To all the locals and out of towners that are attending Stagecoach Festival this weekend, consider yourself lucky that you got tickets as they sold out early this year.

For those that need to know what you can take in and not take in and any other general info go to: for all you need to know to make your festival experience a good one. They also have all the time lineups listed so you know exactly what time your favorite artists are performing and on what stage.

Please indulge me as I make a few recommendations of the artists to check out while you’re there, aside from the headliners Eric Church, Miranda Lambert and Morgan Wallen.


Even if you’re not a big country fan everyone has to have heard of Jelly Roll by now. He will be performing on Friday night and could easily be the headliner himself with hits like “Son of a Sinner”, “Save Me” and “Need a Favor”. You can always go to YouTube and check out these videos and more.

Hardy is a must see for sure. He puts on an amazing live show and currently has several hits like “Truck Bed”, “Sold Out”, “Jack” “Wait in the Truck” and the in your face “Radio Song”. Hardy mixes down home country and straight up rock fluidly. I love it when people write their own songs. He’s even written hits for others. He easily could have been a headliner as well.

Bailey Zimmerman is a powerhouse performer and songwriter as well. His latest single/video for “Where It Ends” is an energetic country rock song. He also has hits like “Religiously”, “Fall in Love” and “Rock and a Hard Place”.

Megan Moroney is another of my favorites with hit songs like “Tennessee Orange”, “No Caller ID”, “I’m Not Pretty” and her duet with Old Dominion “Can’t Break Up Now”.

Ashley Cooke is an up and comer with the hit song “Your Place”.

Other recommendations with their day, time and stage are included here:

Jelly Roll/Main Stage/Friday 8:10-9:00pm

Hardy/Main Stage/ Sunday/8:10-9:00pm

Bailey Zimmerman/Main Stage/Sunday 6:50-7:35

Megan Moroney/Main Stage/Sunday 5:30-6:10pm

Tenille Towns/****/Saturday 3:05-3:40

Nickelback/Palomino Stage/Friday 11:10-11:55

Post Malone/Main Stage/Saturday 8:15-9:00pm

The War and Treaty/Bud Light Backyard Stage/ 6:10-6:40pm

I’m hoping that Nickelback will join Hardy on his song “Rockstar” and if a girl can dream….that Lainey Wilson might show up to duet with Jelly Roll on “Save Me” and Hardy on “Wait in the Truck”. .

Have fun and stay safe!
