Rascal Flatts, Chris Young, The Band Perry + More to Tour Australia in 2013
Apparently, Rascal Flatts have been bringing their 'Changed' tour to American fans long enough. So Gary LeVox, Jay DeMarcus and Joe Don Rooney are headed to the land down under to make their first ever headlining appearance in Australia next year at the 2013 '2013 CMC Rocks the Hunter'.
'CMC Rocks the Hunter' is billed as Australia's biggest international country and roots festival. This 3-day event is scheduled for March 15-17, 2013, and will feature American country acts such as Rascal Flatts, Billy Ray Cyrus (who is apparently still huge in Australia), The Band Perry, Chris Young and David Lee Murphy. Also performing will be Canadian country/folk band Corb Lund & the Hurtin' Albertans. You may be familiar with Lund, as he regularly schedules extended tour dates in Texas.
The Bluegrass All Stars, Catherine Britt, Dean Brody and several more international artists will also be performing. And don't be surprised if more familiar acts are added to the roster as the event draws nearer.
Now in its 6th year, 'CMC Rocks the Hunter' has a proven itself to be the biggest show in Australia, bringing in a top notch roster of headlining artists. In 2012, Tim McGraw and Faith Hill served as the main attraction, while the legendary Alan Jackson served as the festival headliner in 2011.
