Country Summer 2019: What You Need to Know

Share this story

All right everyone. Grab your tickets to Country Summer 2019 now, because country superstar Tim McGraw, 2018's ACM & CMA Vocal Group of the Year Old Dominion, and 2015's Country Summer headliner Jake Owen will be headlining the annual country festival at the Sonoma County Fairgrounds in Santa Rosa. With this exciting news, tickets are sure to sell out quickly.



In case anyone needs a crash course in who Tim McGraw is: his country music career includes 43 number one radio singles, 16 number one albums, and countless industry awards and accolades. In addition, he has three singles in the Top 20 of the pop radio charts. Oh, and he's married to Faith Hill, another country and pop music superstar. With hits like 'I Need You' (with Faith Hill), 'It's Your Love,' 'Don't Take the Girl,' and 'Over and Over' (featuring rapper Nelly), fans will be heard singing at the top of their lungs all throughout downtown Santa Rosa. 



Old Dominion, 2018's ACM and CMA Vocal Group of the Year winner, has emerged as one of the hottest breaking bands in country music, fusing clever lyrics with an infectious sound. Proving that they are not your average country band, Old Dominion blends old-fashioned country charm, lyrical wit, and rock n' roll grit into pop music. After releasing Happy Endings, the band's sophomore album debuting at number one on the Billboard Top Country Albums Chart and number seven on the Top 200, Old Dominion scored its sixth number one single with 'Hotel Key.' Old Dominion's current single, 'Make It Sweet,' is one of the band's fastest-rising singles to date.



For Jake Owen, it's all-American nostalgia. No artist is more adept at summoning up the times when a sunny day, good friends, and maybe a cold drink were all you needed to feel forever blessed. Now reunited with Joey Moi, the producer of his star-making album Barefoot Blue Jean Night, Jake is recording the country music soundtrack of summers past and those still to come. Owen's single 'I Was Jack (You Were Diane)' hit number one on the country airplay charts last summer and was the fastest rising single of his career so far.

As of now, only three-day passes are available. We don't know which day any of the headliners are playing, but if you are a country music fan, your best bet is to grab your General Admission 3-Day passes, General Admission with Tent Camping 3-Day passes (and 2 Nights), or Reserved Seating 3-Day passes now. Or if you're looking for the BEST view of the stage, grab 3-Day The Pit passes for access to standing-room-only tickets that get you right in front of the Chevy Silverado Main Stage.

More details about the full Country Summer lineup and single day tickets will be shared once they are released, so we'll make sure to keep you updated!
