Other Australian artists in the mix include Steve Forde, Travis Collins, Troy Kemp, Christie Lamb, Melanie Dyer, Mustered Courage, The Viper Creek Band, Jayne Denham, Casey Barnes, Route 33 and Rachael Fahim.
Copy Luke Bryan
Country music megastar LUKE BRYAN leads the charge, making his Australian debut at CMC Rocks QLD 2018 to overwhelming demand. He’s sold over 10 million albums, 40 million tracks worldwide and has chalked up 3 billion streams, and with current single ‘Light It Up’ currently making waves at country radio worldwide, Luke is a bonafide superstar. Luke performed the US National Anthem at this year’s Super Bowl and consistently sells out stadiums across the US, from Chicago’s Soldier Field to Cleveland’s First Energy Stadium, performing to over 5.6 million fans over the last three years. Known for his explosive live performances, Willowbank better prepare to see Luke blow up the CMC Rocks Main Stage next year!
Copy Kelsea Ballerini
Country’s hottest female artist KELSEA BALLERINI returns to the CMC Rocks stage a fully fledged star, last year creating history as the first ever female artist to achieve three consecutive #1 US Billboard hits with ‘Love Me Like You Mean It’, ‘Peter Pan’ and ‘Dibs’. Since then, she has sold out two national headline tours across North America as well as her own headline shows in the UK, garnered a Grammy nomination for Best New Artist, supported the likes of Tim McGraw, Lady Antebellum, Thomas Rhett and Carrie Underwood, and has performed live on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. With a brand new album Unapologetically due for release next month, Kelsea is one of the most exciting artists on the world music stage.
Copy Darius Rucker
Multiple Grammy Award-winner, DARIUS RUCKER, will land in Willowbank for his first ever-Australian performance at CMC Rocks QLD 2018. With eight #1 Billboard Country Singles under his belt, including ‘Homegrown Honey’, co-written with label-mate Charles Kelley (Lady Antebellum), and ‘If I Told You’, the lead single from his forthcoming fifth studio album out October 20, Rucker (former lead singer with Hootie & The Blowfish) will have some fresh new cuts to unleash on CMC Rocks audiences when he lands down under in March.
General public admission tickets go on sale at 8am (AEST) on Monday, October 9. Full details at www.cmcrocks.com
