There is no question that country music is bigger than ever after 2013, and in 2014 it will surely only get bigger. iHeartRadio is certainly aware of the high demand for country music as they are ready to launch their first-ever iHeartRadio Country Festival. The festival is scheduled for March 29th at the Frank Erwin Center in Austin, TX.
Some of country music’s finest are set to perform, including: Luke Bryan, Jason Aldean, Eric Church, Carrie Underwood, Lady Antebellum, Florida Georgia Line, Jake Owen, Hunter Hays, and Dan + Shay with more to be announced at a later date. Wow! What a lineup! The festival will be hosted by the biggest DJ in country music radio, Bobby Bones (“The Bobby Bones Show“).
Clear Channel will launch a six weeklong nationwide promotion in advance of the event, beginning Monday, January 13th, giving country music fans nationwide the opportunity to win a trip to Austin. The promotion will run across more than 120 Clear Channel Country radio stations as well as on iHeartRadio.
“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,” said Clear Channel Entertainment Enterprises Pres. John Sykes. “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.”
Sounds like we won’t want to miss this! Tickets to the event will go on sale to the general public on January 18, at 12PM ET. For more info go to iHeartRadio.com/countryfestival.
