Singer-songwriter Jason Aldean has consistently dominated the “Hot Country Songs” and “Country Airwaves” charts, taking home two Grammy awards for “Best Country Album.” Aldean’s Summerfest appearances comes hot off the tail of the release of his newest album Macon, Georgia – Aldean’s tenth studio release containing a colossal 20 new songs as well as 10 previously unreleased live tracks.

2. Thomas Rhett

JULY 9 AT 7:30 P.M. | AMERICAN FAMILY INSURANCE AMPHITHEATER

And if you’re excited about Jason Aldean, chances are you’d enjoy Thomas Rhett as well – Rhett has songwriting credits on some of Aldean’s albums. But he’s not just a ghost-writer, he’s also known as “the most reliable maker of No. 1 singles in country music.” He’s been on charing in the country world since his debut in 2012. His sixth studio album, Where We Started, was released earlier this year. That album’s single, “Slow Down Summer,” is something all of us in Milwaukee can relate to.

3. Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit

JUNE 23 AT 10 P.M. | BMO HARRIS PAVILION

Singer songwriter Jason Isbell is most recognizable for his work with Drive By Truckers. However, after he left that band, the Grammy-award-winning artist started the 400 Unit band in 2009. The group’s recent release Georgia Blue is comprised strictly of covers of Georgia-based artists, fulfilling a promise Isbell made that if Joe Biden won the state of Georgia during the elections, he would write a charity album.

4. Michael Ray

JUNE 30 AT 10 P.M. | US CELLULAR CONNECTION STAGE

Pop-country star Michael Ray has performed at the Grand Ol Opry over 60 times – and he plans to one day become a member. After releasing two successful albums, Ray has released High Education, a collection of songs that includes “Whiskey and Rain,” a throwback country song that sounds like it was ripped straight from the ‘90s. Ray’s sound has been described as a marriage of vintage and modern Country soundscapes – combining the best of both worlds.

5. Indigo Girls

JUNE 30 AT 10 P.M. | BRIGGS & STRATTON BIG BACKYARD STAGE

Folk duo Indigo Girls have been around since the ‘80s, releasing a total of 15 studio albums over the years. Both Amy Ray and Emily Saliers are members of the LBTQIA+ community, and have been active in political and environmental issues. Indigo Girls’ latest release, Look Long, came out in 2020 and takes inspiration from the driving force of the younger generation’s call to action in regards to on-the-ground work in their respective communities.
