Country music festivals are as much a part of summer as the beach and baseball, but keeping track of them can be a chore!

Over a dozen well-known festivals begin early in the year and run through December, featuring A-list artists like Jason AldeanChris Stapleton, Thomas Rhett and Luke Bryan. Miranda Lambert will appear often, as will hot newcomers like Brett Young, Dustin Lynch and Kane Brown. Maren Morris and Brothers Osborne are two more with headlining slots in 2019 and you'll find Dierks Bentley virtually everywhere.

(This list will be updated as more festivals are announced, and as additional lineups for 2019 and beyond are revealed.) This year find the Taste of Country staff at at least three prominent country music festivals across America, including our own Taste of Country Music Festival in Hunter, N.Y., Country Jam Colorado in Grand Junction, Colo., and WE Fest in Detroit Lakes, Minn.

A few festivals called it quits after 2018 but more are added, including a fifth Country Thunder Festival, this time in Florida. There is really no excuse if you're in the mood for live country music this spring, summer and fall. Go find some new friends a few new favorite acts at a country festival.
