Off The Rails Country Music Fest returns May 4 and 5, 2019 at Toyota Stadium in Frisco, Texas and country music fans are in for a very good time. The 2019 lineup includes some of the biggest names in country music, plus some up and coming artists. But who should be on your watchlist? Check out these 5 must-see artists below, then get your tickets to Off The Rails Country Music Fest here at AXS.
1. Luke Bryan
Luke Bryan is one of the most popular artists in country music, and it's not hard to see why. He's recorded some of the genre's catchiest songs like his recent single "Huntin' Fishin' and Lovin' Every Day" which has more than 148 million hits on YouTube. But he's an even better live performer, who knows how to get the audience eating out of the palm of his hand, as evidenced by any of his live videos. With great music and great stage presence, Bryan is going to be the talk of the festival.
2. Jake Owen
Jake Owen knows how to party as evidenced by his latest song "Down At the Honkytonk." And that's the point of every music festival - to party with fellow fans and enjoy a few days away from the grind. Owen's music will make audiences forget all their troubles and easily unwind. His setlist will likely be one of the most upbeat, relaxed playlists of the weekend, and he'll make sure the party keeps going as long as he's performing.
3. Craig Morgan
Craig Morgan is a true journeyman of country music. He's quietly plugged along for decades, just making good music without calling that much attention to himself. That's why everyone should pay more attention to him. With songs like "That's What I Love About Sunday" he'll appeal to the more traditional country music fans and slow things down a bit. And he's not shy about opening up and letting fans get to know him better; he has his own reality TV series "Morgan Family Strong." He should bring that same warmth to Off The Rails.
4. Sam Hunt
Sam Hunt exploded onto the scene three years ago with his single "Break Up In A Small Town." That song was fantastic, but Owen has continued to improve since then, both in terms of his music and his live performance. Newer music like "Downtown's Dead" shows a new side to him, and recent live videos demonstrate how he's relaxed and having a great time. Hunt is an artist on the rise, and he will fill Toyota Stadium with all his energy.
5. Lauren Alaina
Lauren Alaina first rose to fame when she competed on "American Idol" but she's done interesting things since then. Her new single "Ladies In The 90's" is a fun throwback to two decades ago, and perfect to get an entire festival crowd grooving. Yet she's also demonstrated a more emotional side on songs like "Road Less Traveled" too. She'll win over the audience easily with her personality, and wow them with her vocal ability.
