If you needed any more proof that country music is the most popular genre in America right now, this is it. The second annual iHeart Radio Country Festival has revealed it’s lineup and it’s plans for multi-channel broadcasting. The event which will be hosted by radio personality Bobby Bones is set for May 2 at the Frank Erwin Center on the campus of UT-Austin.
New York City will get it’s own country music festival for the first time in 2015. The festival being dubbed as Farmborough will span three days, June 26 through 28 on Randalls Island. The festival will be headlined by three of country music’s biggest stars, Dierks Bentley Luke Bryan and Brad Paisley. The decision for a country fest in NYC has been coming over the past few years as the genre continues to get more popular. Recently Madison Square Garden has hosted sold out shows from Eric Church, Blake Shelton, and Luke Bryan. Tickets for the three day event will be sold in passes. A pass will get ticketholders into all three days of the event and go on sale on November 6th for $225.
After nearly a month of Brad Paisley “Leaking Moonshine,” the wait is finally over. You can go and get yourself a full trunk of Moonshine wherever music is sold. The fifteen song LP is Paisley’s best work in years. Witty lyrics, catchy choruses, and Paisley’s patented guitar solos make ‘Moonshine in the Trunk’ the best country album of the summer.
