Brad Paisley, Dierks Bentley and Brantley Gilbert will headline Taste of Country music festival next June
Love it or hate it, outside of Garth Brooks, country music doesn't like to keep its fans in suspense. We love it, because that means we get plenty of time to decide whether we'll be going to the festivals, as we know who'll be headlining far before tickets are sold out. Taste of Country announced its headliners on Wednesday for the June festival.
Brad Paisley, Dierks Bentley and Brantley Gilbert will headline the festival, which takes place June 13-15 in Hunter Mountain, NY. Paisley had previously been announced, but Bentley and Gilbert's names were dropped Wednesday morning. Tickets go on sale Nov. 8, but if you know the right people, you can get presale orders in as soon as Halloween. Our pals at TheBoot.com revealed a passcode to sue if you want to get an early seat: Hunter14 (case sensitive).
Paisely and Bentley are familiar to most listeners by now, but it's been a while since we've heard anything thing from Gilbert. The countryman has released two LP's, the latter of which peaked at no. 4 on the Billboard 200 when it dropped during 2010. The songwriter announced during March of 2013 that he would be releasing a new album, "probably" during late 2013 but we haven't gotten word of an official release date yet. Either way, expect some new music during his June appearance.
Last year was the first for Taste of Country, and the headliners give this year's a run for their (and our) money: Willie Nelson, Trace Adkins and Lady Antebellum. Still, we've yet to see who else will be playing throughout the weekend this year.
