Where has June gone? With just a week left to what’s been a hot month on our thermostats and with shows, I thought we should look forward. Check out 5 July country concerts in New England not to be missed, here!

What a summer it’s been already with shows like Hardy at Xfinity, Cole Swindell at Leader Bank Pavilion, the return of Jo Dee Messina to her native New England, Brantley Gilbert at the Cape Cod Melody Tent, Scotty McCreery at Indian Ranch and Elle King at the South Shore Music Circus. That’s just scratching the surface.

Country Concerts in New England Still To Come This Month

Even with just days left to this month, we still have Zach Bryan to look forward to this week at Gillette (he’ll be back next month). Zach Top performs at the Sinclair June 27. Closing out June with a bang it’s Elle King at the Cape Cod Melody Tent in Hyannis on June 29. And legendary duo Brooks and Dunn come to the Bank of New Hampshire Pavilion with on June 29. This is how we do summers in New England!

Looking Ahead Past July Country Concerts In New England

To quote Keith Urban, “It’s going to be a long hot summer.” August is jam packed with Kenny Chesney making his triumphant return to the birthplace of his No Shoes Nation, Gillette Stadium for 3 nights. Fans were beside themselves when our “adopted” country artist didn’t play here last year. He’s definitely making up for it with his mini-residency scheduled for August 23, 24 and 25. All is forgiven.

But wait, there’s more… lots more for country music fans like you and me. Chris Stapleton has his own mini-residency this August at the Bank of New Hampshire Pavilion. Dierks Bentley is headed our way in August and then there’s the return and final bow for Alan Jackson, who recently announced his last tour.

So, here comes July and it’ll light up New England like fireworks for country music lovers. Take a look at some of the shows coming up next month. Make your choices for which shows you have to see, and keep in mind you can enter to win tickets to some upcoming concerts right here. These are some of the hottest country concerts in New England, not to be missed.

  • 1. Walker Hayes

    July 7

    Cape Cod Melody Tent, Hyannis, MA


    Grammy nominated singer/songwriter and father of 6 will bring his infectious energy to the revolving stage under the tent. See him in Hyannis during your vacation week or make the trip, he is worth it! This man loves to dance and often brings his family on stage. Walker Hayes’ “Fancy Like” spent more than 6 months on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart and went top 5 on the all-genre Top 100 Songs chart. He’ll have you singing along with his first hit “You Broke Up With Me.” Dance in the aisle to “AA,” “Y’all Life” and “Good With Me.” This is a fun summer night on the Cape!


  • 2, Aaron Lewis

    July 13 & 14

    Indian Ranch, Webster, MA 


    Vermont born Aaron Lewis makes his annual pilgrimage to Indian Ranch for 2 nights. July 13 is sold-out, but you can still get tickets to see the former rocker turned Americana star for his July 14th show. The country outlaw and former lead singer of the alternative metal band Staind is a favorite at the Ranch.

  • 3. Zach Bryan

    July 17 

    Gillette Stadium, Foxboro, MA


    He’s baaack. After his June 26th show at Gillette sold out in minutes, Zach Bryan added a second date. So, get ready for another packed house. There are some seats still available if you’ve got a few hundred dollars to spare per ticket. I hear he puts on an amazing show, though. Zach Bryan is an unlikely star, he wasn’t aiming for all this success. The Navy veteran just liked to play for his friends and put his songs out on social media. And here he is now, one of the most popular artists in music. His stripped-down acoustic vibes and honesty are what draws fans in. His 2022 “Something in the Orange” went #1 on country and rock charts. He doesn’t fit any category of music and yet, he seems to fit them all.

  • 4. Luke Bryan

    July 18, 19 and 10

    Bank of New Hampshire Pavilion, Gilford, NH


    Get ready for the 5 time Entertainer of the Year winner setting up shop in New Hampshire for 3 nights this July. Luke Bryan loves playing this venue and the fans always show up and sell out the Pavilion. Since 2018 Luke has been an American Idol judge, but he keeps the music and the shows coming. Bryan is one of the world’s best selling music artists, with over 74 million records sold. And what a catalog of hits! From his 2007 debut single, “All My Friends Say” to his 8 times Platinum selling single, “Country Girl (Shake It For Me),” Luke has captured the world’s hearts with his music, humor and sweet dance moves. His new song, “Love You, Miss You, Mean It” is already top 25.

  • 5. Kane Brown

    July 20

    Fenway Park, Boston, MA


    No doubt, one of the hottest shows this summer is Kane Brown at Fenway Park. He brings with him, a headliner in his own right Jon Pardi. Plus, good time duo LOCASH will be there, and RaeLynn from season 2 of The Voice.  Kane has amassed over 15 hit singles and 11 of those have gone  #1. He performed at Fenway Park for the first time last year and couldn’t wait to return. The father of 3 (his son Krewe was born just last week) used to be shy on stage but he’s come a very long way. He loves performing and loves his New England fans. Don’t miss his iconic hits like “Heaven,” “What Ifs” and “I Can Feel It” live on stage in front of the Green Monster.
