Miranda Lambert will be making a triumphant return to Stagecoach, confirming to fans on Thursday September 7 that she will be headlining the 2024 festival for the first time in nine years.
The lineup for the 2024 Stagecoach Festival will also see Eric Church returning to open the festival on the Friday, and Morgan Wallen set to be a first-time headliner for the Sunday night.
"Stagecoach 2024. Let’s do this y’all!!" Miranda captioned her post, sharing a picture of the lineup – which includes Yellowstone's Luke Grimes and 90-year-old Willie Nelson – and fans were quick to share their excitement, including Little Big Town's Karen Fairchild who posted a series of fire emojis
"Wow awesome lineup," commented one fan as another quipped: "Coming to see the QUEEN @mirandalambert."
" This is the best lineup in yearssssss," a fan shared on Stagecoach's Instagram post, as another follower wrote: "Holy long list of all amazing people!"
"There is something so special about playing music when the sun goes down in the middle of the desert. The fans, the setup, the location— there really is no other festival like it. My band and I have had the chance to experience the magic that is Stagecoach a few times now, and we can't wait to be back in 2024," Miranda added.
It comes as Miranda was also nominated for Female Vocalist of the Year at the 2023 Country Music Association award, alongside Kelsea Ballerini, Ashley McBryde, Carly Pearce and Lainey Wilson.

Morgan shared: "Stagecoach is such a legendary festival, and I am honored to be headlining the final night. I have so many friends who never miss it and I know this will be a monumental weekend for all of us. Can’t wait to see everybody there.”
