One of the most anticipated country tours of the year has finally revealed its 2012 lineup. This year's Country Throwdown tour will feature Gary Allan, Justin Moore, Eric Paslay, Sunny Sweeney and Josh Thompson. The event's Bluebird Cafe tent stage will also include upcoming and local artists.

The first stop on the trek is Gilford, New Hampshire on May 26. Get presale ticket information here. More dates and cities on the trek will be announced soon, along with a change in the lineup, as Rodney Atkins will take Justin Moore's place on the main stage in June.

In addition to providing great entertainment, the Country Throwdown tour historically partners with a few charities along the way. With Willie Nelson as the headliner last year, the tour helped promote the 'Keep a Breast' program to raise money and awareness for breast cancer research. The country icon and his 2011 tourmates also donated some of their money earned on the trek to help Alabama tornado victims.
