Beaufort Water Festival has announced its concert act. What do you think of the choice?

Another country artist is coming to Beaufort’s waterfront this summer.

Tyler Farr will headline the Beaufort Water Festival’s annual concert on July 13 in Henry C. Chambers Waterfront Park, the festival announced Friday. Farr’s song “Redneck Crazy” peaked at No. 2 on the Billboard country chart in 2013 and “A Guy Walks Into A Bar” made it to No. 11 two years later.

Country band Copper Chief and singer Emily Ann Roberts will also perform.
