When it first started, Stagecoach was simply known as the "Country Coachella." Slowly but surely it's gained an identity of its own. Whether or not you dig country, you must at least tip your hat to Goldenvoice for diversification. The 2010 edition of Stagecoach may be more than 6 months away (April 24th and 25th), but it's never too early to start selling tickets. Thus, the Stagecoach 2010 lineup has been announced. Now if only GV could give us the juicy Coachella info this far in advance.
Stagecoach 2010 Lineup
Headliners: Keith vs. Keith
It'll be an epic 15-round bout of Keiths at Toby Keith and Keith Urban duke it out.
Second Tier Duos: Sugarland and Brooks & Dunn
The Rest: Phil Vasaar, Merle Haggard, The Oak Ridge Boys, Ray Price, Jamey Johnson, The Avett Brothers, Carlene Carter, Bobby Bare, Joey & Rory and many more.
Best bets to play both Coachella and Stagecoach: Every year at least one act plays both festivals. Looking over this preliminary lineup, I put my money down on Merle Haggard and the Avett Brothers.
Where: The Empire Polo Field in Indio, CA.
When: April 24th and 25th
