Aldean, Lambert and The Band Perry will headline the KMLE Country Thunder Arizona, which takes place April 10-13 in Florence, Arizona (near Phoenix). Additional performers include Craig Morgan, Sawyer Brown, Mark Chesnutt, Joe Diffie and the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band. Radio.com New Music to Know artist Charlie Worsham will also hit the stage, as will Colt Ford and Will Hoge.
Aldean and Lambert are also two of the top-billed acts at Country Thunder Wisconsin, where they’ll be joined by third headliner Brantley Gilbert. That festival is set to take place July 24-27 in Twin Lakes, Wisconsin. Additional performers in Wisconsin include Gary Allan, Sawyer Brown, Morgan, Mark Chesnutt, Diffie, the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Worsham, Hoge, Colt Ford and Chad Brownlee.
Additional artists for each of the two festivals will be announced in the coming weeks. Four-day passes are currently available for each event at Country Thunder’s site. The festival also features food, shopping, thrill rides, camping, live DJs spinning country music and more.
Last year’s Country Thunder Arizona festival garnered the biggest attendance record in the Arizona festival’s 20-year history, thanks to big-name acts such as Lady Antebellum, Eric Church and Toby Keith.
