1. Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood
Country’s most famous power couple is teaming up for a power tour this year, and July is packed full of shows. They start the month off at the Cajundome in Lafayette, LA., before heading to Garth’s home state of Oklahoma, where they’ll be playing six shows over the course of two weekends. Then it’s off to California to close out the month.
2. Jason Aldean
This two-time Academy of Country Music Entertainer of the Year takes his blistering show to the people this summer with his tour. With 17 No. 1 hits, fans in North Carolina, Indiana, Wisconsin, Missouri, Ohio, North Dakota and Wyoming are all going to have a chance to sing along live this month.
3. Bruno Mars
Look for the diminutive Uptown Funkster to tear it up on his 24K Magic World Tour the second half of the month on the West Coast of the U.S. and Canada, starting July 15 in Las Vegas at T-Mobile Arena.
4. George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic
The man and the band that redefined funk and dance music with their album Mothership Connection in 1975 are still bringing the bootylicious funk to the people. Expect this tour to be as outrageous as ever.
5. Dierks Bentley
Frederick Dierks Bentley is one of the hottest names in country music, and he puts on one of the hottest shows in the industry. With almost 15 years of touring experience, Dierks is traveling with 15 No. 1 singles in his back pocket, as well as his smash new album Black.
6. All Time Low
These hard-working punk/pop mainstays stay on tour as often as anyone in the music business, and this July is no exception. Look for a slightly more mature version on stage as these high school buddies are now staring down 30.
7. Chris Stapleton
Chris Stapleton, the Kentucky-born son of a coal miner broke out strong with a solo record in 2015, five years after leaving his gig as the frontman for the bluegrass group, The SteelDrivers. He wasn’t idle during those five years—he has written more than 150 songs that have appeared on albums by the likes of Adele, Kenny Chesney, George Strait and Tim McGraw.
