Country music is slowly taking over the world with major festivals popping up in Europe and Australia. Who can blame them country music is one of the hottest genres of music and it’s only getting hotter. Yesterday the lineup for the 11th annual CMC Rocks QLD festival was announced and it’s bigger than ever!

This past March CMC Rocks’ all-star lineup featured headliners the Dixie Chicks, Little Big Town and Kip Moore for their 10th Anniversary extravaganza downunder, so to top that they’re turning the dial way up for 2018 with headliners Luke Bryan, Darius Rucker and Kelsea Ballerini.

The 2018 edition of CMC Rocks QLD will take place March 16-18 in Willowbank, Ipswich, Australia.

Joining Luke, Darius and Kelsea will be the following artists:
