McGraw, Owen to Headline Winstock ’22; Tickets On Sale Now

SPONSORED POST – We had fun in ’21, and now Tim McGraw, Jake Owen, Brothers Osborne, Jimmie Allen, Gary Allan, Neal McCoy, Little Texas, MacKenzie Porter, Larry Fleet, Walker County, and more cannot wait to see you for our return to June at Winstock ’22.


Tickets are now on sale for the 28th Winstock Country Music Festival, which will take place Friday-Saturday, June 17-18, 2022, in Winsted, and the artist lineup was announced this morning.

“We are stoked to have the caliber of artists that are signed to join us in 2022,” said Winstock Country Music Festival Chairman Dave Danielson. “If you add up all the number one hits these artists have had over the years, it might be the most ever heard from the Winstock stage in one weekend.”

Forty four of those number-one hits alone belong to McGraw, who is arguably one of the most recognizable and popular names in country music. In addition to being country music’s most played artist since his debut in 1992, McGraw is also a best-selling author and actor.

“We’ve been working for years to have Tim McGraw at our event, and we are very excited for him to make his debut on the Winstock stage for what is sure to be a special night,” Danielson said.

The rest of the lineup blends old favorites with some of the hottest artists in country music today. Brothers Osborne reclaimed their title of Vocal Duo of the Year at the recent Country Music Awards, and Jimmie Allen was named New Artist of the Year.

“We were all watching the awards and crossing our fingers for those guys,” Danielson said. “Plus when you have Jake Owen, Neal McCoy, Gary Allan, and Little Texas all on the same lineup, it’s sure to be a weekend not to miss.”

Complete artist bios, official links, and schedule can be found at More artists will be announced in the months to come.


VIP tickets sold out at this year’s event for 2022. A very limited number of reserved seats are now on sale, as are the best selection of camping sites, so plan now to get your tickets and camping passes secured early for next year’s event.

“Based on this year’s sell out, and the record number of orders placed at this year’s event for next year, we are well on our way to another potential sellout,” Danielson said. “This includes general admission tickets – we sold more of those this year at the event than we ever have before, so please don’t delay in getting your tickets.”

Tickets may be purchased online at or by calling (320) 485-4287. Please be patient if calling as volunteer phone operators anticipate a high call volume and will respond to calls/messages in the order received.
