He’s always wanted to play the festival in Indio, California, but major tours with Luke Bryan, Florida Georgia Line and others over the last few years have kept him from playing the event.

“I’ve always missed it either because of the tour I was on or I had something else going on,” Swindell tells CMT.com. “Every artist you can ever dream of has played it. I’m just thankful that this is my chance.”

The schedule for Dierks Bentley’s What the Hell Tour has Swindell, Bentley and Jon Pardi playing night one of Stagecoach on Friday (April 28).

Swindell wishes he could stay to see Shania Twain headline on Saturday night (April 29). The What the Hell Tour will be in Fresno, California, during her Stagecoach performance, which will include her biggest hits plus new songs from her first album in 15 years. The collection lands in September and its lead single “Life’s About to Get Good” arrives at radio in June.

“I still haven’t seen a Shania show,” Swindell admits. “I’ll never forget when ’Any Man of Mine’ came out. I was like, ’Who is this?!’ Now I’m getting to do what she’s done for years and getting to play shows — except she’s on a different level than I am.”
