One week after Alan Jackson and Kid Rock kicked off SeaWorld’s 2014 Bands, Brews and BBQ concert series, another country act has been announced to headline week No. 2. Gretchen Wilson will perform on Saturday (Feb. 8), while comedian Bill Engvall will take the stage on Sunday.

Despite protesters from PETA and other animal rights groups, Jackson and Kid Rock both played to capacity crowds in Orlando, Fla. last weekend. Nine other performers backed out of the concert series — including Martina McBride, Willie Nelson and Trace Adkins — after CNN aired their controversial ‘Blackfish’ documentary on television.

SeaWorld has worked to keep its performers a secret until days before each concert. Wilson and Engvall are listed as replacements by the Orlando Sentinel, meaning they were added after the mass exodus. The ‘Redneck Woman’ singer will play Bayside Stadium at 4PM on Saturday. The show is included with tickets to the theme park.
