Then on Sunday Luke Bryan and the Florida Georgia Line end the festival. Music is played on all three stages all weekend for fans to appreciate.

While cowboy hats and belt buckles are essential for this big shindig, there is the wind to worry about this year on the first day. Strong gusts have a high wind warning in place as the gusts could be possible. A warning means wind gusts of 58 mph or greater are likely in the area.

Some fans have to work on Friday and won’t get to the festival until the weekend. Don't worry as fans can tune in to AXS TV to see all the greatest acts at home. The network is offering coverage of the event so all the greatest music can be seen without the long drive.
