FAVOURITE Gympie daughter and X Factor sensation Caitlyn Shadbolt will join the reigning King of Country, Adam Brand, as ambassador for this year' Gympie Music Muster.

The Muster office made a series of exciting announcements yesterday, including that five-time Grammy Award winning singer/songwriter Mary Chapin Carpenter will make her Muster debut this year. Mary's two-and-a-half-decade recording career has seen her sell 13 million records and develop a remarkably loyal and devoted international fan base. Mary's Muster appearance in August will be her only Queensland performance.

The 2015 festival will be held over four massive days from Thursday, August 27, until Sunday, August 30.

Festival director Jeff Chandler said yesterday the Muster was known for celebrating country music in all its forms and the 2015 line-up was no exception.

"We have the genre's biggest stars including Adam Brand, Troy Cassar-Daley, Catherine Britt and Morgan Evans as well as giants of blues, folk, bluegrass, rock and more," he said.

"Breakthrough artists are also well represented with the inclusion of 2015 Male and Female Artists of the Year, Luke O'Shea and Amber Lawrence."

Among the rest of the star-studded line-up will be Ian Moss, Luke O'Shea, Ross Wilson, Tift Merritt from the USA, Wagons, Mental As Anything, Jasmine Rae, Drew McAlister, Caitlyn Shadbolt, Travis Collins, Frankie J Holden and Wilbur Wilde, Troy Kemp, Mason Rack Band, Ashleigh Dallas, Chelsea Basham, Kaylens Rain, Kevin Bennett, Davidson Brothers, James Blundell, Keith Potger, Hillbilly Goats, Matt Cornell, Chase The Sun, Jody Direen from New Zealand, Muster Poets, Deep Creek Road, Kevin Borich, Mustered Courage, Peter Denahy, Allan Caswell, Rusty and The Ayers Rockettes, Shaun Kirk, Victoria Avenue, Tim Wheatly, Muster Ukes, The Fabulous Green Machine, The Unforgiven and Kellys Heroes.
