In April, Lil Nas X performed "Old Town Road" at the Stagecoach Festival live for the first time with Billy Ray Cyrus. It was like a christening party, his big welcome into the entire realm of country, on one of its largest stage.
Next year at 2020's Stagecoach, Lil Nas X will be performing in full. He's not just a blip anymore: He's taking over the radar as a scheduled performer on the third line of the poster. Yee-haw.
Festival organizers announced that Carrie Underwood, Eric Church, and Thomas Rett are Stagecoach 2020's three headliners. In addition to this trio and Lil Nas X, Morgan Wallen, Dan + Shay, Midland, and Jon Pardi are set to perform as well. Representing for country's veterans are Billy Ray Cyrus, Alan Jackson, Marty Stuart, and more.
It'll be awesome to see the Billy Ray Cyrus and Lil Nas X reunion, where they can relive the magnificent success of the tune and Lil Nas X's resulting career afterward. Imagine a Billy Ray Cyrus-assisted rendition of "Panini." The chills are already forming.
The fest is set to take place at Empire Polo Grounds in Riverside County, California. Tickets go on sale on October 18. Check out the full lineup above.
