“What makes this Festival special is that it is the one night the A-list of Country Music comes together to perform live, collaborate with friends and spend time together as a family,” stated John Sykes, President of Entertainment Enterprises for iHeartMedia. “Everyone stays to support each other until the last band has walked off stage.”
“The iHeartCountry Festival is known for connecting our listeners to the biggest names in country music and this year is no exception,” said Tom Poleman, Chief Programming Officer for iHeartMedia. “It’s a must-attend night not only for fans, but for the artists as well.
