By The Mercury

The Kicker Country Stampede has announced its headliners for this year’s festival.

Country Music Award Entertainer of the Year nominee and reigning Academy of Country Music Entertainer of the Year winner Luke Bryan will perform on Friday night.

Country Music Award Male Vocalist of the Year nominee and reigning Academy of Country Music Album of the Year winner Eric Church will be the Saturday night headliner.

“Country Stampede has become a lifestyle event, not just for the music, but for the overall experience,” says Country Stampede General Manager Wayne Rouse.

Festival organizers have also announced exclusive market radio partners for the four-day musical extravaganza:  94.5 Country in Topeka; KFDI in Wichita; WDAF (The Wolf) in Kansas City, Kan.;  KZKX (KIX FM) in Lincoln, Neb.

“We have a great relationship with radio in all markets, but the with country music audience growing so rapidly it only made sense for us to expand our marketing into area surrounding the festival, “ says Rouse.  “This is the first time we have created radio partners exclusively for each market, and it is very exciting,”
