Brent Smith of Shinedown comments, "I've said it before, and I'll say it again...Rock n' Roll is a way of life, and Carolina Rebellion is living proof...We are honored to be on this year's lineup. We hope the Rebels are ready, because we are!!!"

Billy Gibbons of ZZ Top says, "ZZ Top is coming at'cha with some raucous rock 'n roll to the Rebellion. We are looking forward to this massive rock party…Come on!"

Co-Executive Producer Danny Wimmer says, "From its inception, we believed Carolina Rebellion would grow into a three day festival. There is a loyal rock fan base here to support Rebellion's continued growth. While this of course means another full day of music, including more classic artists, the entire festival experience will be noticeably enhanced. This year's emphasis will be on food. We will be hosting a 'Gourmet Man Food' offering that reflects the cultural food explosion that is happening all around the country."
