Last.fm Trends: Stagecoach Stars Head-To-Head


The great and good of country music will all converge on the Empire Polo Club in Indio, California, this weekend for the Stagecoach Music Festival.

Miranda Lambert, Sheryl Crow and Blake Shelton will all tread the boards, but who’s the most hotly anticipated act of the weekend? Last.fm Trends takes a look.

When it comes to straight-up listener figures all of the weekend’s headliners have a pretty impressive reach. Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton both bost more than 3 million track plays according to Last.fm data, with Jason Aldean nudging ahead with 4,240,800.

But Sheryl Crow tops this shindig; she’s seen 11,319,858 plays from 971,091 listeners to date, her huge crossover success helping her to perform consistently strongly. But when it comes to recent activity, she’s not on top.

According to Last.fm data, Miranda Lambert has had a huge boost in listeners recently, pushing ahead of her fellow headliners after her Academy of Country Music Awards performance. Though she’s slipped recently she’s still performing strongly.

Meanwhile, Blake Shelton and Jason Aldean have been steadily climbing all year, gearing up for a strong summer of country classics.
