Country superstars Carrie Underwood and Blake Shelton are heading to Louisville for the second annual Hometown Rising Festival. The two-day bash, which doubles as a music and bourbon festival, will also welcome Old Dominion, Dierks Bentley, Jon Pardi, Billy Ray Cyrus and more.
It’s set to kick off at the Highland Festival Grounds on September 12 with headlining performances from Shelton and Old Dominion, as well as appearances from Pardi, Clint Black, Russell Dickerson, Jessie James Decker, Caylee Hannack and Riley Green, among others. The weekend concludes the following night with Underwood and Bentley taking center stage. Other performers on the September 13 schedule include Cyrus, Chris Janson, Mitchell Tenpenny, Cam and Blanco Brown.
“We’ve been looking forward to Hometown Rising returning to Louisville ever since last year’s inaugural sold-out weekend,” Hometown Rising organizer Danny Wimmer said in a statement. “We knew Louisville would be the perfect location to launch our first country music festival and the fans certainly did not disappoint. We’re looking forward to experiencing another weekend of incredible country music and top-of-the-line bourbon along with several exciting festival additions.”
The festival’s headliners will make several similar appearances in the months leading up to Hometown Rising. Underwood recently announced a brief book tour this March and will headline Stagecoach Festival. Shelton is in the midst of his ongoing Friends and Heroes Tour, while Bentley returns to Washington’s Watershed Festival this summer. Prior to Hometown Rising, Old Dominion will perform stadium gigs while they support Kenny Chesney on his Chillaxification Tour.
