Carrie Underwood, Eric Church, Thomas Rhett Set to Headline Stagecoach 2020
Get ready to kick the dust up one more time, the lineup for Stagecoach has officially been announced and it's EVERYTHING! Back for their 14th year, the 3-day festival will take over the Empire Polo Fields in Indio, CA Friday, April 24 through Sunday, April 26, 2020.
“Headlining Stagecoach has always been on my bucket list. Can’t wait to see y’all in April,” Multi-platinum selling entertainer and Friday night headliner Thomas Rhett exclaimed. Both Carrie Underwood and Eric Church are Stagecoach veterans, however, they know how to put on one hell of a performance so it's fitting they will headline Saturday and Sunday, respectfully!
“Shattering our all-time attendance record in 2019 only made our team work harder and dive deeper to deliver more to our fans this year,” says festival Talent Buyer Stacy Vee. “The Stagecoach 2020 lineup is all about high energy and getting every type of country music fan fired up. On top of this crazy lineup, Guy Fieri is back, Diplo is back, and we have much more in store that is absolutely going to blow minds!”
The 3-day event will also feature performances by Brett Young, Dan + Shay, Alan Jackson, Dustin Lynch, Midland, Jon Pardi, ZZ Top, Morgan Wallen and more (lineup as of October 15 is below).
If you're wondering if any of the Bachelor in Paradise folks will be in attendance - they most likely will! Although contestant Blake Horstmann found himself in quite the predicament (a love-triangle-pentagon type of situation) but that won't stop the franchise from being invited. It is one big party after all!
“As it turns out, what happens at Stagecoach doesn’t always stay at Stagecoach! We are sorry to hear about the heap of trouble Blake has gotten himself into,” jokes Vee in a statement. “Hopefully he can work it out and come and see us again this year — we loved seeing the gang at the show!”
You'll have to stay tuned to see which one of your favorite from the hit TV show will be in attendance. I mean, before it airs on the next season of Bachelor in Paradise!
“I hope that this is not the end of my story and I can look back at this summer and be grateful for the lessons learned and the friends made,” Horstmann wrote on Instagram in September after the debacle. “I’m still going to Stagecoach.”
Fan-favorite Guy Fieri’s Stagecoach Smokehouse is back again for its third year in a row to reveal new chefs, pit bosses and BBQ vendors. Guy and friends will be showcasing their pits and rigs and offering taste tests to fans throughout the weekend with live demos. Stay tuned for the full food lineup.
“I’m stoked to be firing up my Stagecoach Smokehouse again this year where we’ll be cookin’ up some bad ass bar-b-que,” says Guy Fieri. “So, ride on down to Flavortown and hang out with me, my buddies and some real deal pit masters from around the country."
Returning to the festival this year is the SiriusXM Spotlight Stage, which will once again highlight today’s rising stars like Hardy, Caylee Hammack and Gabby Barrett and others. The Honkytonk Dance Hall also makes a comeback in addition to High Class Hillbilly owner and singer Nikki Lane’s Stage Stop Marketplace.
Once again Goldenvoice promises to have invited all of the favorites to keep attendees' heart racing and your boots stomping. Mission accomplished! Stay tuned for updates!
