Country music has been so popular at the iHeart Radio Music Festival that in 2014, country fans will get their own iHeartRadio Country Festival.

Though each year, thousands flock to the iHeartRadio Music Festival to see an amazing lineup of musicians from all genres, country music has become increasingly popular. With past artists such as Tim McGraw, Rascal Flatts, Taylor Swift, Keith Urban, Kenny Chesney, and Brad Paisley drawing such big crowds, Clear Channel Media and Entertainment has seen the potential of an all-country festival.

The first iHeartRadio Country Festival will take place at the Erwin Center on the University of Texas campus in Austin, Texas on March 29. Performers for the inaugural show will be Carrie Underwood, Lady Antebellum, Luke Bryan, Eric Church, Jason Aldean, Hunter Hayes, Jake Owen and Florida Georgia Line. Country radio host Bobby Bones will emcee the event.

Fans can try to win tickets to the festival on one of Clear Channel’s country stations nationwide, or purchase tickets beginning Saturday, January 18 at 11:00 a.m. Central via Texasboxoffice.com or by calling 512-477-6060 or 800-982-2386.

The iHeartRadio Country Festival will also be streamed via Clear Channel’s station websites.
