By Mona Khalifeh
Stagecoach has announced its 2022 lineup and it includes some of the biggest names in country music. Carrie Underwood, Thomas Rhett and Luke Combs are just some of the stars heading out to the California desert next April. Maren Morris, Midland, Brothers Osborne, Lee Brice, The Black Crowes and Cody Johnson will also be performing when the music festival returns from April 29 to May 1, after organizer Goldenvoice, cancelled the event in 2020 and 2021. The announcement comes just days ahead of ticket sales for the festival, which kick off this Friday.
In a statement released along with the 2022 lineup, Underwood, Rhett and Combs shared their excitement about headlining the Stagecoach country music festival.
Underwood said that "there's nothing like a Stagecoach audience," adding that after concert cancellations and postponements due to the pandemic, she can't wait to get back there and perform for her fans.
"There’s nothing like a Stagecoach audience, and I can’t wait to take that stage and be with the fans in the desert again," the country music singer said in the statement.
Rhett could hardly contain his excitement for the upcoming festival, noting that he's dreamt of headlining Stagecoach since first playing there in 2014.
"I have been looking forward to this for so long! I dreamed about headlining Stagecoach ever since I first played there in 2014. I cannot wait to get back out in the desert in 2022 and play for those fans," Rhett added.
Rhett also took to social media to share the news, saying that he's been "waiting way too long" to make the big announcement.
"Been waiting for this announcement for WAY too long. @stagecoach is back in 2022 and we will see y’all there! Tickets on sale this Friday at 10am PT at StagecoachFestival.com 🌵," he shared.
"We are so excited to be adding Stagecoach, Country music's biggest festival weekend, into our live stream lineup for the first time ever," says YouTube’s Head of Live Music and West Coast Artist Relations Ali Rivera. "2022 marks our 10th year partnering with Goldenvoice to stream some of their most coveted music festivals like Stagecoach and Coachella. We are both honored and proud to be bringing three consecutive weekends of extraordinary live music to fans around the world next year."
