Country singer Luke Combs has been tapped to replace Eric Church as one of the headliners for the 2022 Stagecoach Music Festival.
Church had originally been booked to join Carrie Underwood and Thomas Rhett atop the bill for the spring 2020 event before it was scrapped due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Now organizers are planning to bring the country music gathering back after a two-year hiatus with Underwood and Rhett still among the top acts, but this time, Combs will step in to fill the third headlining slot vacated by Church.
Also helping to celebrate the return of the typically-annual weekend festival will be Brandi Carlile, Maren Morris, Margo Price, Brothers Osborne, Jimmie Allen, Lindsay Ell, Ryan Hurd, Rhiannon Giddens, and Yola, as well as rockers the Black Crowes, Motown icon Smokey Robinson, and dance DJ Diplo, who will help to close out the three-day festival with a set on 1 May.
Stagecoach 2022 will take place on the same Indio, California grounds as the popular Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, which will wrap its second weekend just one week earlier.
