Founded in 2007, the Stagecoach Country Music Festival quickly became one of the premier country music festivals in the nation. Held each year in Indio, Calif., (the same location as the massive Coachella Festival) Stagecoach continually blends all manner of country musicians—old and new, mainstream and independent—into three action-packed days. In the past, fans have made the pilgrimage to see stars like George Strait, Kenny Chesney, and Blake Shelton all featured on one amazing schedule.
The 2014 installment of Stagecoach, scheduled for April 25-27, promises to deliver yet another fantastic collection of musicians. Eric Church will head up the Friday night lineup, which also includes artists like Loretta Lynn, Brantley Gilbert, and The Wailin’ Jennys, while on Saturday, Jason Aldean will be the main performer with support from rising acts like Hunter Hayes and Pistol Annies member, Ashley Monroe. The final night will close with a performance by Luke Bryan following sets from Florida Georgia Line and Michael Nesmith.
See the full lineup in the photo below, and remember you can purchase either single- or three-day Stagecoach tickets in the Vivid Seats marketplace.

Tim McGraw, Alan Jackson to Headline San Antonio Rodeo 2014
As one of the largest rodeos in the U.S., the San Antonio Stock Show and Rodeo provides a wealth of entertainment each year—from petting zoos and pony rides to cook-offs and fashion shows. This year, the 2014 edition will be held from Feb. 6-23 at the AT&T Center, and will continue the tradition of featuring high-caliber concerts from country music legends.
As of Oct. 29, only a couple of performers have been revealed as entertainment for the coming year, but the early schedule already features two heavyweights in Tim McGraw and Alan Jackson. On Feb. 8, McGraw will deliver twice the excitement with a pair of concerts. The “Highway Don’t Care” singer is in the middle of Soul2Soul—his Las Vegas residency with wife Faith Hill—but he’ll take time out from the busy schedule to present both an afternoon and evening performance on that Saturday. Jackson will follow up with a Monday evening performance on Feb. 10. This will mark Jackson’s 16th performance at the San Antonio Rodeo.
More Announcements to Come for 2014 Country Music Festivals
As the end of 2013 nears, more country music festivals will begin unveiling 2014 music rosters. Country Thunder is expected to reveal its 2014 performers at the end of November, and the ever-popular Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo will be announcing its entertainment lineup in January. The Houston Rodeo also will take place a bit later than in years past, as the 2014 multi-week production is scheduled for March 4-23 at Reliant Park.
