FLORENCE, AZ — After dropping out of Country Thunder last year following a controversy, country singer Morgan Wallen will return to Arizona to headline the four-day music festival in the spring.

Blake Shelton, Florida Georgia Line, and Riley Green will also headline the event, April 7-10, 2022, organizers announced Tuesday.

HARDY, American Idol alum Gabby Barrett, Randy Houser, Chase Rice, Lindsay Ell, Michael Ray, Tracy Lawrence, Jameson Rodgers, Blanco Brown, Sawyer Brown, James Barker Band, and MacKenzie Porter will also perform.

Country Thunder was ultimately canceled in 2020 and rescheduled for the fall of 2021 due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

Dustin Lynch, Old Dominion, Luke Combs, and Eric Church headlined the 2021 event, which was held Oct. 14-17. Old Dominion replaced Wallen at that event.

Four-day festival passes for the 2022 event went on sale on Tuesday via CountryThunder.com. Single-day tickets will go on sale on a later day.
