The Top 12 Must-See Artists At This Year’s Windy City Smokeout Festival

Get ready country fans, July 14th-16th is going to be insane.

Chicago’s own Windy City Smokeout is about as good as a country music festival can get. Featuring some of country music’s best artists and the country’s best pit masters, Windy City Smokeout is, hands down, my favorite weekend of the year.

The lineup this year is unbelievable, but as with any 3-day festival, you might not have time to see every single artist. If that’s the case, here’s 12 you can’t miss.
