Country artists have been a mainstay at the iHeartRadio Music Festival since it began in 2011, and now they are getting their own event.

Carrie Underwood, Luke Bryan and Florida Georgia Line are just a few of the performers who will take the stage for the inaugural iHeartRadio Country Festival, which will be held on March 29 in Austin, Texas.

“The response to our country performers at the last three iHeartRadio Music Festivals was so incredible we decided to create an entire show just for them,” John Sykes, President of Clear Channel Entertainment Enterprises, explains (quote via Taste of Country). “It will be a country fan’s dream and a testament to the power of country music and recognition of the stature of these artists.”

Underwood, who played at the very first iHeartRadio festival along with Kenny Chesney and Rascal Flatts, is already looking forward to the event.

“It’s going to be a big party for all of us,” Underwood says. “I’ve been lucky enough in my life to go to lots of different other genre concerts as a fan, and I think I would rather be in a country crowd than any other crowd, just because they’re fun, they’re singing along, they’re dancing, everybody’s cool to one another.”

Other country artists taking the stage include Jason Aldean, Eric Church, Lady Antebellum, Jake Owen, Hunter Hayes, and new duo Dan + Shay.

Famed radio DJ Bobby Bones will host the event, which will be broadcast live on all Clear Channel stations. Tickets go on sale on Jan. 18 at 12PM ET. More information is available here.
