Surprises keep coming for this year’s Azalea Festival.

The board announced Thursday that American Idol fan favorite, Kellie Pickler will headline a concert on April 1st. American Idol winner, David Cook will headline a show at Trask Coliseum the next night.

“When you are able to bring in stars who have been on American Idol, the number one show in the country, you are kind of piggybacking on what they are doing. Plus, as the show has just started back since January the excitement is building, so these stars will be capitalizing on that, and hopefully we will be able to capitalize on that as well,” said Azalea Festival president, Sherman Criner.

The Azalea Festival will run from April 1st through the 5th. To order tickets, you can contact the Azalea Festival Office at 910-794-4650.

WWAY will bring you much of it live as the Azalea Festival’s official station.
