This year’s iHeartCountry Festival, which was originally slated for May 2 in Austin, Texas, before it was postponed, will be held as a virtual streaming and on-air radio special on Oct. 23 beginning at 7 p.m. CT.
Dierks Bentley, Lady A, Sam Hunt, Kane Brown, Kelsea Ballerini, Dustin Lynch, Jon Pardi, Riley Green, Morgan Evans, and Gabby Barrett are among the performers, with a guest appearance by Bobby Bones. The festival, presented by Capital One, will be recorded live on one stage in Nashville and will stream exclusively on livexlive.com and broadcast live across iHeartMedia’s more than 150 country music radio stations in local markets and at iHeartRadio.com.
“Despite this year’s pandemic, we are honored to still be able to host one of country music’s most anticipated nights with an iconic lineup of the genre’s biggest artists,” said Rod Phillips, Executive Vice President of Programming for iHeartCountry. “Although fans won’t be able to celebrate in person, the show will be available to our millions of listeners across our iHeartCountry stations nationwide and through the exclusive stream on LiveXLive.”
Other festival partners include Country Crock, Jane, Progressive Insurance, Tito’s Handmade Vodka and St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital as the exclusive charity partner.
