Back at GIE+EXPO for a fourth year, The Crashers, will kick things off at the Tuesday night concert. With two No. 1 singles, multiple awards and nominations, plus performances on some of the biggest stages in the world, Wednesday night headliner Easton Corbin has made a lasting impression on the country music landscape. His debut album, released in 2010, spawned back-to-back hits “A Little More Country Than That” and “Roll With It.” Corbin spent 2016 on one of the biggest tours in country music: Carrie Underwood’s The Storyteller Tour.

Rising star JD Shelburne has opened for many national acts, including Miranda Lambert, Montgomery Gentry and Kellie Pickler—and will delight GIE+EXPO attendees as Thursday night’s opener.

Grammy nominee Cassadee Pope will round out the concert series as the Thursday headliner. Her powerhouse voice, inimitable presence and endless charm have transformed Pope into a force of nature beloved by millions worldwide thanks to her victory on Season 3 of NBC’s The Voice. Her 2013 full-length debut, Frame by Frame, with its lead single “Wasting All These Tears” bowed at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums Chart and Top 10 on the Billboard 200 all-genre chart.
