Country superstar Chris Stapleton is among the country acts set to perform at the the 2018 Pilgrimage Music and Cultural Festival.

This year, Stapleton will headline the two-day festival, set for Sept. 22 and 23, alongside Jack White and Lionel Richie. Other country acts set to perform at the Franklin, Tenn. event include Brandi Carlile, John Moreland, Caitlyn Smith, Tyminski, Aaron Lee Tasjan, Jillian Jacqueline, Joshua Hedley, Whitney Rose, Lilly Hiatt and Sarah Shook and the Disarmers.

Stapleton is a seasoned veteran of the festival. He previously played his own set in 2015 and surprised last year’s audience by joining headliner Justin Timberlake for a few songs. Fans will have to wait and see if Stapleton has any of his own surprises in mind for his headlining set.
