For all you Country music fans out there, iHeartMedia has officially announced the return of the popular iHeartCountry Festival via AT&T. May 5 will mark the fifth year of one of the biggest celebrations of country music, and some of the biggest names in the genre will perform at the Frank Erwin Center in Austin, Texas.  

The extraordinary line-up includes bigwigs such as Luke Bryan, Keith Urban, Dustin Lynch, Cole Swindell, Maren Morris, Sugarland, Luke Combs, Billy Currington, Dan + Shay, Jon Pardi and Brett Young. But that is not all. More performers will be announced soon. As an icing on the Country cake, iHeartMedia is bringing back Bobby Bones, one of their most popular air personalities as the official host for the evening.   

After all, the night is supposed to be great for all lovers of Country music, and that includes both the audience and the performers. As Tom Poleman, Chief Programming Officer for iHeartMedia, puts it, “The iHeartCountry Festival is known for connecting our listeners to the biggest names in country music and this year is no exception. It’s a must-attend night not only for fans, but for the artists as well." 

Digital Journal further quotes Poleman as comparing the starry night to a family reunion. "The vibe back stage is like a family reunion, where the superstars get to reconnect and hang out. It’s truly a one-of-a-kind iHeart event.”   

John Sykes, President of Entertainment Enterprises for iHeartMedia, echoed the same sentiments when he said, "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. Everyone stays to support each other until the last band has walked off stage.”

Fans of Country music certainy seem to dig the new line-up:
