History[edit]

Country Jam USA was founded in Eau Claire, Wisconsin in 1987. The festival was once known as Shake Rattle 'n Roll but with increasing demands and growth in the country music industry, it morphed into the outdoor music festival of today. The first Country Jam[1] festival took place in 1990 and was held in Eau Claire, Wisconsin. With its thriving success, the ownership and staff expanded west producing the first Colorado Country Jam during 1992 in Grand Junction. The newest product of Country Jam USA was in 2016 with the addition of the Blue Ox Music Festival. Country Jam USA continues to showcase buzz worthy artists and headliners making it a must-see attraction in the famous Midwest.
