One of the youngest lineups we’ve ever had, and it’s hard to argue just how tremendous every artist involved was… and still IS. Also of note, Mickey Guyton played the VIP pre-show for this event, but was not part of the main stage lineup. We’re including her anyway, because she’s great!
This year was time to turn the party up in a BIG way. We had our first ever returning artist (Scotty!), and we had six different artists on stage. It’s the show we hear talked about more than any other. Filled with the best collective hair on stage ever!
Once we went big in 2017, we knew there was no going back. 2018 threw us a curveball, with a last-minute artist change. But that change made for quite the wild ride. And for the second year in a row, we had SEVEN individual artists on stage at the same time, including a second visit from one of them. We also had one of the coolest moments ever on a Stars & Guitars stage, with a microphone going out, and Cam making the most of it.
How do you get bigger when you’ve put seven artists on one stage the year before? Well, you make EVERYTHING bigger. 2019 marked a new chapter in Stars & Guitars history, with our first ever show in the Crown Coliseum. All the amazing music and story-telling you love, just in a bigger package. And we couldn’t have asked for a more amazing lineup for our big new home. We had another returning artist (Kip Moore), and the man who has since become the biggest country star on the planet.

After a year off during the pandemic, nobody was quite sure what to expect from our Stars & Guitars 2021 experience. But it ended up being one of the most enjoyable and memorable nights we’ve ever had. We had TWO Stars & Guitars alums in the lineup, as well as one of the biggest stars of the 1990s. It was an incredible night.
Tenille Arts, Clay Walker, Carly Pearce, Matt Stell and Drew Parker (along with Scotty McCreery, not pictured) gave us an incredible 2021 Stars & Guitars.
