Stagecoach Day 2 Artist Spotlight

Stagecoach is right around the corner and if day 1 wasn’t enough to get your heart beating real fast day 2 promises to put you into overdrive. The talent that will be gracing the stage for day 2 is insane. With artists such as Mo Pitney, Chris Stapleton, Joe Nichols, Lee Ann Womack, John Fogerty, The Band Perry, and headlining the night is none other than Carrie Underwood. Get ready because day 2 is going to be crazy.

Artist Spotlight

Mo Pitney is taking the stagecoach stage for the first time this year. His current single “Boy & A Girl Thing” is climbing the charts Pitney and proving he will be a household name sooner rather than later. You might have heard some of his other hits such as “I Met Merle Haggard Today” and “Country”.

With 2 GRAMMY wins and a #1 single “Nobody To Blame,” Chris Stapleton is taking the music industry by storm. Its no wonder he was asked to perform at Stagecoach this year. With six weeks at number 1, Stapleton also has various other number 1 hit songs for other artists under his belt. Stapleton is currently climbing the charts with his current single “Fire Away.” If this song is anything like his other #1s we are sure to see him up at the top of the charts very soon.

Joe Nichols is returning to the stagecoach festival after his killer performance in 2013 with hit singles such as “Sunny and 75” and “Gimmie That Girl.” We are sure to see some amazing things from Nichols this year. His current single “Freaks Like Me” with give the crowd a rise! Nichols is sure to leave it all on the stage and leave the crowd wanting more.

What can be said about this next performer but ‘Legendary Female Icon in Country Music?’ Spanning several decades Lee Ann Womack has given us songs such as “I Hope You Dance” and “Something Worth Leaving Behind.”  With her talent and song list this performance is sure to be nothing short of spectacular. Womack’s current single “The Way I’m Livin” will take the top spot on the stage night two.

John Fogerty. That’s it!!! What more can be said about this man. Legendary and Icon Fogerty is returning to the Stagecoach festival after his performance in 2008. He brings with him songs such as “Born On The Bayou,” “Mystic Highway” and “Don’t You Wish It Was True” along with his latest single “Fortunate Son.” This is sure to be one of the best performances of the night and one of the most anticipated.

But wait there is more!!!!!!

The Band Perry is taking the stage for the third time in Stagecoach history after their performances in 2012 and 2015. They bring to us their latest single “Live Forever.” It follows past singles such as “Better Dig 2,” “Chainsaw” and “If I Die Young.” With this being their third year they are no strangers to the Stagecoach crowd and they are sure to bring a spectacular show that will leave all the fans shouting for more.

THE HEADLINER

Who better to close out night two than a legend in her own right. Multi-time GRAMMY Award winner Carrie Underwood. With a list of hits a mile long Underwood is the perfect person to close out a night of high energy performers. Underwood brings to the stage her latest #1 song “Heartbeat.” We are sure to hear her other hits such as “Two Black Cadillacs,” “Blown Away” and “Before He Cheats.” These could be encore songs as this Country Diva has many songs that will keep the crowd rocking through her entire set. It is no doubt that if the crowd is loud like in the past years she has performed (2008, 2011) an encore will likely happen.

With a lineup like this night 2 of this 10 year anniversary is surely to be memorable for all those in attendance. If you haven’t bought your tickets for this epic three day festival you better hurry and get them before they sell out. You don’t want to miss this festival for anything. Again the festival is April 29-May 1 in Indio, CA at the Empire Polo Club.
