Old Dominion to headline Eau Claire’s Country Jam USA, replacing Morgan Wallen

EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WKBT) — Country music group Old Dominion will headline Country Jam USA July 15 in Eau Claire after Morgan Wallen canceled his summer performances.

“We are thrilled to announce Old Dominion, CMA Vocal Group of the Year, has been added to the incredible Country Jam line up, performing Thursday July 15th,” said Kathy Wright, General Manager at Country Jam USA. “This group is incredibly talented and adds to the amazing line up already slated for Thursday.”

After COVID-19 canceled last year’s event, Wright and other organizers are more than excited for 2021.

“We have been working with the Health Department and local authorities and are so excited to welcome everyone back to Jam 2021,” said Wright. “The return on live music and special events this summer is going to be a great moment for our community.”

Country Jam’s 2021 diverse lineup consists of 20+ acts on 3 stages. In addition to Old Dominion, Chris Young and Jon Pardi will be headlining. HARDY and Rodney Atkins will be hitting the Country Jam stage for the first time, while fan favorites Phil Vassar, BlackHawk and Tracy Lawrence and Chris Kroeze will have everyone on their feet. “We worked hard to create a balance of the hottest news acts, while staying true to our favorites,” said Wright.

Wallen was originally slated to headline; however, he announced Tuesday on his Instagram that he has canceled all of his summer concerts.

“Not only has this time revealed to me the ways in which I want to improve, but it’s also reminded me that I am still very proud of who I am and the man I am becoming.
“I’ve found this time away to be very valuable to me in many ways, but I feel like I need a little more of it, and therefore will not be performing tour dates this summer,” he wrote. “It means I won’t be playing festivals or the Luke Bryan tour dates. But it’s important to me personally, if you can, still go to these shows — support country music. Country music is back and that’s a beautiful damn thing.”
Wallen took a break in February after he was criticized for using the n-word in a video first posted by TMZ.
Last month Billboard reported that his “Dangerous: The Double Album” spent its first 10 weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard 200.
