The already-stacked iHeartCountry Festival lineup has added another superstar to the mix. Blake Shelton has officially signed on for this year’s edition of the popular bash, which will go down May 2 at the Frank Erwin Center in Austin.
Shelton will make his iHeart Country Festival debut alongside industry giants Lady Antebellum, Dierks Bentley, Sam Hunt, Kelsea Ballerini, Jon Pardi, Kane Brown, Chase Rice and Dustin Lynch. Hot Country Knights and radio host Bobby Bones will also appear at the seventh annual event.
“I’m excited to join my friends and fellow country artists for my first iHeartCountry Festival performance,” he told iHeartRadio in a statement. “It’s always a good time playing to Texas crowds and I’m looking forward to an evening of country music and maybe a little vodka to add to the party!”
The “God’s Country” hitmaker has a packed schedule for much of the year. He recently launched the latest leg of his Friends And Heroes Tour, which will run through the next month and feature support from the Bellamy Brothers, Trace Adkins, Lauren Alaina and John Anderson. Concurrently, he will mark his 18th season as a coach on The Voice alongside Kelly Clarkson, John Legend and Nick Jonas.
In addition to iHeartCountry, Shelton will perform at New Jersey’s Barefoot Country Music Festival, the Calgary Stampede and Cheyenne Frontier Days this summer. He was also recently announced as a headliner at Louisville’s Hometown Rising Festival alongside Carrie Underwood.
His upcoming ventures will see the Oklahoma native continue to support his latest project Fully Loaded: God’s Country. The album, which dropped late last year, features a mix of Shelton’s greatest hits and several new singles, including the No. 1 smash “God’s Country” and “Nobody But You” featuring his longtime girlfriend Gwen Stefani.
