Get ready for some stagecouch surfing.
SiriusXM and Goldenvoice have teamed up for a special weekend-long broadcast that’s brimming with the biggest names in country music.
Dubbed “Stagecouch Weekend,” the event fills the gap left by the scheduled 13th edition of California’s Country Music Festival, which has been pushed back due to the health emergency.
As previously reported, Goldenvoice’s signature event was due to take place April 24-26 in southern California. The pandemic has changed all that. Citing COVID-19 concerns and at the direction of Riverside and local health authorities, organizers have rescheduled the fest to the new dates of Oct. 23-25, at the Empire Polo Club in Indio.
The original dates won’t go to waste. Thomas Rhett will headline the Friday broadcast for “Stagecouch Weekend”, Carrie Underwood is the top-billed artist Saturday and Eric Church leads the lineup on Sunday.
A long list of artists are confirmed for exclusive “at home” performances, including Ashley McBryde, DustinLynch, Gabby Barrett, Ingrid Andress, Jon Pardi, Midland, Old Dominion and more.
“In this challenging time, we want to continue to help bring artists and fans together, just as they would at Stagecoach,” comments Steve Blatter, Senior Vice President and General Manager for Music Programming, SiriusXM, in a statement.
“With the amazing help of the many great Country music artists involved, this prestigious annual event will come to life like it never has before on The Highway.”
“Stagecouch Weekend” will air on SiriusXM’s The Highway (channel 56) from 12:00 pm to 5:00pm ET each day, followed by an encore broadcast each night, via satellite radios and on the SiriusXM app.
“Celebrating Stagecoach weekend with SiriusXM, all of our artists, partners, fans and community is something we all hold so dear to our hearts, says Stagecoach Talent Buyer Stacy Vee. “We couldn’t let this weekend in April go by quietly, so we decided to throw a house party. I hope everyone enjoys what we have put together.”
