WE Fest announced today that country superstar Keith Urban and the legendary duo Brooks & Dunn are joining Chris Stapleton as headliners for the 2019 festival.

WE Fest also announced that Jake Owen and Billy Currington will be at the 37th annual WE Fest, which is Aug. 1-3, 2019, in Detroit Lakes, Minn.

Chris Stapleton is one of the hottest acts in the country scene as of late, with his last two albums both winning Album of the Year at the ACM and CMA Awards. He won three Grammys earlier this year for Best Country Album, Best Country Solo Performance and Best Country Song.


The festival announced Stapleton would headline 2019 during this year’s festival.

Keith Urban boasts 22 No. 1 songs and won the coveted Entertainer of the Year Award at the 2005 CMA Awards. Six of his last seven albums have topped the country charts, with his latest, Graffiti U, recently was certified Gold.

Brooks & Dunn is one of the most successful country music duos in history, with Ronnie Dunn and Kix Brooks owning 20 No. 1 singles and have sold millions of albums. Their first five albums were certified at least two-times Platinum, with their debut record, Brand New Man, garnering the honor six times.

Jake Owen, the singer of smash hits “Barefoot Blue Jean Night” and “Alone With You,” has put six singles atop the radio charts and took home the Top New Male Vocalist Award from the ACMs in 2009.

Billy Currington broke onto the scene in 2005 with his Platinum-selling album Doin’ Somethin’ Right, of which the title track was his first of 11 career No. 1 songs.

All WE Fest tickets and campsites are now on sale at the festival's website.
