ORLANDO, Fla. - SeaWorld on Wednesday announced its lineup for this weekend at the Bands, Brew & BBQ Festival.

Grammy-award winning country singer Gretchen Wilson will perform at the Bayside Stadium Saturday at 4 p.m. and comedian/TV star Bill Engvall will perform on Sunday at 4 p.m., according to SeaWorld.

Nine other acts previously canceled their appearances at the event citing backlash from the 'Blackfish' movie, including Willie Nelson, Barenaked Ladies, Cheap Trick, Trace Adkins and Martina McBride.

Of the originally announced acts, country singers Scotty McCreery and Justin Moore remained on board.

Kid Rock and Alan Jackson performed at the festival last weekend, sparking online petitions for the artists to cancel their appearances.
