Everyone from New Kids on the Block to Lenny Kravitz to Alanis Morissette to Haim has performed at Live in the Vineyard. Started in 2008 by Bobbii Hach Jacobs and Claire Parr (Parr has since left the organization), the multi-day music festival takes place in Napa twice yearly. However, unlike BottleRock or Festival Napa Valley, tickets to Live in the Vineyard are not available for purchase.

The 500-800 attendees are sweepstake winners who receive tickets from special radio station promotions with iHeart Radio, Cumulus, Entercom, Westwood One, and other local participating stations. In the past ten years, the private festival has become well known. For music lovers looking to experience an intimate concert in an Unplugged-like setting, a ticket is coveted.

Last week for the first time in the festival’s history, the team hosted a country-themed extravaganza. Live in the Vineyard Goes Country was presented in partnership with the Academy of Country Music. A portion of the proceeds raised from the event was donated to Lifting Lives, the Academy of Country Music’s philanthropic organization. The three-day mid-week event featured acoustic performances by Hunter Hayes, Old Dominion, Cam, Cale Dodds, and Cash Campbell. Ticket holders were also treated to the fruit of the Valley at a wine reception and brunch.

The highlight of Live in the Vineyard Goes Country? A show-stopping concert by Carrie Underwood at Blue Note Napa. Only 500 attendees were allowed into the historic venue, and there were virtually no bad seats. After moving sets by Parmalee, Ashley McBryde, and Hayes, Underwood took the stage with a small backup band. Despite recent news of an accident that left her face permanently scarred, Underwood looked stunning. She glowed onstage while singing a variety of her hits like Good Girl, Undo It, Wasted, Something in the Water, and Dirty Laundry.

Before the show, Underwood enjoyed her time in Napa. In an Instagram post, she shared that the Valley is her “happy place!” Underwood and her family, husband Mike Fisher and three-year-old son, Isaiah, enjoyed a meal cooked by chef Michael Chiarello. She also went wine tasting in Italics state-of-the-art cave. Taylor Martin, Italics Winegrowers general manager, told Haute Living that Underwood was a pleasure and charmed everyone at the vineyard. Thanks to Underwood’s phenomenal show, it’s safe to say the first Live in the Vineyards Goes Country was a roaring success.

The next Live in the Vineyard event is scheduled for November 2-4, 2018.
