5 must-see acts at Route 91 Harvest festival

With the Route 91 Harvest returning to the Las Vegas Strip this weekend, here are five must-see acts:

Jason Aldean

Aldean returns to close out Route 91 once again — he ended the festivities in 2014 as well — with guitars as big as the jacked-up pickups he sings of.

Eric Church

Country’s leading contemporary renegade will continue to make his case for why he’s “Mr. Misunderstood” with his headlining set Friday.

Sam Hunt

Hunt’s only recently graduated to festival headliner status. But his crossover country-pop smash “Body Like a Back Road” has propelled him from said back roads to life in the fast lane, having topped Billboard’s Hot Country Songs for over 30 weeks, the longest run ever.

Maren Morris

Morris won’t just warm the stage for Hunt on Saturday, she’ll elevate its temperature to that of a bed of hot coals with her alternately punchy and poignant songbook.

Bobby Bones and the Raging Idiots

You’ll laugh, you’ll cry (from laughing), when these country music cut-ups bring some levity to Route 91 on Saturday.

From Austin, Texas with a love of reverb comes psych rockers The Black Angels, whose climactic jams were as outsized as their home state.
