Last year, Myrtle Beach's Carolina Country Music Fest was a huge hit, and this year the festival is coming back to town for some more country entertainment. From June 10-12, 2016, you can see awesome live performances by artists like Keith Urban, Tim McGraw, Florida Georgia Line, Jake Owne, Chase Rice, Cole Swindell, Joe Nichols, Kelsea Ballerini, Michael Ray, Chase Bryant, A Thousand Horses, and many more. 

And unless you live here or have friends or family to stay with, you’ll need to book a room. Luckily there are several area hotels and resorts offering nice discounts during the week of the big event, and some of them are also selling festival passes at a reduced rate.

Check out this list, pick the one that’s right for you, and get ready for a weekend of great tunes and fun in the sun:
