The announcement of this event line-up is almost like waiting for the joys of the upcoming Holidays. For the past five years the Stagecoach Music Festival held in Indio, CA at the Empire Polo Field has hosted some big name acts such as Kenny Chesney, Brooks & Dunn, Toby Keith, Trace Adkins, Reba, & The Judds to name a few. So after the "BIG" line up news today, either announced on local radio stations or learning of it on the website, the phone lines, internet, (Twitter & Facebook) & of course texting were all jammed with people sharing the news and making plans. Some hotels were already sold out today, and some do not have many rooms left. So to say this event is popular is an understatement.

With the stellar line up which includes names like: Brad Paisley, Jason Aldean, Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton, Alabama , Martina McBride, Kenny Rogers, Luke Bryan, Sara Evans, and more the third day was a must to get it all in.
