1. Luke Bryan
Any conversation about country’s biggest star has to include Bryan. He helped lead the genre into the 21st century, and he’s been rewarded with massive success: His last two albums both went to No. 1 on the country charts, and his next, scheduled for an August release, will likely do the same. Summer festival season is the best time to see him—the man has been releasing annual EPs dedicated to spring break every year since 2009 (except for 2013). That shows his commitment to good times, and he’ll bring the same dedication to his show.
