StarVista/Time Life and Entertainment Cruise Productions have announced plans for a second country music-themed cruise with performances by Martina McBride, Charley Pride, Larry Gatlin & The Gatlin Brothers and nearly a dozen other bands.

The seven-night Country Music Cruise, as it’s being called, will kick off Jan. 18, 2015 in Fort Lauderdale on Holland America’s Eurodam with ports of call  in Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas; Frederiksted, St. Croix; Nassau, Bahamas; and Half Moon Cay, Holland America’s private island in the Bahamas.

The around-the-clock music fest will include nightly concerts on a main stage as well as songwriter workshops, guitar playing seminars, panel discussions, Q&A events, cooking exhibitions, CD listening parties and autograph sessions.

The lineup of country music performers also will include Lorrie Morgan, John Anderson, Aaron Tippin, Darryl Worley, Asleep at The Wheel, Restless Heart, Wade Hayes, Bryan White, and Chuck Mead & His Grassy Knoll Boys. Television personality Lorianne Crook, of the long-running talk show Crook & Chase, will return as the official host of the voyage.
