BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - George Strait, the King of Country Music, will headline an expanded 2014 Bayou Country Superfest as part of the final leg of his farewell tour.
He joins country music superstar Reba McEntire, who's making her first-ever appearance at the festival, along with Jason Aldean, Luke Bryan and Louisiana's Hunter Hayes.
Scheduled over Memorial Day weekend, May 23-25, festival organizers said Wednesday the event is Strait's only announced festival appearance and it will be the only place to see Strait and McEntire together on one night. The pair will highlight opening night.
Bryan headlines night two along with Florida Georgia Line, Lee Bice, Easton Corbin and Gloriana. Aldean will close the festival, which expands to three nights, with Eric Church, Hayes, Big & Rich + Cowboy Troy and Joe Nichols.
