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 Blake Shelton, Eric Church, Brad Paisley, Kenny Chesney and Luke Bryan. Carrie Underwood is headlining a limited number of country festivals. Miranda Lambert will appear often, as will hot newcomers like Brett Young, Dustin Lynch and Kane Brown.

Scroll through to learn all about the country festivals near you, and then click any of the links to stay updated and to get tickets. (This list will be updated as more festivals are announced, and as additional lineups for 2018 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.
