Windy Hill Farm and Preserve launches Summer Concert Series, opens to public

June 23, 2022

Windy Hill Farm and Preserve will host a Summer Concert Series to celebrate the season, present music from regional and nationally recognized artists and introduce guests to the newly expanded East Tennessee resort.

Located in Loudon, Windy Hill Farm and Preserve is an all-inclusive boutique resort with accommodations ranging from nine private cabins to an eight-room guesthouse and a spacious farmhouse for groups and large families. It also features an on-site restaurant, Wilder at Windy Hill, a hunting lodge, working farm and wildlife habitat.

The Summer Concert Series launch coincides with the opening celebration of Windy Hill Farm and Preserve as an overnight leisure destination. The series kicks off the weekend of July 1-2 with two concerts by Cruz Contreras, founder and frontman of The Black Lillies.

Contreras has partnered with Windy Hill to curate a group of the region’s top independent Americana artists to headline the series.

“Windy Hill Farm and Preserve is a place where guests can come to unwind and recharge and leave with a renewed connection to the world around them – and the experience engages all the senses,” General Manager Steven Brewington said. “Adding Cruz’s music against the backdrop of the farm was a wonderful way for us to celebrate our opening. Now, with his help, we’ll spend the summer adding the sounds of the region amid the visual beauty of nature, the tastes of the restaurant, the smell of fresh air.

“We can’t wait for people to visit us and experience Windy Hill – whether as overnight guests or coming to enjoy a concert.”

The Summer Concert Series at Windy Hill Farm and Preserve will feature the following artists:

  • Cruz Contreras
  • Amanda Anne Platt & The Honeycutters
  • Tyler Ramsey and Carl Broemel
  • Jill Andrews
  • Caroline Spence
  • Erick Baker
  • Chatham County Line
  • The Steel Wheels
  • Additional artists to be announced

In addition to VIP concert access included for overnight guests at the all-inclusive resort, tickets are available to the public and include options for the Saturday night outdoor concert with either dining at Wilder restaurant before the show or inventive takes on classic concert concessions during the show. Each concert also will have a cash bar.

Tickets range without overnight accommodations from $50-$150. Tickets for the first three shows currently are on sale and include Cruz Contreras on Friday, July 1, and Saturday, July 2; Amanda Anne Platt & The Honeycutters on Saturday, July 16; and Tyler Ramsey and Carl Broemel on Saturday, July 30.

Additional artists announcements and a full schedule of the concert series from July-October 2022 will be posted at, where the public also can purchase tickets.

“Music tells the story of a place: its history, its people, its tradition,” Brewington said. “The way we aim to preserve and celebrate East Tennessee heritage at Windy Hill Farm will be amplified by these artists, and we look forward to enjoying the music and the farm together.”
