Friday morning we're announcing the final member of our 2019 Hometown Holiday lineup! Many of you are convinced that you know exactly who is coming but let me just say, there are a lot of cowboy hat wearing country stars. Here are a few we would love to have join our lineup on Friday:

1. Jason Aldean - If we've done our math correctly, this country crooner hasn't been to Portland since 2017. With a new EP out now, Aldean has to be headed to the Northwest soon... right?

Kevin Winter

2. Brad Paisley - Paisley has never played Hometown Holiday. Think about his list of hits and how many of them would sound amazing stripped down - I mean, "Whiskey Lullaby", "Then", "Remind Me" as a duet with Carly Pearce?! He could be a really great addition!

Cooper Neill

3. Cody Johnson - With deep roots in Texas country music, Hometown Holiday might be the perfect introduction of Cody Johnson to the Portland country scene. What better place to highlight his 2019 album, Ain't Nothin' to It than right here at Hometown Holiday?

Rick Diamond

4. Jon Pardi  - New album, new fiancé, a headlining tour - there's so much to celebrate with Jon Pardi these days. We might be biased, but we think Hometown Holiday is the perfect place to do just that! We haven't seen in him Oregon since he came through Eugene with Dierks Bentley. It's about time he came back to Portland, right? 

Jason Kempin

5. Lil Nas X  -  Now stick with me here, Lil Nas X is a record breaking artist. "Old Town Road" sat atop the Billboard Hot 100 chard for nineteen weeks and has featured the likes of Billy Ray Cyrus, Jake Owen, and Mason Ramsey on remixes of the hit. Maybe he's our next mystery artist!

Mike Coppola

6. Dustin Lynch - We're big Dustin Lynch fans around here. Do you remember when he played Wolfstock and absolutely crushed it?! We'd love to have him come party with the Pack again!

Who do you think it is? We'll let you in on the secret this Friday at 7:20! Don't miss out on all the action, get your tickets here.
