I am SOOO EXCITED about 2008 Stagecoach. I went to last years and had an AMAZING time. All I know is, I have seen Dierks Bentley, Tim Mcgraw and Gretchen Wilson before and all three concerts were GREAT!!! It is so worth paying a few hundred bucks and seeing so many talented artist. I CAN'T WAIT!!!!
Are you kidding me???? What a MAJOR disappointment!!!! NO George Strait, Alan Jackson, Brooks and Dunn, or Chesney??? My hopes of Stagecoach this year fall on Rascal Flats and Tim McGraw and the rest of the lackluster line up. I guess I won't be in a hurry to buy VIP tickets like I had last year. Last year I was conflicted as to who I wanted to see and this year I have to settle for someone. I think Golden Voice could've done a little better especially if last year was so successful. Should I pin my hopes on Golden Voice adding someone better or stick to the concerts at Coors in San Diego.... -A disgruntled Incahooter
I've got to say......after last year, it's kind of disappointing.......especially Rascal Flatts.....I don't think that they belong in a country music festival.....the Festival seems to be leaving mainstream country this year and going quite "pop". Just my opinion, though......will we go again, not quite sure....didn't get the "gee, we've got to go". Would like to see Big & Rich, but not sure to the tune of a $1,000+ weekend, counting hotel, VIP seats, etc.
I should add, though, that Dwight Yoakam is a great person to have at Stagecoach.....I guess that RF is the most disappointing act on the lineup.....how about Brad Paisley or the like instead. Oh well, maybe we'll just make it an early night on Saturday or see who's headlining the other stages.
Unbelievable!!!!!!! I was blown away by all the great acts last year, and was equally excited to see this year's lineup. One of the great things about Stagecoach is the variety of music/musicians. There's definately something for everyone and it gives us a chance to hear something different too.
Favorites for this year?????? Hard to choose, but Carrie Underwood, Gretchen Wilson and Trace Adkins are certainly 3 that I don't want to miss.
There are several ways to look at this line up. While it is disappointing to see the line up leaning towards “POP” or Rock and Roll, it does mean that some of the other venues won’t be as crowded. While the hordes of people, brainwashed by Nashville’s money obsessed music moguls, clamber towards bands like Rascal Flatts, you can get closer to the stages with artists playing actual country music. Artists like Rascal Flatts and last years Kenney Chesney are very talented musicians in their own right and they appeal to a broad range of people but they shouldn’t be in venues that advertise country music. If you don’t agree with me that is fine. See the part about “brainwashed”.
I've got to agree I would love to see Alan Jackson and George Strait and don't forget Brooks & Dunn, but this line-up is just as amazing. For the major headliners I've seen about 90% of them perform at least once already. I'm excited.....can't wait till next week to buy our tickets!
I was super-excited to see the lineup!!! I've seen Dierks and Taylor Swift before and they've been great!!! - but looking forward to all of them!! Carrie! Rascal Flatts! Tim McGraw! Trace Adkins! Well, you all read the lineup - I was excited about all of'em! WOOHOO!
All of you people who want to criticize the line up and bash what is considered "country" music should all just get together and dust off the 45's and sit around while the rest of us enjoy the company of thousands of people who are there for a good time. The acts can't be the same every year or you will never attract new people to come to the festival. The acts are all great and all have their own uniqueness so if you have any problems with these artists, I have a good idea, "Don't listen to them!" By the way getting all the artists from last year also has to fit into there already difficult schedules. Just because stagecoach calls Kenny and whould like him to join the festival, his schedule just doesn't allow it, he isn't going to change another concert to come here, just because he was here last year. I'm sorry this going on and on but I am just tired of the haters out there who just like to complain. If they were ever at a WE Fest in MN or any festival like last years, they would relize how much of a blast it is no matter who is on stage! Looking forward to partying all weekend again this year!
I LOVE this lineup!! I know it's hard to top last year. I think we feel loyal to those acts as long-time fans and some we fell in love with BECAUSE of Stagecoach. In a perfect world we'd have them ALL... but it's just not possible. Given the factors of "can't have the exact same show as last year" and artists' schedules (like someone commented about) I think we lucked out with the names on this ticket!! I'll be there with bells on!
My opinion: anyone that thinks that they can get a better deal, seeing all of these diverse acts in one setting, one partyin weekend, great people, GOOD LUCK,
We are returning this year and I tell ya'all... there is nothing better on this coast! that is foresure. Great music, great people, great weather, and
lots of great lookin cowboys!
and happy to be part of this... and i actually think that the line up is pretty darn good, yeah there are some that I would like to see, but hey I loved the surprise of seeing the judds... I am excited!
