Country Star Luke Bryan Adds Second Performance at Michigan's WYCD Hoedown Due to High DemandSource: Facebook/Luke Bryan

Fans of country music can look forward to an extra day of twang and tunes at this year's 99.5 WYCD Hoedown, as the demand for Luke Bryan's charm and chart-toppers has led to the addition of a second show. Pine Knob Music Theatre in Clarkston, Michigan, will now play host to the "Play It Again" singer on both June 28 and 29. Tickets for the added date went on sale March 1 at 10 a.m, with FOX 2 reporting a rush of eager fans looking to secure their spot for an encore performance.

Initially set for a one-day affair, the festival expanded due to overwhelming public interest. The second show, as reported by WXYZ, booked by 313 Presents, not only features Bryan but also boasts a lineup including Alana Springsteen and Ella Langley. Chase Matthew and HunterGirl are slated to rock the main stage both days, adding an irresistible blend of new blood to an otherwise Bryan-heavy weekend.

Since its inception, the Hoedown has become a staple in Michigan's country music summer calendar. According to a statement obtained by Hoodline, Tim Roberts, Program Director at 99.5 WYCD, shared his excitement over Bryan's return, saying, "It’s a full circle moment to have our friend Luke Bryan return to the WYCD Hoedown! He was on his first single then and now brings 30 #1 hits to this epic show at Pine Knob! We couldn’t be more excited."

It's not just about the headliner though, with up-and-comers like Springsteen, Matthew, and HunterGirl sharing the spotlight, ensuring that the event delivers more than just a night under the stars with Luke Bryan. Still available are some tickets for the June 28 performance, but if you snooze, you may well lose, considering Bryan's status as the most digitally certified country artist, touting a career streaming upward of 21.2 billion times globally, according to a stats blast by Hoodline.

Those hoping to catch these acts live should act fast. The first set of tickets which went on sale February 16, are quickly becoming a hot commodity. As for the newly released tickets for June 29, they're expected to vanish just as quickly as the deep-fried delicacies at a country fair. For tickets and event details, fans are directed to the 313 Presents website or authorized ticket outlets.
