Coachella's country cousin, the Stagecoach Music Festival ended on a major high note Sunday night. Luke Bryan headlined the last of three days of non-stop country and Americana music at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, California. Set against a gorgeous desert landscape, Bryan's stage was warmed up by the likes of Little Big Town, A Thousand Horses, the Doobie Brothers, RaeLynn and Old Dominion on Sunday. Rolling Stone Country contributing photographer Joseph Llanes had exclusive backstage access and brings us this incredible gallery from both behind the scenes and from the best seat in the house.

After checking out this photo gallery from Sunday's shows, click here for Llanes' Saturday Stagecoach gallery, including shots of Carrie Underwood and Chris Stapleton. And find Friday's photo gallery here, which has Sam Hunt, Snoop Dogg and Eric Church, just to name a few.
