Gary Allan to Headline Country Throwdown Tour
Justin Moore, Sunny Sweeney, Rodney Atkins, Josh Thompson and others will perform.
Gary Allan, Rodney Atkins, Justin Moore, Josh Thompson, Eric Paslay and Sunny Sweeney are set to bring a blend of rock-influenced, traditional and Texas country to two main stages during the third annual Country Throwdown tour. Willie Nelson headlined last year's tour.
In addition to the mainstage performances, the Country Throwdown tour welcomes the return of the Bluebird Cafe stage, which will feature up-and-coming songwriters who will perform several "in the round" sets throughout the day.
Rodney will appear on tour dates throughout June, while Justin will perform on dates from May 18 to 27.
