Well, there we have it; Luke Bryan has been announced as the fourth and final headliner of Windy City Smokeout 2023.

The CMA Awards 2022 Co-Host and American Idol judge joins Zac Bryan, Zac Brown Band and Darius Rucker in headlining and will play on Saturday July 15th.

The 'Country On' singer has recently responded to backlash he received for bringing Florida Governor Ron DeSantis out on stage during his concert in Jacksonville, Florida. The governor was there to, according to Bryan's statement; "raise awareness to help victims of a natural disaster", following the devastating effect of Hurricane Ian, which killed more than 100 people on September 28th.

Calling themselves "The best in Country Music, BBQ and Beer", the festival will take place from 13-16 July and will welcome tens of thousands of country music fans to the United Centre Parking Lot in Chicago for its tenth anniversary.

Bringing together all the best of country music, Windy City Smokeout is also home to one of the best celebrations of BBQ food and beer. As always, 2023's event will promise to host some of the finest pitmasters from across the country and even further throughout the world.
