Following the triumphant return of summer’s country music extravaganza in August of 2022. Country Thunder Alberta returns with a jam-packed, all-star lineup featuring Keith Urban, Tim McGraw, Jon Pardi & so many more. The show returns to Fort Calgary next August 18th to 20th, 2023.
“The hiatus from one of our favourite places in the world to play was too long, and 2022 proved that the fans in Calgary will always be some of the best in the world,” says Country Thunder Music Festivals CEO, Troy Vollhoffer. “So, that calls for an even bigger and better party for 2023. With Keith Urban, Tim McGraw, and Jon Pardi, we have one of the best lineups from start to finish we’ve had in years, and we cannot wait for Summer 2023!”
Keith Urban, a two-time CMA Entertainer of the Year, has spent the better part of his life harnessing a deep-seated passion for music. This, combined with his authenticity, talent and driving musical inquisitiveness, helps to understand why he is one of the world’s most successful and well-respected artists. He’s won four GRAMMY© Awards, thirteen CMAs, fifteen ACMs, three AMAs, and two People’s Choice Awards and celebrated nine consecutive gold, platinum or multi-platinum albums. His concerts have become legendary – as unpredictable as they are explosive.
Tim McGraw is a Grammy Award-winning entertainer, author, and actor who has sold over eighty million records worldwide and dominated the charts with forty-four number-one singles. He is the most-played country artist since his debut in 1992, has four New York Times bestselling books to his credit and has acted in such movies as Friday Night Lights and The Blind Side. He is the founder and inspiration behind the health and fitness brand TRUMAV. McGraw is considered one of the most successful touring acts in country music history, and the countdown is on for his Country Thunder return!
CMA and ACM winning Singer/songwriter/producer Jon Pardi, has earned numerous #1 singles, including “Head Over Boots,” “Dirt On My Boots,” “Heartache on the Dancefloor,” “Heartache Medication,” and more. His album, Heartache Medication, solidified Jon Pardi’s place as country music’s neotraditionalist icon, with a refined and defined country sound that’s long on punch, and power.
Jon’s latest critically-acclaimed album Mr. Saturday Night featuring his hit #1 single, “Last Night Lonely” and the CMA nominated hit “Longneck Way To Go” was released in September. No doubt Pardi will bring the Party in 2023!
