Classic rockers Crosby, Stills and Nash, country star Clint Black, actor Billy Bob Thornton, country duo Brooks and Dunn, Grateful Dead spinoffs Bob Weir and RatDog and singer Bonnie Raitt are among the stars that figure to shine brightest this summer at the Britt Festivals.

The lineup for Britt’s 46th season on the grounds of a pioneer estate in Jacksonville was announced Wednesday at a lunch at the Britt offices in Medford.

“I think we hit the ball out of the park,” Britt Executive Director Rick Hood said.

Returning artists include B.B. King, Mark Knopfler, Lyle Lovett and His Large Band, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, the Steve Miller Band, Lucinda Williams and Willie Nelson.

The season runs May 31 through Sept. 7 with 41 shows starring some of the top artists in the worlds of rock, pop, blues, country, jazz and dance.

But wait, there's more!
