Country Thunder Announces Big Names for 2016 Lineup

Country Thunder

After earning the 2015 “Festival Of The Year” Award from the Academy of Country Music, fans may be wondering what Country Thunder Wisconsin could possibly do for an encore, and they have fired back with a top-notch line-up!

CT Nation is going to cruise like never before and it all happens July 21-24, 2016 within the stunning natural beauty of Twin Lakes, WI.

Joining previously announced country rebel megastar Eric Church, will be Country Music’s hottest and most consistent duo of the past decade, Florida Georgia Line, to close out Friday night, hit-maker Chris Young as Thursday night’s headliner, and the energetic and always entertaining country heartthrob, Jake Owen bringing the “real life” on Saturday.

Country Thunder strives to always bring the biggest names to CT Nation,” said Kim Blevins, Director of Marketing. “But we also want to bring music fans the best festival experience by presenting a combination of hot, up-and-coming chart climbers, veteran artists and buzz-worthy new signings.”

Multi-faceted hit-maker Thomas Rhett is set to take the stage on Sunday and his string of No. 1s make the 25-year-old Georgia native a perfect fit for the high-energy party atmosphere in Wisconsin. Rhett reached country superstar status early in 2015 with mega-smash, Tangled Up.

Going on just ahead of Florida Georgia Line on Friday night will be veteran North Carolina country quartet, Parmalee. After five albums and over a decade of hard touring, the group broke into the top-10 U.S. country charts with “Feels Like Carolina” in 2013. For others basking in the Country Thunder glow of Twin Lakes, the upward trajectory has been much quicker, but no less rewarding.

Riding the wave of their monster hit single, “Smoke,” Nashville-based, Southern Rock-influenced band, A Thousand Horses, is one of the most in-demand touring acts of the past year – and we’ve got ‘em on Sunday night!

Speaking of smokin’ . . . the future of country music will be on full display Country Thunder Wisconsin-style with young guns Chris Janson, Dallas Smith, Chase Bryant, and David Ray.

While each is a highly-anticipated addition to this year’s edition of Country Thunder Wisconsin, Janson, in particular, is riding high on the runaway success of the title cut of Buy Me A Boat, and the infectious party vibe of singlePower Of Positive Drinkin’.”

Round it out with acts such as The Bellamy Brothers, Terri Clark, Joe Diffie, Courtney Cole, The Cadillac Three, Ryan Hurd, Tucker Beathard and more, and you have a Country Thunder Music Festival experience like no other.

Currently, tickets and camping are available for the country music event of the year and can be purchased online at or by phone at 1-866-802-6418.
