It has been an exciting couple weeks for country music fans, as many festivals have already begun revealing what’s in store for 2014. On the heels of big announcements regarding February’s San Antonio Rodeo and April’s Stagecoach Country Music Festival came word of the star-studded lineup comprising May’s Bayou Country Superfest.
Since debuting in 2010, the festival, held at LSU’s Tiger Stadium in Baton Rouge, has had no problem attracting some of country music’s finest acts, but the combination of artists confirmed for the 2014 bill are some of the biggest yet, requiring an extra day to accommodate all the scheduled performers.
George Strait, Luke Bryan, Jason Aldean Named Headliners
The reigning “King of Country” himself, George Strait, has been tabbed as the first headliner for the now three-day event that will run from May 23-25. Joining Strait on Friday will be fellow industry icon, Reba McEntire, as well as 2006 “Nashville Star” winner, Chris Young.
After the bonus day of music, 10 more musicians will still be in store for the rest of the weekend. Luke Bryan, who has enjoyed arguably his biggest year yet in 2013, will be on hand to pace the Saturday bill, with support from Florida Georgia Line, Lee Brice, Easton Corbin, and Gloriana. Lastly, to close out the weekend, Jason Aldean will take the stage May 25 on a day that also will include performances by Eric Church, Hunter Hayes, Big & Rich, and Joe Nichols.
History of Showcasing Top Country Acts
The 2014 edition will mark return appearances for past participants like Aldean, Bryan, Nichols, Church, and Gloriana, while the overall Bayou Country Superfest résumé boasts many of the genre’s biggest stars like Taylor Swift, Kenny Chesney, Zac Brown Band, Carrie Underwood, Lady Antebellum, Miranda Lambert, Darius Rucker, Rascal Flatts, Dierks Bentley, Tim McGraw, Brooks & Dunn, and Keith Urban, who was kind enough to give fans a sneak peek behind the scenes via the video below.
