COUNTRY THUNDER FLORIDA RETURNS with SUPERSTARS: MORGAN WALLEN, JASON ALDEAN, CHRIS YOUNG - AS HEADLINERS
Country Thunder Florida will return to Kissimmee with all-new fall dates in 2022.
Country music’s hottest new superstar joins one of the biggest-selling artists in country music history for a one-two festival punch like no other. Jason Aldean joins previously announced showstopper, Morgan Wallen, along with hit machine Chris Young for the Sunshine State’s hottest fall party of ‘22!
Country Thunder Florida has become the biggest country music event in Central Florida and we have these fans to thank,” says Country Thunder Music Festivals CEO,Troy Vollhoffer.“We had an amazing festival last fall with Eric Church, Dierks Bentley and Old Dominion. We knew we had to up the ante and deliver the biggest and best artist roster possible.
“This is the line-up those fans have asked for, and we’re thrilled to give it to them.
Let’s start with the biggest musical entity in the world right now, shall we?
Every once in a while an artist comes along who transcends the country music genre and, in fact, changes the entire game. Morgan Wallen is that artist right now, for the immediate future, and well beyond.
The numbers and the fan hysteria speak for itself.
With over seven billion (yes, you read that number correctly) on-demand streams, numerous multi-market, multi-platinum certifications and four consecutive chart-toppers, Wallen’s widely-praised sophomore effort ,Dangerous: The Double Album, reigned #1on the Billboard 200 Albums chart for a whopping 10 consecutive weeks upon its release.
The blockbuster remained in the top 10 for 33 weeks, plus earned the biggest streaming week for a Country album in music history. It includes another record-breaking achievement with one of Time magazine’s Top 10 Songs of 2020, “7 Summers,” and “Wasted On You” – both debuted at #1 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart and inside the Billboard Hot 100’s Top 10, not to mention the 4x platinum Diplo collaboration, “Heartless,” and another platinum chart-topper, “More Than My Hometown.”
His limited Fall headlining gigs in the U.S. sold between 30 and 50,000 tickets per venue in minutes, causing pandemonium in each market. Wallen’s headline performance at Country Thunder Bristol has been called the “Country Music Event Of The Year” in America for 2021.
CT Nation in Florida is in for a treat!
And the long-awaited return of Jason Aldean to OHP will be a welcome one.
One of the most sought-after headliners in country music today, Aldean has amassed a staggering resume since releasing his self-titled debut in 2005.
Nine best-selling albums (including four No. 1s), 35 top-10 singles, including a staggering 20 No. 1s, every industry award imaginable (and, frankly, too many to list here), to go along with a brand-new two-part album set, Macon, Georgia.
Part one (Macon) came out on November 12 and yielded the No.2 smash, “If I Didn’t Love You” – a stunning duet with Carrie Underwood. Part-two (Georgia) will be released in April 2022.
Expect yet another batch of hits by the time Aldean hits the stage and electrifies the CT Florida throng in Kissimmee!
For his part, Chris Young has enjoyed a banner year in 2021. His album, Famous Friends has already yielded four hit singles, including he No. 1 title track which was recorded with 2021 CT Iowa headliner, Kane Brown.
It was followed up with three more hits: Raised On Country, Drowning and the outstanding Mitchell Tenpenny duet ,At The End Of A Bar.
A consummate live performer and fan-favorite, any one of Young’s ten No. 1 hits from his eight best-selling albums, are sure to ignite the Country Thunder Florida faithful!
As if all that wasn’t enough, organizers also announced that red-hot Ashley McBryde as well as Chase Rice, Granger Smith, Clay Walker, Tracy Lawrence, Lindsay Ell, Kameron Marlowe, Laney Wilson, the James Barker Band, and many more will fill out this incredibly stacked lineup!
