The lineup for next year’s Stagecoach Festival has just been revealed, and it includes a few unexpected additions.

Earlier this month, Garth Brooks started dropping hints that he was headed to California’s biggest country music event. This morning (Sept. 13) he was confirmed as the final night headliner of the festival, which will be held April 27-29 at the Empire Polo Field in Indio, Calif.

In a rather surprising move, Florida Georgia Line has been tapped as the first night headliners, while Keith Urban will close out the second evening of performances. The festival has kept a focus on rising traditional and alt-country artists, so the decision to pick FGL as one of the year’s big names seems a little out of left field. Still, the duo is one of the most popular acts on the road right now. They’ll likely help to draw big numbers of festival goers next year.

Kacey Musgraves, Brothers Osborne and country legend Kenny Rogers are among the other artists slated to perform. You can see the full lineup below.
