Eric Church will headline the 2018 Taste of Country Music Festival! Church is the yearly event's first announced headliner for 2018; fans at the 2017 iteration of the festival learned the news on Saturday night (June 10), prior to Miranda Lambert's headlining set.

A five-time ACM Awards winner, three-time CMA Awards winner and six-plus-time Grammy Awards nominee, Church has become known for his rocking brand of country music and incredible stage presence. The country star spent the first half of 2017 out on the road for his Holdin' My Own Tour; for the trek, Church opted out of bringing an opening act in favor of performing two sets each night -- a three-hour show in total. The 2017 Holdin' My Own Tour is (so far) the most-attended tour in the world in 2017, with more than 900,000 fans buying tickets.

The 2018 Taste of Country Music Festival is scheduled to take place June 8-10 at Hunter Mountain, in the Catskill Mountains of New York State. Fans at ToC Fest 2017 are now able to purchase tickets to next year's festival, and advance tickets for the fest will be on sale online on Monday (June 12), through Thursday (June 16) at 11:59PM ET.

Available during the ToC Fest 2018 advance ticket sales window are three-day general admission tickets, Outlaw tickets and Super Outlaw tickets, all with and without campground access. Those who purchase tickets with campground access will be included in the 2018 Taste of Country Music Festival camping pre-sale, which will take place in the fall, giving ticketholders first access to campsites for next year's festival.

The 2017 Taste of Country Music Festival runs through Sunday (June 11). Jason Aldean headlined Friday night (June 9), and Sam Hunt will close out the event on Sunday.
