If I were going to Stagecoach this weekend, here are the acts that I would try to catch. Some are obvious – Steve Earle, Merle Haggard, ZZ Top, Hot Rize, Kacey Musgraves and Miranda Lambert. And some not so – Lindi Ortega, Lydia Loveless, Nikki Lane, Caitlin Rose, Daniel Romero, John Moreland, Lone Bellow, Andrew Combs, Handsome Family, Ben Miller Band, Devil Makes Three…oh, let me just stop there and give you my picks.
