The two-day Winstock Country Music Festival is scheduled to be held in 2023. This festival takes place in Winsted, Minnesota, United States. It is widely regarded as the upper Midwest’s first major country music festival of the summer.
You may think that talking about 2023 is still too soon. However, the festival will return in June 2023, which is not far away. But what makes us talk about the festival is that it has already announced its 2023 lineup.
And you’re going to love it. The official website penned, “Winstock is one of the Upper Midwest’s premier outdoor country music and camping festivals organized entirely by volunteers, with all proceeds from this event used to help fund private education for students from Winsted and surrounding communities.

Little About Cody Johnson
The official website of the festival penned a little about Cody Johnson based on his appearance.
The website penned, “The brand new 18-track double album Human, which debuted at the top of the country albums chart the week of its release, is stacked top to bottom with songs that Johnson considers ones that were originally dubbed too country for country.
When the songwriters told Johnson and his team that the tunes, they’d penned were being rejected by other Nashville artists, he said, ‘Bring those to me.’”
Johnson also said, “I literally felt like I was just window shopping. Like I was a millionaire in a diamond shop. I was like, ‘I want that one. I want that one, I want that one.’ And then when we added all those songs up, we had 18 that we knew we had to record.”
Little About Miranda Lambert
Just like Cody, there’s also a description of Miranda Lambert. Let’s know her better.
The official website penned, “Palomino,” the eighth solo album from Vanner Records/RCA Nashville superstar Miranda Lambert, arrived in April as the highest-debuting Country album of 2022.
Already named among the best albums of the year by TIME, Rolling Stone, Billboard, Stereogum, and more, it marks the latest installment in a storied career that has spanned seven previous number-one solo albums, 10 number-one hit radio singles, more than 70 prestigious awards, and countless sales certifications, earning the reigning ACM Entertainer of the Year praise from NPR as ‘the most riveting country star of her generation.’”
Also added, “Whether challenging conventional gender notions in her recent Top 10 hit ‘If I Was A Cowboy,’ or using her voice to write and record the inclusive Y’All Means All anthem for the latest season of Netflix’s ‘Queer Eye,’ the Texas native continues to expand the tent of the country genre via her music.”
