Country music takes over Baton Rouge this weekend

May 27, 2016 - 2:29 AM

NEW ORLEANS - Country music fans descend on Baton Rouge, Louisiana, for the Memorial Day weekend to hear some of the hottest performers in the genre including Luke Bryan, Jason Aldean and Eric Church as part of the 2016 Bayou County Superfest.

The star-studded three-day festival — in its seventh year — annually draws thousands to LSU's Tiger Stadium. A free fan fest is planned before the stadium gates open for the ticketed concerts.

Performing Friday, on the festival's opening night with Bryan, are Lady Antebellum, Little Big Town and the Randy Rogers Band. On Saturday, Brothers Osborne, Frankie Ballard, Cole Swindell and Darius Rucker take the stage ahead of Church. Fans can hear A Thousand Horses, Dustin Lynch, Thomas Rhett, Dierks Bentley and Aldean, who'll close the festival's final night.

Tickets remain available for all three days of the show.
