Etzel Entertainment President Tom Etzel, owner and producer of the inaugural event says, “Sidewinder is a country music festival that music fans and followers alike can enjoy each year at a prominent local venue and accessible location at WestWorld of Scottsdale.

“WestWorld is an ideal property to launch the festival considering its substantial footprint, proximity to the greater-Phoenix area and beautiful setting at the base of the McDowell Mountains.”

In addition to launching, owning and operating his own music festival, Azar’s hit single “I Don’t Have To Be Me, Til Monday” received three Million-Air awards from BMI and is one of the top five most played songs of the past decade on country radio.
