Following this April’s epic four-day bash in Florence, Country Thunder Arizona will return with a jam-packed, all-star lineup featuring Lainey Wilson, Eric Church, Jelly Roll, Koe Wetzel & so many more. The show returns next April 11th – 14th, 2024!
Multi-award winning singer songwriter and actress, Lainey Wilson, will be bringing the heat to Arizona as a headliner in 2024. As the leading female nominee and winner at the 2023 ACM awards with, Female Vocalist of the Year, Album of The Year, Visual Media and Musical Event of the Year, the newly-crowned CMA Entertainer and Female Vocalist of the Year has proved to be quite the “artist to watch.” After topping the country radio charts, Wilson scored her second No. 1 hit, “Never Say Never” with Cole Swindell and recently achieved her third and fourth No. 1 songs with “Heart Like a Truck” and her HARDY collaboration “wait in the truck”. Her current radio single “Watermelon Moonshine” just cracked the Top 5, making it her 5th song to do so, while becoming the fastest solo female song to reach the Top 10 since 2018. Wilson’s sophomore and critically-acclaimed album, Bell Bottom Country, was just named the CMA Album of the Year, and reached No. 15 on Billboard’s Top Albums Chart and No. 9 on Billboard’s Country Albums Chart, amassing over 650 million streams to date. She’s showing no sign of slowing down, and we can’t wait to celebrate all the further accolades and successes she’s sure to achieve leading up to her performance in April.
A seven-time ACM Award winner, four-time CMA Award winner (including the 2020 award for Entertainer of the Year) and 10-time GRAMMY nominee, Eric Church is sure to blow away the crowd when he returns to Country Thunder Arizona. In his established and honored career, Church has amassed a passionate fanbase around the globe known as the Church Choir as well as a critically acclaimed catalog of music. Church’s most recent critically acclaimed and chart-topping project Heart & Soul features the Double Platinum certified No. 1 “Hell of a View” and recent Top 5 hit “Heart On Fire”. The superstar boasts 30 Gold, Platinum and multi-Platinum certified singles that the crowd in Florence is sure to be singing along with at the top of their lungs.
Outright genre-bending singer/songwriter/rapper Jelly Roll has quietly been building a remarkable career, under the radar and on his own terms. Since his days selling his mixtapes out of his car, he has constantly been releasing new music (more than 24 albums), touring relentlessly, consistently topping various iTunes charts, engaging a rabid fanbase and creating videos that have amassed nearly 2 billion views on YouTube. He pairs deeply personal lyrics with music that blends Old-school Rap, Classic Rock, Country and Soul to create music that is therapeutic, raw and tackles the heaviness in life.
His 2020 single “Save Me” — a confessional, vulnerable expression of self-doubt set the stage for his new season of life and took him to new heights, with more than 141 million views on YouTube and Platinum certification from the RIAA. Born and raised in Nashville’s Antioch neighborhood, the former addict and drug dealer released his album Ballads of the Broken in 2021, ahead of his hometown show at the famous Ryman Auditorium, which sold out in under an hour. The introspective 10-track album shows Jelly Roll’s growth as an artist and man, drawing from his personal experiences to tell the story of a man who has been through the ringer and isn’t afraid to share his raw truth, featuring his multi-week No. 1 Rock hit “Dead Man Walking” and his No. 1 Country debut single “Son of a Sinner.” Now after a history-making “breakthrough year” (American Songwriter), having just sold-out Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena and released the riveting anthem “NEED A FAVOR” along with the soul-stirring ballad “she” from his highly anticipated forthcoming album, the reigning No. 1 of Billboard’s Emerging Artists chart for 20 weeks is well on his way to mainstream, multi-genre stardom. He was just named the New Artist of the Year by the Country Music Association, which was his first accolade from the CMA, but certainly won’t be his last.
The ultimate country rockstar Koe Wetzel is sure to shatter expectations and astonish the crowd next year! This one-of-a-kind performer is constantly bulldozing the boundaries between Nashville songcraft, rowdy Texas spirit, and rainswept Seattle hard rock. After moving 1 million units under the radar and popping off as one of the hottest live performers in the game, he welcomed everyone to the party on his 2022 full-length offering, Hell Paso [Columbia Records]. The Gold-selling singer, songwriter, guitarist, and producer shakes up the status quo and sticks to his guns with a sound steeped in country storytelling, yet spiked with grunge grit. He’s unapologetic, undeniable, and unlike anyone else you’ve ever heard. Without anything to prove and nothing to lose, he continues to kick ass on his own terms. Breaking through with a series of independent releases and tallying over 1.3 billion streams to date, he has impressively notched three RIAA Gold-certified singles, including “February 28, 2016,” “Something To Talk About,” and “Drunk Driving.” He leaves a trail of sold-out venues and screaming fans in his wake wherever he goes, and he will be cranking up the party to new levels for his fans in Arizona.
On top of the four all-star headliners, the Arizona festival will welcome Flatland Cavalry, Warren Zeiders, Randy Houser, Priscilla Block, Nate Smith, Stephen Wilson Jr., Diamond Rio, Avery Anna, Randall King, Dallas Smith, Jake Worthington, Halle Kearns, The Bellamy Brothers, Lauren Watkins, Alana Springsteen and even more to be announced in the weeks to come!
