PHOENIX — Blake Shelton, Florida Georgia Line and Riley Green will join Morgan Wallen as headliners for the 2022 version of Country Thunder Arizona.

The festival will return to Florence on April 7-10, seven months after the most recent four-day weekend event took over the town about 60 miles southeast of Phoenix.

Wallen was first announced as a headliner during this year’s festival, which ran from Oct. 14-17 after numerous delays due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The artist was originally scheduled to headline the October festival but was replaced by Old Dominion.

Shelton has performed at Country Thunder Arizona a handful of times, most recently in 2017.

Florida Georgia Line and Riley Green have also been on stage at the festival.

The lineup also includes, among others, Randy Houser, Gabby Barrett, Hardy, Chase Rice and Lindsay Ellis.

Tickets and campsite rentals for the dates are available through the Country Thunder website.

We want to hear from you.
