Country Thunder Iowa Is Now Labor Day Weekend! Lynyrd Skynyrd, Kane Brown & Old Dominion Continue As Headliners!
Country Thunder is rolling into Forest City, Iowa with a lineup set to include some of the biggest names in country music, and beyond.
“We look forward to the rescheduled dates in Iowa and getting ready for what we know will be an outstanding Iowa debut for our festival,” says Country Thunder CEO, Troy Vollhoffer. “We have always strived for excellence when it comes to the fan experience. Any great festival begins with fan safety and the comfort of patrons who attend our events.
“We felt that pushing our dates to September gives us the best opportunity in making Country Thunder Iowa a world-class event. Given the challenges we have all faced in recent weeks, we’re expecting an Iowa Labor Day weekend like no other. Luckily for us, our artists were more than happy to oblige the schedule changes.”
Originally scheduled from June 12-14, Country Thunder Iowa 2020 will now take place from September 4-6, again at Winnebago Park in Forest City. Headliners Lynyrd Skynyrd, as part of its 50th Anniversary Last Of The Street Survivors tour, superstar Kane Brown and supergroup Old Dominion have all been re-confirmed for the new dates.
They will be joined by country legends Big & Rich, Clay Walker, Lonestar, red-hot hitmakers Mitchell Tenpenny and Meghan Patrick, and the hard-driving, country trio, Cadillac Three, among many others!
As part of its Last Of The Street Survivors Farewell Tour, an evening with Lynyrd Skynyrd at Heritage Park will most certainly bring a performance for the ages. The 2008 Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame inductees are playing all the hits and all the fan favorite during this one last victory lap. During its 50-year history at the top of the southern rock heap, the Jacksonville band has sold nearly 30 million albums.
Think of it: Simple Man, Free Bird, Sweet Home Alabama, What’s Your Name? Saturday Night Special, Gimme Three Steps, That Smell and many more . . . all live on stage one last time – you won’t want to miss this!
On a more recent segment of the popular roots music scale, Kane Brown’s stratospheric star continues to rise, and the Chattanooga native has emerged as a bona fide superstar and headliner. Including No. 1 hits such as What Ifs (featuring Lauren Alaina), Heaven, Lose It, and Good As You, Brown’s live show will make instant mega-fans out of the new CT Nation in Iowa.
In many ways, Old Dominion bridges the gap between new and classic: Amazing musicianship, songwriting and numerous hits which have become a constant on country radio for the past half-dozen years. The group’s freshly-released, self-titled third album debuted at No.1 on the Billboard Country Albums Chart this week. Despite such chart-topping success and countless industry awards, OD is band’s band who knows how to rip up a concert stage and bring the party in a big way.
