Fans scooped up tickets at a feverish pace when Morgan Wallen was announced as the first CT Wisconsin headliner last month. But fans knew there was even more to come.
“It’s always our intention to top ourselves, year-in and year-out,” says Country Thunder Music Festivals CEO, Troy Vollhoffer. “2021 was certainly filled with sun, fun and some unforgettable performances.
“As far as the 2022 artist roster is concerned, the fans have spoken and we’ve listened. We are absolutely thrilled to be able to present this lineup for some of the best country music fans that you’ll find anywhere.”
Certainly, the numbers and the fan hysteria surrounding Wallen continue to speak volumes.
His limited Fall headlining gigs in the U.S. sold between 30 and 50,000 tickets per venue in minutes, causing pandemonium in each market. Wallen’s headline performance at Country Thunder Bristol has been called the “Country Music Event Of The Year” in America for 2021.
All of this following, Wallen’s widely-praised sophomore effort, Dangerous: The Double Album, which reigned #1 on the Billboard 200 Albums chart for a whopping 10 consecutive weeks upon its release. This is a performance not to be missed!
And the long-awaited return of FGL to Wisconsin will be a welcome one.
In just over a decade, singer-songwriters Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley have amassed 13 No. 1 hit singles over five albums (four of which went straight to No. 1) and, literally, every music industry award imaginable (33 and counting).
The streak continued with the 2021 release of Life Rolls On, and the hit singles “Long Live” and “I Love My Country.”
Chris Young also enjoyed a banner year in 2021. His album, Famous Friends has already yielded four hit singles, including the No. 1 title track which was recorded with 2021 CT Wisconsin headliner, Kane Brown.
It was followed up with three more hits: “Raised On Country”, “Drowning” and the outstanding Mitchell Tenpenny duet, “At The End Of A Bar.”
A consummate live performer and fan-favorite, any one of Young’s ten No. 1 hits from his eight best-selling albums, are sure to ignite the Country Thunder Wisconsin faithful!
Hot on the heels of a pair of recent No. 1 hits, Lee Brice has become one of country music’s most in-demand superstars. The runaway success of “One Of Them Girls” and “I Hope You’re Happy Now” (a duet with CMA Female Vocalist Of The Year, Carly Pearce) has only added to the excitement of Wisconsin’s blockbuster weekend.
Last year’s Top-10 Hey World album followed-up Brice’s 2017 self-titled smash, which also featured the No. 1 hit, “Rumor.”
The always outstanding supporting cast will include HARDY, Chris Janson, Chase Rice, Granger Smith, Lindsay Ell, Blanco Brown, The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Sawyer Brown, Kameron Marlowe, Elvie Shane and the James Barker Band, with many more still to be announced.
The countdown is on, Wisconsin . . . we can’t wait to see you in July!
