The Stagecoach Country Music Festival brought a taste of Nashville to the California desert over the weekend, as several of the genre's biggest names took the stage at the Empire Polo Club in Indio — the same venue that just cleaned up from Coachella a few days earlier. Jason Aldean, Luke Bryan (pictured here) and Eric Church headlined the three-night event, which also saw performances by Lee Brice, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Ashley Monroe, Jennifer Nettles and a long list of hit makers and up-and-comers. Rolling Stone went backstage and onstage to capture one of the biggest country fests of the year.
