Organizers of "Rock the Red, " the alternative festival for conservatives during Democratic convention week in Charlotte, have signed up country rockers Travis Tritt and Charlie Daniels to perform.
They've also lined up Sumter. S.C.'s Lee Brice, whose hits include "A Woman Like You" and "Love Like Crazy."
Also look for "The Values Bus" to pull up. This rolling partnership between the conservative Heritage Foundation and the Family Research Council will register voters.
Coming soon: Rock the Red's Jason Lambert promises he'll leak the names of some of the nationally known conservatives who will speak at the event - set for Sept. 5 at Bojangles Coliseum.
