iHeartMedia announced the return of the successful iHeartRadio Country Festival. This year, country music’s biggest superstars will hit the stage at the Frank Erwin Center in Austin, Texas on Saturday, May 2nd, in a live celebration of all things Country.

The country music of the iHeartRadio app will come to life onstage in Austin with an extraordinary lineup including Tim McGraw, Brantley Gilbert, Rascal Flatts and Brad Paisley, with more to be announced, and will be hosted by iHeartMedia’s nationally-syndicated Country music personality Bobby Bones. The iHeartRadio Country Festival is part of iHeartMedia’s roster of incredibly successful nationally-recognized concert events, including the iHeartRadio Music Festival, the iHeartRadio Ultimate Pool Party, the iHeartRadio Jingle Ball Concert Tour, the iHeartRadio Ultimate Valentine’s Escape and the iHeartRadio Fiesta Latina.

“This is truly a night of Country’s All-Stars,” said John Sykes, President of iHeartMedia Entertainment Enterprises. “Every single one of these artists can headline an arena or stadium on their own, but on this night they will share the stage to celebrate the amazing music on our iHeartRadio country stations and the iHeartRadio app.”

“The country format has great talent and on-air personalities who have such a strong bond and loyalty with their fans and there is no better way to celebrate that relationship than at a live event,” said Tom Poleman President of National Programming Platforms for iHeartMedia. “With our more than 120 country stations nationwide we have the ability to bring the biggest events and one-of-a-kind experiences to our loyal listeners that no one else can provide.”

Fans who cannot attend the iHeartRadio Country Festival will be able to listen live on iHeartMedia’s Country music radio stations in their local markets or on iHeartRadio.com. Streaming details will be announced soon.

Tickets go on sale to the general public on March 28. For more information visit iHeartRadio.com/countryfestival. The iHeartRadio Country Festival is an iHeartMedia Production.

Chase Bryant Joins Tim McGraw’s Shotgun Rider Tour

Chase Bryant

Chase Bryant is starting the New Year off with a bang. His debut single “Take It On Back” continues to climb the country radio charts while it was announced yesterday that the celebrated newcomer will join superstar Tim McGraw’s Shotgun Rider Tour 2015.

“New Year, New Dreams come true. It’s beyond an honor to be on tour with Tim McGraw. I could never put into words the gratitude of what this means to me. Thank you country radio and country fans for all the love they’ve shown my first single and to Tim for allowing me to be part of this ride with you,” says Bryant.

Bryant, who spent 2014 captivating audiences on Brantley Gilbert’s Let It Ride Tour, was recently heralded as a hot ‘Artist to Watch in 2015’ by The Huffington Post, Nashville Lifestyles, Roughstock, Country Music Is Love and has been named a “Next Big Thing 2015” star by MusicRow Magazine.

Known for his vocally charged and guitar-wielding live performances, Bryant has already earned rave reviews from the likes of Rolling Stone Country, Billboard, Teen Vogue, American Songwriter, People Country, Country Weekly, Bustle, Las Vegas Sun, The Fresno Bee, The Sacramento Bee and the San Diego Union Tribune.  Additionally, the fast-rising star recently graced the cover of the December 2014 issue of Southwest Texas Magazine.

Bryant demonstrates his unique method of musicianship this weekend when he takes CMT Hot 20 shopping at one of his favorite Nashville guitar shops, 2nd Gear Music.  Bryant discusses his attraction to the guitar at age three AND how the left-handed star taught himself to play a right-handed guitar backwards. CMT Hot 20 premieres this Saturday, January 17th at 9 am ET/ 8 am CT.

“Take It On Back” appears on Bryant’s debut EP, which he co-produced alongside Derek George (Randy Houser). Bryant co-wrote each song on the EP, which also includes the emotionally charged fan favorites “Change Your Name,” “Jet Black Pontiac” and “Little Bit of You.”

Tim McGraw and Faith Hill Sell Nashville Farmland

Tim McGraw and Faith Hill

Tim McGraw and Faith Hill have sold 131 acres of their 750-acre farm in Leiper’s Fork, Tennessee, for $3 million, the Tennessean reported Friday.

The new owners, Brian and Carin Terp of Houston, plan to build a home on the land.

The remaining 621 acres are available for $18.5 million, or as separate 353-acre and 268-acre tracts for $10 million and $8.5 million, respectively, realtor Steve Fridrich told the newspaper. The 353-acre track includes a log home, 12-stall barn and caretaker residence.  The 268 acres includes an antebellum home.

Tim and Faith purchased all 750 acres 13 years ago for $13.75 million and used the farm as a second home before putting it up for sale last year, according to The Tennessean.

Fridrich noted that while “the owners would’ve liked to sell it as one…the demand seems to be stronger from something smaller than 750 acres.”
