– The iHeartRadio Country Festival is coming back to Austin this spring with Tim McGraw and Brad Paisley aboard.
The festival, coming May 2 at the Frank Erwin Center, also will feature Brantley Gilbert and Rascal Flatts and Brad Paisley with more to be announced. iHeartMedia's nationally-syndicated country music personality Bobby Bones will host the event.
"This is truly a night of Country's All-Stars" said John Sykes, president of iHeartMedia Entertainment Enterprises. "Every single one of these artists can headline an arena or stadium on their own, but on this night they will share the stage to celebrate the amazing music on our iHeartRadio country stations and the iHeartRadio app."
"The country format has great talent and on-air personalities who have such a strong bond and loyalty with their fans and there is no better way to celebrate that relationship than at a live event." said Tom Poleman, President of National Programming Platforms for iHeartMedia. "With our more than 120 country stations nationwide, we have the ability to bring the biggest events and one-of-a-kind experiences to our loyal listeners that no one else can provide."
The show will be broadcast live on iHeartMedia's country music radio stations in their local markets or on iHeartRadio.com. Tickets go on sale to the general public on March 28.
Last year's festival drew Luke Bryan, Lady Antebellum and Jason Aldean.
