Some of the biggest names in country music will come together starting this May to represent the 2016 Country Megaticket Tour, a massive summer run that will feature artists like Brad Paisley, Miranda Lambert, Luke Bryan, Brantley Gilbert, Darius Rucker, Dierks Bentley, Florida Georgia Line and Keith Urban throughout a series of dates at various locations around the U.S. A ticket to Country Megaticket is the real deal for country music fans, as one ticket is good for each of the concerts in the series throughout the summer. For such an epic package, it should come as no surprise that tickets are booming on the resale market.
