Clear Channel Media and Entertainment announced today the first-ever iHeartRadio Country Festival. Country music's biggest superstars will hit the stage at the Frank Erwin Center in Austin, Texas on Saturday, March 29, to celebrate all things Country.

The lineup for the festival includes Luke Bryan, Jason Aldean, Florida Georgia Line, Eric Church, Lady Antebellum, Hunter Hayes, Carrie Underwood, Jake Owen and Dan + Shay, with more to be announced. The iHeartRadio Country Festival will be hosted by nationally-syndicated Country music personality Bobby Bones.

"The response to our country performers at the last three iHeartRadio Music Festivals was so incredible we decided to create an entire show just for them," said John Sykes, President of Clear Channel Entertainment Enterprises. "It will be a country fan's dream and a testament to the power of country music and recognition of the stature of these artists."

Clear Channel will launch a six weeklong nationwide promotion in advance of the event, beginning Monday, January 13, giving thousands of Country music fans nationwide the opportunity to win a trip to Austin, for a one-of-a-kind experience at the iHeartRadio Country Festival. The promotion will run across more than 120 Clear Channel Country radio stations as well as on iHeartRadio.

"The core of our business is the bond our local stations have with our listeners and an important part of that is to give them extraordinary events no one else can provide. With the largest reach of any country music radio group, we're thrilled to add this once-in-a-lifetime 'all things Country' mega festival to iHeartRadio's exceptional lineup of can't miss events."
