Dierks Bentley, Shania Twain, Kenny Chesney to Headline Stagecoach 2017
The Stagecoach Country Music Festival has revealed its 2017 lineup, and perhaps the biggest "get" is Saturday night's headliner: Shania Twain.
Twain hit the road in 2015 for her Rock This Country Tour, which was billed as both her first trek in 11 years and her last one ever. Fortunately for her fans, Twain appears to be open to performing here and there, as she will on April 29, 2017, at Stagecoach. If they're lucky, fans may even get to hear the new music she's got in the works; Twain recently told The Boot that her long-awaited next album is coming soon — and will be “more diverse than any other album I’ve ever done.”
“There’s a lot of variety there,” Twain shares, “but what I’ve learned about myself is, as a songwriter of all the songs, the emotion and the voice ties it all together as one artist.”
In addition to Twain, Saturday's Stagecoach lineup includes Brett Eldredge, Kip Moore, Willie Nelson and Family, Maren Morris, Dan + Shay, Jamey Johnson and many more. On Friday (April 28), Dierks Bentley will headline the first day of Stagecoach 2017; the day will also include performances from Cole Swindell, Randy Houser, Jerry Lee Lewis, Jon Pardi, Maddie & Tae and more.
The 2017 Stagecoach Country Music Festival will end on Sunday (April 30) with sets by Thomas Rhett, Tyler Farr, Travis Tritt, Cyndi Lauper, Cam, Los Lobos and more. The day's headliner will be Kenny Chesney, who will be mostly taking 2017 off from the road.
"With the new music, I want the fans to digest it and let it seep into their lives a little bit," Chesney (who will also play Country Jam 2017) explains. "So, next year, we’ll do five or six shows — we don’t know how many yet — but other than that, we’ll let this new music find its way. Then, the next year, we’ll crank it up again."
Tickets for the 2017 Stagecoach Country Music Festival are set to go on sale on Friday (Nov. 18) at 11AM PT. More information about the festival is available on the event's official website.
