Country Thunder is preparing for a massive musical onslaught from July 24-27, 2014. Country music fans will two-step the night away with Jason Aldean, reigning ACM “Male Vocalist of the Year.” Aldean brings the power to the party wherever he performs. Alongside powerhouse Aldean is four time and current ACM and CMA female vocalist of the year Miranda Lambert. With her massive catalogue of hits, her high-energy show and her fiery personality, fans will come to see the real face of new country music.
 
But that’s not all. 2013 ACM Top New Male Artist Brantley Gilbert is also coming to this party. The outlaw country boy who’s also a bit of a heart-throb, is the real deal, delivering the hits that he’s written for others, and a set of tunes that will raise the temperature through the roof in Twin Lakes in July!
 
Joining these three powerhouses, are some names everyone will know. The festival site will become a massive sing-a-long when the likes of Gary Allan, Sawyer Brown, Craig Morgan, Mark Chesnutt, Joe Diffie, and the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band hit the stage. “Fishin’ in the Dark” is the unofficial Wisconsin state song… right?
 
Joining these legendary acts are some of the hottest artists up and coming in country music. Enter Colt Ford, Charlie Worsham, Will Hoge, and Chad Brownlee with a few acts still to be announced and you've got the makings of an epic weekend of country music.
 
“We feel it’s important to get the right mix of talent every year,” said Troy Vollhoffer, executive producer. “We think we've gotten it right yet again. Our headliners are incredibly strong and we've backed them up with a good mix of hot, young talent, and classic artists who appeal to our entire demographic. We know that our fans are going to have a blast this summer!”
