.
Lakefest is an annual concert event held in Atchison, KS each year in July. The event is held at a Warnock Lake and has headlined many up-and-coming artists over the years including Blake Shelton, Miranda Lambert, Rascal Flatts, and Darius Rucker.
