Blake Shelton To Thunder In Arizona, Wisconsin

The annual Country Thunder music festivals in Arizona and Wisconsin haven’t announced complete lineups for 2015 but organizers are dropping a few names.  Like Blake Shelton and Luke Bryan.

The first headlining announcement for the April 9-12 in Florence, Ariz., is all about Shelton, the chart-topping country superstar / “The Voice” judge and coach.

Local station KMLE will disclose additional headliners Nov. 15 at its annual LaunchFest party, which boasts a lineup featuring “The Voice” season-three winner Cassadee Pope along with “Pretty Little Liars” star Lucy Hale and singer/songwriter John King.

Four-day passes priced at $130 are currently available.  Click here for more info.

But Shelton won’t stop with just one Country Thunder.  The one-man hit factory responsible for “Sure Be Cool If You Did,” “Mine Would Be You” and “Neon Light” will headline the Wisconsin festival sometime during the July 23-26 run.  Also on the lineup is Luke Bryan, Shelton’s ACM co-host.

So far, “Bluke” is the only entry on Wisconsin’s lineup.  Of course, a July festival means Country Thunder has plenty of time to announce its summer roster. However, you do need to hustle if you want to snap up the four-day passes for $160 because organizers say the supply is limited.  Click here for details.
