Several new artists have been added to the already star-studded Country Thunder Iowa music festival. The Forest City event is set to kick off Friday, June 10th, and conclude on Sunday, June 12th.

A majority of the lineup was announced several months ago. Lee Brice, Kip Moore, and Chris Young are set to be the show's big headliners for the three-day music bash.

A few of the other big names slated to take the stage in Forest City this summer include;

Michael Rey

The artist quickly rose to the top of the country charts with his hit 'Whiskey and Rain' last year. His music video for this song currently has more than 4 million views on YouTube.

Travis Tritt

This country legend has been around the block a few times. Tritt has released seven studio albums since his debut in 1999.

Trace Adkins

In addition to his own extensive body of work, this country legend has collaborated with some of the biggest names in the game.

Lainey Wilson

Wilson is one of the brightest rising stars in country music right now. Her hit song 'Things A Man Outta Know' has been winning awards left, right, and center. She recently won Song of the Year at the ACMs.

Country Thunder officials announced a few more additions to the Iowa lineup on the morning of Tuesday, March 22nd.

It's a mixture of big name stars and returning Country Thunder favorites this time around. Here are the four new acts added to the list of performers at the Forest City festival.

Matt Stell

The 37-year-old country singer, songwriter, and guitarist released back-to-back hits with 'Prayed For You' and 'Everywhere But On' a few years ago. These successful songs made him one of only a few artists to have their first few songs reach the top of the charts.

Nolan Sotillo

If you don't know his name yet you better learn it quickly. Sotillo is a Country Thunder veteran. He performed at last year's festival and quickly earned himself a couple of new fans in that crowd (myself being one of them).

Jackson Dean

You might have heard a few of this Maryland native's songs before. One of Dean's songs 'Don't Come Lookin' was featured on an episode of the popular television show 'Yellowstone" this year.

John Morgan

If you're thinking...wait I feel like I've heard this name before you're not alone! Morgan is a successful singer and songwriter already. He is one of the talented artists behind the history-making Jason Aldean and Carrie Underwood duet 'If I Didn't Love You'.

He also toured with Aldean.

You're about to get to know him a bit more after he makes his national debut on the NBC program 'American Song Contest' this month. John Morgan is a North Carolina native and will be representing his home state on the national singing competition show.
