4:30 – Tenille Townes has the kind of voice that will perfectly end out your day at the Chevy Breakout Stage! Have you checked out her single, “Somebody’s Daughter?”

Maui Jim Broadway Stage at Bridgestone Plaza

11:25 – A ton of our friends are going to be taking the Maui Jim Broadway Stage, and trust us when we say… these are the rising stars of country music! We highly suggest making time to see Hayley Orrantia, Stephanie Quayle, The Sisterhood Band, and Fairground Saints! 

Chevy Riverfront Stage – We’ve got a FULL schedule that you’re not gonna want to miss! 

10:45 am – We may be starting the party off earlier, but you’re definitely not going to want to miss a performance by Dylan Scott!

11:30 am – Make sure you’re staying hydrated out there, because Mitchell Tenpenny is sure to bring the HEAT!

1:00 pm – Lauren Alaina is going to let us know what it’s like to feel like “Ladies in the 90’s!”

1:45 pm – Jordan Davis has had an INCREDIBLE year, and missing his set at the Riverfront Stage will give you serious FOMO, “Take It From Me.”

2:30 pm – Got them “Whiskey Glasses” on yet? Just wait until you see Morgan Wallen! 

3:15 pm – Don’t suffer from a “Heartbreak!” Make sure you stick around for Hunter Hayes’ set!

4:00 pm – This is it…. Scotty McCreery is about to take your afternoon up a notch!
