This past weekend, Coachella's country cousin the Stagecoach Music Festival set up its massive stages at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, California, for three days of country and Americana music. Against a desert landscape, with mountains rising in the distance, nightly headliners Tim McGraw, Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton performed for a sprawling crowd on the main stage, as rising artists like Chris Janson, Brothers Osborne and Nikki Lane got face time with fans on the festival's secondary platforms. Rolling Stone Country captured many of the artists backstage — from Dierks Bentley to Sturgill Simpson — for this exclusive behind-the-scenes gallery.
