There's a new headliner for the first day of Chattanooga's Moon River Music Festival.

Needtobreathe, a Christian rock band from South Carolina, is set to replace folk band Caamp.

On Wednesday, Caamp announced on social media the band is canceling the rest of its scheduled performances this year, including its Saturday set at Moon River. The band cited health issues for the cancellation.
