Canadian Country Music Hall of Fame member Terri Clark made a special appearance on Entertainment Tonight Canada to announce the 2019 Country Thunder Saskatchewan headliners lineup. Watch here.
Headliners will include mega-star Chris Stapleton’s only Western Canadian performance in 2019 as well Tim McGraw, Jake Owen, and Canada’s biggest country artist Dallas Smith.
“Saskatchewan is home and this is the one we get most excited about,” says Country Thunder Music Festivals CEO, Troy Vollhoffer. “Chris Stapleton is the biggest artist in country music and fans here have been excited since we announced him at last year’s festival. The timing was right with both McGraw and Owen enjoying banner years, while Dallas Smith has grown into a superstar, first appearing in the Craven Valley in 2012. We couldn’t be more proud and excited of the line-up which has been put together for some of the greatest country music fans in the world.”
In addition to the big-four announced, Clark will also perform along with roots, country and Americana legend Steve Earle and the Dukes, the original line-up of Lonestar, 90s country star Travis Tritt, Gord Bamford, Shawn Austin, The Reklaws, Meghan Patrick, Madeline Merlo, The Road Hammers, JoJo Mason, Jimmie Allen and the return of Saskatchewan’s own Hunter Brothers complete what many are already calling the greatest lineup ever assembled in the Craven Valley. Given the area’s rich history, a bold statement, to be sure.
Stapleton is a five-time Grammy Award, and astonishing 17-time ACM and CMA winner. The Lexington, Kentucky native is truly a once-in-a-lifetime artist who transcends musical boundaries and genres. The much-anticipated Sunday closer has never played the Saskatchewan market before.
There have been very few country artists more consistent than McGraw over the past 25 years, and CT Nation is in for a treat when one of the genre’s most consummate performers takes the stage.
Recent hit singles, Neon Church and Thought About You are currently showcasing the country music legend at the peak of his considerable powers.
Jake Owen makes his long-awaited return to these parts on a hot streak which has included a whopping five hit singles from his No. 1 album, American Love. Think of how good I Was Jack (You Were Diane) and American Country Love Song are going to sound under the stars in the Craven Valley!
Smith continues to defy logic with each new release and he returns to Country Thunder Saskatchewan as not only a first-time headliner, but now as Canada’s most-played country radio artist ever. Think about that for a moment, if you will…
