This year's Ruckus will feature headlining performances by country singers Chris Cagle, Justin Moore, and Rodney Atkins. Cagle (featured video) will headline Thursday night. The Louisiana singer has piled up two gold albums, four Top 10 Country albums (including two #1's), and five Top 10 Country singles, including the 2001 #1 smash "I Breathe In, I Breathe Out". Cagle released his latest album, the greatest hits collection Icon, in March of last year.

Day 2 headliner Justin Moore (pictured) won the 2014 Academy of Country Music Award for the "Best New Artist". The 30-year-old Arkansas native has two #1 Country albums, two gold albums, and six Top 10 Country singles, including the #1 hits "Small Town USA" and "If Heaven Wasn't So Far Away". Moore released his latest album, Off the Beaten Path, last September.

Capping off the festival on Saturday night will be Rodney Atkins (featured slideshow). The Tennessee native has racked up six #1 Country singles, all six of which have been certified gold or platinum. Atkins has won an ACM Award for "Top New Male Vocalist", and he has been nominated for five more ACM Awards and two CMA Awards. Atkins released a new single entitled "Doin' It Right" last September. The single was the first from Atkins' fifth album, which still does not have a title or a release date.
