The headliners for Rock the South 2023 have been unveiled, with Chris Stapleton, Zach Bryan, Cody Johnson and Riley Green all set to take centre stage at the July festival. Stapleton will serve as the event's overall headliner, with the other three country heavyweights contributing towards a bill that already looks set to be a 2023 festival highlight.

Stapleton recently took home a record-setting sixth Male Vocalist of the Year Award at the 2022 CMAs, and also announced that he would be releasing a brand new single, 'I'm A Ram'. Alongside Stapleton, Johnson and Green, fans will also be excited to witness Zach Bryan's Rock the South debut, particularly after his iconic show in the snow at Red Rocks Amphitheater, Colorado earlier in November.

Joining Rock the South 2023's star-studded line-up in Cullman, Alabama will be Bailey Zimmerman, Travis Tritt, Jo Dee Messina, Chase Matthew, Drake Milligan, Mackenzie Carpenter and more. The three-day festival will take place on July 20-22 2023.

2023 will mark the first time Rock the South will be a three-day event, after being initially set up as a one-off fundraiser in 2011 for victims of Alabama's Super Outbreak of tornadoes. Since its inception, the festival has donated over $600,000 to local charities including The Link, Alabama Forever, Brook’s Place, Children’s Hospital of Alabama and more.

The 2022 edition of the festival featured a similarly impressive roster of big-name acts, such as Morgan Wallen, Alabama, HARDY and Jimmie Allen.

Tickets for Rock the South 2023 are available on November 11th and can be purchased here.
