A second round of performers at the 2014 Country Thunder was announced on Saturday, adding to the already packed line-up. Joining headlining artists Jason Aldean, Miranda Lambert, and the Band Perry will be Thompson Square, Cassadee Pope, Tyler Farr, Easton Corbin and LoCash Cowboys.
The four day festival kicks off in Florence on April 10.
Country Thunder executive producer Troy Vollhoffer has stated the importance of finding the right balance of artists every year, and it would seem this wave of musicians will offer fans plenty of two-stepping and sing-along opportunities to fill up the event.
The 2013 Country Thunder featured performances from Toby Keith, Lady Antebellum and Lee Brice, setting the bar high for the coming year. Fans can rest easy, however, as the recent line-up announcement includes several musicians that have also broken ground on the country music scene in their own right, and are fully prepared to contend.
Since winning season three of The Voice in 2012, Cassadee Pope hasn't let off the throttle and recently put out her debut solo album, Frame by Frame, in October; Thompson Square just walked away with an Academy of Country Music award for top vocal duo.
Tyler Farr has also seen the skyrocket to success in 2013 with his third single "Redneck Crazy" charting at number 2 and earning Platinum certification.
Another man familiar with life at the top of the charts is Easton Corbin who scored two top 5 albums with 2010's self-titled effort and All Over the Road in 2012. Finally, rounding out the list, is country party boys LoCash Cowboys.
