Beaver Creek, Colo., June 13, 2016 – This year’s annual Independence Day celebration in Beaver Creek will be full of energy from 12 p.m. through the evening, on Monday, July 4. Four musical acts including country star Jerrod Niemann will take the stage. The Stars, Stripes & Slides festivities will include inflatable castles and slides for kids, and food and drinks will fill the appetites for friends and families alike before the big nighttime fireworks display.
 
Once noon hits, the gates are open for Stars, Stripes & Slides where games, free slides, bounce houses, face painting, Arts & Crafts and more are available until 5 p.m. on the grass by Centennial Express Lift. Colorado native Tyller Gummersall takes the stage at 2 p.m., enticing the group with tracks from his new album “Long Ride Home,” and hometown inspired anthems such as “Colorado Rain.” Enjoy “The Good Life” with Oregon’s Jackson Michelson, taking the stage at 4 p.m. for a delectable mix of feel-good tunes with a bit of Southern twang. Redhead Express, a four sister group from Alaska, performs at 6 p.m. Captivating crowds with their fiery melodies of fiddle, banjo, mandolin, and bass, the sisters deliver raw, beautiful harmonies in “Roots” that speak to the country-lovers’ soul.
 
Jerrod Niemann takes the stage at 8 p.m. There is hardly a country performer as fun and energetic on stage as Jerrod Niemann, a Kansas native with chart-topping summer jams such as “Lover, Lover,” “Drink to That All Night,” and “Blue Bandana.” In addition to writing tracks of his own, Niemann has written numerous songs for Garth Brooks. With feel-good country tunes, Niemann often brings crowds to their feet, clapping along to the catchy beats. To end the night, a fireworks display will light up the sky at 9:30 p.m.
