Following 2021 and 2022 sell-outs at Canyon Moon Ranch in Florence, Country Thunder Music Festivals returns with a vengeance in 2023 with Jon Pardi, Luke Bryan, Cody Johnson and Dierks Bentley.

A monster talent roster, which also includes Ashley McBryde, Parker McCollum, Kip Moore, Parmalee, Lonestar, Tracy Byrd, Nate Smith, Randall King, Hailey Whitters, The Reklaws and many more will only add to the legend of the desert’s most iconic music festival.

“Our fans in Arizona have come to expect the biggest and best when it comes to the talent at our events,” says Country Thunder Music Festivals CEO Troy Vollhoffer. “This lineup goes even deeper with the hottest up-and-comers in the business and classic country artists who have stood the test of time.”

“We are incredibly proud to return to Arizona and deliver this lineup to some of the best country music fans in the world.”

Indeed, acts such as McBryde, McCollum, and Moore are bona fide headliners in their own right, which all adds up to the perfect opening spring weekend for the 2023 Country Thunder Festival season.

Being a country music and television superstar has kept Luke Bryan extremely busy over the past several years, and we know the Thunder faithful are looking forward to seeing him back on the CT Arizona stage.

His latest single, Country On is on track to be his 30th No. One single. The wild ride to superstardom has included 19 billion global streams, 13 million albums sold, numerous sold-out tours and over 50 major music awards including five coveted Entertainer of the Year wins. Are you ready, CT Nation?

Arizona native Dierks Bentley could probably play here every year, and he always leaves this special legion of fans wanting more.

Dierks Bentley has long been a Music Row standout for devotion to his roots in classic Country and bluegrass as his upcoming 10th album landmark speaks to how time has flown in Bentley’s unique, 21st-century career. He landed his first publishing deal in 2001 and released his debut album in 2003, producing an instant No. One single.

The years since have revealed a rare consistency that’s fueled longevity – eight more albums that reached the top of the Country sales charts, resulting in 21 No. One songs, 6.4 billion streams, three CMA Awards, 14 GRAMMY® nominations and membership into the Grand Ole Opry. Trendy sounds have ebbed and flowed around him over these two decades, but fans have relied on Bentley for something more nourishing and individual. Bentley has never been so free to infuse his passions into music destined for the competitive commercial Country arena, which is evident through his new single “Gold” will build on that enviable legacy. He also has created professional endeavors outside of the music with his Flag & Anthem lifestyle collection Desert Son, along with his “Dierks Bentley’s Whiskey Row” franchise hosting four locations.

Cody Johnson is likely the hottest artist in country music right now, but it didn’t happen overnight. Cody is known for his explosive live shows and has established a passionately loyal fan base who have sold out 40 shows in 2022. Last fall he released the award-winning feature-length documentary Dear Rodeo: The Cody Johnson Story and released Human The Double Album that included his double platinum-selling, two-week #1 single Til’ You Can’t.

Jon Pardi has also gained notoriety through steady touring and a consistent body of work since his first No. 1, Head Over Boots, in 2015.

Eight more top-5 hits followed, and his brand-new album, Mr. Saturday Night, has earned Pardi his rightful spot as a Country Thunder headliner!
