Chris Stapleton & Thomas Rhett to Perform at 2017 iHeartRadio Festival

Chris Stapleton and Thomas Rhett have a new favorite number — lucky No. 7. The two country stars are heading to the Seventh Annual iHeartRadio Music Festival.

The festival takes place on September 22 and 23 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. Stapleton is scheduled to perform on September 22, while Rhett is featured as one of the closing acts on September 23. The festival will have two stages; one for the headlining acts like Stapleton and Rhett and another stage in the Daytime Village for other stars and notable openers.

The end-of-summer bash is hosted by Ryan Seacrest, and features top stars from other genres such as Coldplay, The Weeknd, Harry Styles, Lorde, and Kesha.

Both Stapleton and Rhett have had thriving careers over the last few years. Stapleton's Double Platinum Traveller album from 2015 won Album of the Year at the Academy of Country Music Awards, and his recently released album, From A Room: Vol. 1, also debuted at No. 1 on the Canadian Albums Chart and No. 2 on the US Billboard 200 chart. The “Die A Happy Man" singer-songwriter released his breakthrough certified Platinum Tangled Up album in 2015, which debuted on the US Billboard 200 chart at No. 6 and Top Country Albums chart at No. 3.

At last year's festival, Sam Hunt and Florida Georgia Line rocked the stage, and this year's show-stopping headliner performances from Stapleton and Rhett will only build on country music's ever-increasing popularity.

Stapleton's upcoming record From A Room: Volume 2 is due out later this year and Rhett is still on his Home Team Tour as well as set to release his follow up album to Tangled Up in the fall.
