We’ve been through the history of lineups at WE Fest, but who’s going to take the stage this year? For starters, Keith Urban, Brooks & Dunn, and Chris Stapleton are headlining WE Fest 2019, which makes for a great blend of old and new country stars. But festivalgoers will be hearing live music from 3:00 in the afternoon on the Main Stage all the way until late night performances at the Barn Stage. Here’s the 2019 WE Fest lineup, schedule, and a look at who’s headlining day by day. Be sure to check it out so you don’t miss your favorites!

Tyler Rich – 3:00 – 4:00 PM
Walker Hayes – 5:00 – 6:00 PM
LeAnn Rimes – 6:30 – 8:00 PM
Billy Currington – 8:30 – 10:00 PM
Keith Urban – 10:45 PM – 12:15 AM – Headliner
Tyler Rich – 12:30 – 1:30 AM at the Barn Stage
You know it’s a big day for country music when LeAnn Rimes and Billy Currington aren’t even in the headliner spot! So much for saving the best for last, because the first night of WE Fest looks to be epic. Tyler Rich will open and close the day, taking the early slot as well as the Barn Stage after midnight. He’s the up-and-coming Californian country singer known for songs like “The Difference” and “11:11” as well as just being generally handsome. Walker Hayes is following him up and you’ll definitely know his upbeat, catchy (kinda clever) songs like “You Broke Up with Me,” “90s Country,” and “Shut Up Kenny.”
OMG, and then LeAnn Rimes is going to be there. Is she gonna sing “How Do I Live Without You?” or everybody’s favorite songs from Coyote Ugly like “Can’t Fight the Moonlight” and “The Right Kind of Wrong.” Um, get ready to hear every girl in the audience sing along if so! In fact, just get ready for Thursday to be a sing-along fest because Billy Currington is coming on right after with hits like “Good Directions,” “Do I Make You Wanna,” and “Must Be Doin’ Somethin’ Right.”
The Australian king of country himself, Keith Urban, is headlining on Thursday and you’re pretty much guaranteed to know every song he sings. He just released an album last year – Graffiti U – so you may hear some newer stuff like “Coming Home” and “Parallel Line” or perhaps the slightly older “Blue Ain’t Your Color.” You’ll almost definitely hear one of his first hits “Somebody Like You” (or at least that’s our prediction). But hey, fingers crossed he plays some older faves like “Long Hot Summer” and “Somewhere In My Car” too! He’s just got so many popular songs!
Kelleigh Bannen – 3:00 – 4:00 PM
Jimmie Allen – 5:00 – 6:00 PM
LANCO – 6:30 – 8:00 PM
Jake Owen – 8:30 – 10:00 PM
Brooks & Dunn – 10:45 PM – 12:15 AM – Headliner
Jimmie Allen – 12:30 – 1:30 AM at the Barn Stage
Okay, we take it back, maybe you’re just gonna know the words to ALL these songs. After you hear from newcomers Kelleigh Bannen (“Famous” and “Happy Birthday” are her big ones) and Jimmie Allen, that is. You’ll most likely know Allen from his songs “Make Me Want To” and “Best Shot.” He’ll be playing in the afternoon and late night if you wanna to get more familiar with him!
LANCO is one of those bands you don’t think you know until you hear their stuff. “Greatest Love Story” is always on the radio and “Born to Love You” also comes from their breakthrough album Hallelujah Nights. The band has recently been featured on Brooks & Dunn’s latest album Reboot, a remake of all their big hits… so maybe we’ll see a little collaboration with them later on? Maybe?! Jake Owen is another one of those performers guaranteed to get everybody up and dancing (and potentially making out) with “Barefoot Blue Jean Night,” “American Country Love Song,” and “Beachin’.” No really.
Brooks & Dunn was probably one of the first country albums you ever owned, right? No, just us? Okay, well everything they do is fire, so get ready for ALL the hits! We’re talking “Neon Moon,” “My Maria,” and (oh yes) “Boot Scootin’ Boogie.” Maybe some slightly newer stuff like “Red Dirt Road” too and, oh yeah, that potential surprise performance of “Mama Don’t Get Dressed Up For Nothin’” with LANCO… if we’re lucky.
Adam Doleac – 3:00 – 4:00 PM
Dylan Scott – 5:00 – 6:00 PM
Big & Rich – 6:30 – 8:00 PM
Jamey Johnson – 8:30 – 10:00 PM
Chris Stapleton – 10:45 PM – 12:15 AM – Headliner
Adam Doleac – 12:30 – 1:30 AM at the Barn Stage
Again, you know it’s gonna be a good night when hitmakers Big & Rich aren’t even the main event of the day! New guy Adam Doleac is opening and closing the day with songs like “Bigger Than Us,” “Whiskey’s Fine,” and that “Girl You Look Famous” song. Dylan Scott is jumping on stage after him – he’s got a deep Josh Turner-esque voice. We would call Scott “up and coming,” but really, you’ve been hearing stuff from his 2017 self-titled album for a while now. Expect him to play “Hooked” and “My Girl,” but he’s also got a new album out this year too, so you’ll definitely be hearing a lot of new tunes too.
Big & Rich could be headlining one night at WE Fest and we wouldn’t be mad about it. “Save a Horse, Ride a Cowboy” is destined to get everybody moving, as is “Comin’ to Your City.” But they’ve got some slower ones like “Lost in This Moment” and “Run Away With You” that might have you slow dancing too. Jamey Johnson is a great choice to open for Chris Stapleton because they have that same sort of old, classic, honky tonk country sound. Johnson has tunes like “In Color,” “High Cost of Living,” and “Between Jennings and Jones.”
With his quintessential cowboy hat and beard, Chris Stapleton’s rise to fame has seemed hard and fast, but he’s been writing songs for years. Refreshingly genuine, all of his songs sound like instant classics and real country music (the kind your dad would like). You can expect a good mix of stuff from his albums Traveller and From a Room. “Tennessee Whiskey” is obviously his biggest song, but we’d love to hear “Nobody to Blame,” one of his first hit singles. Oh, and “Broken Halos” and “Parachute” are both slow and emotional songs that’ll probably get a lot of drunken tears flowing… it is the last night, after all!
