Yee-haw! Many of us will be dusting off our cowboy boots and getting ready to head to Indio, Calif., this weekend to see our country music favorites like Blake Shelton, Miranda Lambert and Tim McGraw at the annual Stagecoach Music Festival. While there will be many country superstars in attendance, there are quite a few new artists at this year's fest that you need to know about! Stagecoach has been known to bring up-and-coming artists to their Mane Stage—see what they did there?! In just the eight short years since the festival began, some of country's biggest artists have come into the spotlight. Can you believe Jason Aldean made his big break back in 2007 at this very festival?! Here are the three breakout artists that definitely need to be on your radar this year:
1. Clare Dunn: This country cutie is no stranger to the stage, as she has opened for Keith Urban, Florida Georgia Line, Dierks Bentley and Luke Bryan to name a few. Her debut single "Get Out" received lots of attention back in August 2014, climbing to No. 15 on the Country Music Row chart! Her newest single, "Cowboy Side of You," has been featured on Sirius XM's Fresh Female Voices. She will be performing on the Mane Stage on Saturday at 2 p.m. You don't want to miss it!

2. Logan Mize: You may recognize this country heartthrob from his appearance alongside Rachel Bilson on the CW's Hart of Dixie where he played himself in a good old fashioned Battle of the Bands at the Rammer Jammer—and he won, of course. His single "Used Up," debuted on SiriusXM as a Country Highway Find, and it not only got his fans going, but it also got attention on Twitter from Little Big Town! Mize has opened for Lady Antebellum, The Band Perry, LeAnn Rimes, Blake Shelton and this list goes on and on. He'll be hitting the Mane Stage on Friday at 2:45 p.m.

3. The Swon Brothers: If you're a fan of The Voice, then you're already familiar with this amazing duo. The Swon Brothers made their debut on season four of The Voice back in 2013. With the help of Team Blake, they made it into the top three! Of course, that wasn't the last we would hear from them. Their self-titled album debuted in October 2014, and they have since co-written songs with Lady Antebellum, toured with Brad Paisley, and were even nominated for Vocal Duo of the Year at this year's American Country Music Awards! You can catch this dynamic pair on the Mane Stage on Sunday at 2:50 p.m.
Stagecoach Country Music Festival kicks off Friday and wraps up on Sunday. Get those cowboy hats ready!
