Joe Nichols joins Lee Brice and Tyler Farr as headliners for this year’s Headwaters Country Jam. The three-day festival in western Montana now features a dozen country artists, with more to come.

2016 Headwaters Country Jam will also feature performances from newcomers like Chase Bryant, as well as veterans like Mark Chesnutt and Darryl Worley. Halfway to Hazard, Stephanie Quayle and Annie Bosko are a few more announced on Wednesday morning. Look for Logan Brill, Tim Montana and the Shrednecks, Laney Lou and the Bird Dogs and the Devon Worley Band, as well.

Nichols brings hits like “Brokenheartsville,” “Tequila Makes Her Clothes Come Off” and “Sunny and 75,” as well as new songs from an upcoming eighth studio album. “Freaks Like Me” is his current single. It mixes his love of traditional country music and themes with modern production. Rumor has it he’s also cutting a country swing version of “Baby Got Back” for this next studio album!

The camping and country music festival takes place at the Bridge, a well-known 159-acre venue near Three Forks, Mont. 2016 will be the ninth year country’s top stars headed toward the scenic stage. Previous Jams included sets from Eric Church, Montgomery Gentry, Dustin Lynch and Tracy Lawrence. Chesnutt is a Headwaters veteran.

More artists will be announced as the June 16-18 party draws closer. Three-day passes are on sale now, with VIP passes and packages also available. Single day tickets will be made available this spring.
