Dust off your favorite pair of cowboy boots because the San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo is back Feb. 7-24. The event, which was established in 1949 and brings 2 million visitors to the AT&T Center every year, has released a live music lineup packed with country music stars and other national entertainers.

Opening the festival on Feb. 7 is Aaron Watson, the Amarillo-born singer and songwriter who made splash in 2017 with his last album Vaquero, which debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard country chart.

Other notable country artists on the bill include Martina McBride (Feb. 9), Brad Paisley (Feb. 15), and Lady Antebellum (Feb. 20).

If country music isn’t your cup of tea, the lineup also includes rocker Sammy Hagar with his band The Circle (Feb. 21), ranchero act La Adictiva (Feb. 17), and comedian Jim Gaffigan (Feb. 13).

Before the evening concerts, check out the carnival, rodeo, and livestock show, which feature a wide variety of activities, including pig races and a petting zoo, shopping, and a food court and wine garden. And, of course, what would a rodeo experience be without watching classic competitions like bull riding, bronc riding, and mutton bustin’?

Concert tickets start at $20, with season tickets available for a seat at every show.
