A partial list of headline musical acts has been announced Thursday for the 2013 Florida Strawberry Festival.

Blake Shelton, Trace Adkins and Foreigner are part of the 11 acts booked to play at the Plant City festival. The announcement came Thursday morning on the Florida Strawberry Festival Facebook page.

Shelton has become one of the most popular country music artists in the last few years as a judge on the hit NBC musical talent show "The Voice." Earlier this month, Shelton was named Entertainer of the Year, Male Vocalist of the Year and won Song of the Year with "Over You" at the Country Music Awards.

The remaining music entertainment lineup will be announced next week.

All headline concerts will be performed on the Wish Farms Soundstage. The Florida Strawberry Festival will be February 28 through March 10. Tickets will go on sale Dec. 3 at 8 a.m.
