The 2015 Stagecoach country music festival was a sell-out this year, as some of Nashville's biggest names — and a few of rock's finest — took the stage at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, California — the same venue that hosted the eclectic Coachella music festival just a few days earlier. Dierks Bentley, Miranda Lambert, Tim McGraw and ZZ Top were just a few of the A-list artists who played the three-night event. After shooting exclusive behind-the-scenes portrait shots, Rolling Stone Country contributing photographer Joseph Llanes went front-of-house to capture those stars and more onstage action.
