Grab your cowboy hats, Houston, because it’s time to start planning your RodeoHouston concert schedule.

The full line-up for the 2018 Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo dropped late last week at the NRG center.

This year, the famed rotating stage will feature six new acts, as well as 13 returning favorites.

First timers include notable acts, like pop band One Republic, country singer Kelsea Ballerini and singer-songwriter Alessia Cara, as well as Colombian reggaeton singer J. Balvin, Texas-native Leon Bridges and band Calibre 50.

In total, 15 of the performances will feature country music, set to take an all-new star-shaped stage, which will be unveiled for the first time this year.

County music legend Garth Brooks, returning since his last performance in 1993, will open and close the event, performing two of the 20 concerts on February 27 and March 18.

If you want to see the legend live in Houston, however, you’ll have to buy tickets from someone who already has them; both concerts went on sale in December, reportedly selling out in just 18 minutes.

For most concerts, tickets go on sale on January 11 at 10:00 a.m. on RodeoHouston’s website.
