Luke Bryan, Jason Aldean, Florida Georgia Line, Eric Church, Lady Antebellum, Hunter Hayes, Carrie Underwood, Jake Owen, and Dan + Shay are set to perform at the first-ever iHeartRadio Country Festival. The festival will take place in Austin, Texas on Saturday, March 29, 2014 and fans who can’t make it to see the Country music stars perform live will be able to listen to the concert on Clear Channel’s Country music radio stations or on iHeartRadio.com. Clear Channel also announced Bobby Bones has been tapped to host the festival.
“The response to our country performers at the last three iHeartRadio Music Festivals was so incredible we decided to create an entire show just for them,” stated John Sykes, President of Clear Channel Entertainment Enterprises. “It will be a country fan’s dream and a testament to the power of country music and recognition of the stature of these artists.”
“Country music is experiencing an unprecedented explosion of popularity with music fans across America, and there’s no better way to celebrate that than by building on the incredible success of our annual 2-day iHeartRadio Music Festival and creating the biggest dedicated multiplatform event ever featuring the biggest stars in Country music,” said Tom Poleman, President of National Programming Platforms for Clear Channel Media and Entertainment. “The core of our business is the bond our local stations have with our listeners and an important part of that is to give them extraordinary events no one else can provide. With the largest reach of any country music radio group, we’re thrilled to add this once-in-a-lifetime ‘all things Country’ mega festival to iHeartRadio’s exceptional lineup of can’t miss events.”
