By Laura Bennett

The 2015 iHeartRadio Country Festival is just over a month away! The first-ever iHeartRadio Country Festival, held at the Erwin Center on March 29, 2014, was tremendously successful with nine performers that had over 14,000 fans singing and dancing the night away! We can’t wait to see what bigger and better action we’ll catch when the celebration of all things Country returns on Saturday, May 2!

Whether you’re an iHeartRadio Country Festival veteran or a first-time attendee, we’ve got five reasons why you definitely won’t want to miss this year’s fest!

1. You never know which celebrities you might see!
In 2014, season four winner of the hit NBC show The Voice Danielle Bradbery and Pretty Little Liars actress and breakout country singer Lucy Hale surprised the crowd as special guests! Who knows who you could run into in 2015!

2. With 11 performers total, there are bound to be some killer collaborations on stage!
Florida Georgia Line joined Jason Aldean onstage for “The Only Way I Know” last year. Maybe we’ll be lucky enough to see Brad Paisley team up with Darius Rucker? Or Little Big Town with Rascal Flatts? The possibilities are endless!
