Just as country music has traditional and contemporary genres, the Breakers Resort in downtown Myrtle Beach also offers a mix of the old and the new. Hosting memorable family vacations for more than 85 years, the Breakers has kept up with the changing times with upgraded facilities, remodeled accommodations and modern amenities to become Myrtle Beach's most popular resort.

For those looking to enjoy a weekend of country concerts in style, the Breakers is offering discounted rooms and tickets to the Second Annual Carolina Country Music Festival in downtown Myrtle Beach, about a mile south of the resort property. Guests can save up to 25 percent off accommodations during the show, as well as up to $53 per person off the cost of a three-day ticket.

The Breakers is even offering fans the chance to win one of 20 pairs of free tickets to the concert event of the summer, thanks to partner Brittain Resorts & Hotels. Simply follow the Breakers' social media platforms on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to receive details about how you can attend the show for free. Guests can keep up with the latest festival updates through the CCMF app and share their experiences using the hashtags #ccmf, #ccmf4life, #ccmflove and #ccmflive.

Back by popular demand, the Carolina Country Music Fest made a strong debut in Myrtle Beach last year with more than 50,000 fans in attendance to see such stars as Lady Antebellum, Rascal Flatts and Hunter Hayes. This year's event, scheduled for June 10-12, has even more big-name stars on the stages, highlighted by headliners Tim McGraw, Keith Urban and Florida Georgia Line. Early projections call for an even larger crowd than last year's.

Held on an 18-acre oceanfront lot on the Myrtle Beach Boardwalk, the Carolina Country Music Fest is only a short distance south of the Breakers. Guests can make the easy walk to the show or catch a shuttle to and from the venue, where more than 30 bands in all will play on multiple stages. Offering concession stands, vendor booths, a zipline and other activities, the festival allows patrons to grab great food, drinks and souvenirs while stretching out on a beach blanket to enjoy the show.

The festivities begin with the Visit Myrtle Beach Kick Off Concert on Thursday, June 9, from 6 to 11 p.m., followed by all-day affairs on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Shows run from 1 to 11 p.m. on all three festival days, with nonstop music playing on various stages. In addition to the headliners, other acts include Cole Swindell, Jake Owen, A Thousand Horses, Kelsea Ballerini, Michael Ray, Maren Morris, Chris Lane, Kane Brown, Joe Nichols, Chase Bryant, Lauren Jenkins and more artists to be announced. Three-day passes are available in both the general-admission and VIP sections, and fans are encouraged to bring beach blankets for seating.

The best part of the three-day event for guests at the Breakers may be the time before and after the shows. Wake up with the sun rising over the Atlantic Ocean while you enjoy a cup of coffee on your oceanfront balcony, and have a hearty breakfast at one of our on-site restaurants. After a full day and night of music at the festival, come home and relax with a nightcap at the Rusty Reel Bar & Grill or a dip in our oceanfront pools, hot tubs and other water attractions. Then it’s time to get a good night's rest in your cozy nest at the Breakers Myrtle Beach Resort and get ready to do it all over again the next day.
