Luke Bryan, Jason Aldean and George Strait to headline the Bayou Superfest; Eric Church, Reba McIntire, Florida Georgia Line will also appear
Another day, another lineup for another 2014 country music festival: The list of performers for the fifth annual Bayou Country Superfest was released Wednesday night, and they ain't messing around. The festival-- which takes place the weekend of May 23, 24 and 25 in Baton Rouge, LA-has a number of acts opening that would easily be headliners at lesser festivals. Check it out:
If your parents aren't into the current directions country music is heading, Friday night might be best for them, as George Strait will headline and Reba McIntire will open. Strait's performance might also make Friday the must-see night because the iconic performer announced earlier this year that his current tour will be his last one. So see him now or forever hold your peace. Chris Young will also perform.
Discounting Taylor Swift, as she's kind of gone a bit pop, Saturday night will feature performances by the biggest name in country music: Luke Bryan. The vocalist has been on a touring rampage throughout the year, and his Crash My Party has gone platinum. Prior to Bryan, Florida Georgia Line will perform, and they're not too far from the top of the genre's sales charts either. Lee Brice, Easton Corbin and Gloriana will also perform.
The end of the weekend is lacking for star power either. Jason Aldean, the headliner, and Eric Church, his opener, are perhaps a bit edgier than the rest of the acts featured on the festival's lineup but they also have nearly as many fans as Bryan. Hunter Hayes, the act prior to Church, is also a rising star in the country genre. Big & Rich and Joe Nichols will also perform.
