This year’s Windy City Smokeout music and barbecue festival will spice things up with the addition of Kacey Musgraves to its lineup.

The Grammy and Academy of Country Music Award-nominated Musgraves, will perform on the three-day festival’s opening night, July 10. Pat Green will be supporting. Musgraves is still working her gold certified 2013 release Same Trailer Different Park, which topped the Country Albums chart and hit No. 2 on the Billboard 200.

Chris Young will headline the July 11 show, while Lee Brice plays July 12. Dan + Shay, Will Hoge, Chris Stapleton, Jon Pardi, Old Dominion and A Thousand Horses are also slated to perform.

Ten barbecue joints will be serving during the festival, ranging from Chicago favorites such as Chicago Q, Lillie’s Q, Bub City and Smoque to visitors from Mississippi (Ubons), Arkansas (Hogapalooza), Texas (the Salt Lick BBQ) and more. Myron Mixon of TLC’s “BBQ Pitmasters” will present grilling seminars and Adam Richman of the Travel Channel’s Man v. Food will host a Sunday BBQ brunch.

This year’s Windy City Smokeout, the third annual, is expected to draw more than 35,000 people to its site on Grand Street at the Chicago River. Admissions range from $40 single day passes to $400 three day VIP passes. Details are available at www.windycitysmokeout.com.
