OSHKOSH – EAA AirVenture Oshkosh will host a pair of country acts for its annual opening night concert this summer. Dustin Lynch and Maddie & Tae will play Boeing Plaza after the fly-in convention’s first air show on July 23. 

The hugely popular aviation celebration that draws visitors from around the world returns for its 66th year July 23-29.

Access to the kickoff concert is included with all July 23 admissions. Maddie & Tae will play at 6 p.m. and Lynch will follow at 7:15. 

Lynch became a known entity in 2012 thanks to the hit “Cowboys and Angels,” which hit No. 2 on the country chart. He’s since had a run of No. 1 country singles, including “Where It’s At (Yep, Yep)” and “Small Town Boy.” The latter earned him a Billboard Music Awards nomination for Top Country Song. His third album, “Current Mood,” was released in September.

Maddie & Tae are the duo of Madison Marlow and Taylor Dye, who emerged with “Girl in a Country Song” in 2014. That scored them a Country Music Association Award in 2015. Last year they earned two Academy of Country Music Awards nominations for Vocal Duo of the Year and New Vocal Duo or Group of the Year.

Last year’s kickoff concert headliner was Barenaked Ladies. Past bookings include Third Eye Blind, Dierks Bentley, REO Speedwagon and the Beach Boys.
