More big names have been added to an already stacked lineup for the iHeartRadio Country Festival in Austin. The broadcasting company announced Tuesday that Darius Rucker, Dierks Bentley, Little Big Town, The Band Perry, Justin Moore, Sam Hunt and Tyler Farr have joined the bill, completing an incredible showcase of today's hottest contemporary country artists.
