WUBE-FM (105.1), the Country Music Association's large market station of the year, continues its tradition of bringing young, up and coming talent to the Gold Star ChiliFest.

This year the Wilkinsons will headline the event, Oct. 10-11 along West Court Street, downtown. The family trio will perform Sunday on the B-105 Gold Star ChiliFest Free Country Music Stage.

Steve, Amanda (age 16) and Tyler (14) are the dad, daughter and son trio who've just landed their first No. 1 single with "26 Cents." It's from their first album, Nothing But Love.

  • What: 1998 Gold Star ChiliFest.
  • When: 11 a.m.-10 p.m. Oct. 10 and 11 a.m.-8 p.m. Oct. 11.
  • Where: West Court Street, downtown.
  • Admission: Free.
  • Here's the rest of the line-up.

    Saturday: Shane Stockton, Chad Brock and Brady Seals.

    Mr. Stockton, 23-year-old Nashville newcomer and Decca recording artist, will perform music from his debut album, Stories I Could Tell.

    New to Warner Brothers Records, Mr. Brock will sing his new single "Evangeline," a Cajun-flavored tune off his self-titled album. Hamilton native Mr. Seals will perform cuts from his recent album, Brady Seals, including the debut single "I Fell" and the traditional "Country As a Boy Can Be."

    Clint Daniels will kick off Sunday's acts. This 24-year-old newcomer recently debuted his self-titled album and will perform a single off of it, "A Fool's Progress."

    The Wilkinsons will wrap up Sunday's entertainment.

    The music will begin at noon both days with the B-105 Battle of the Bands winner Todd Henry and runner-up Quartermile.

    B-105's stage will have a new location this year: the corner of Court Street and Central Parkway, across from the Cincinnati Fire Museum.

    As in past years, the two-day event will serve up spicy food along with kids' events, chili-making competitions and fire safety demonstrations.
