Every year during the last weekend in April, the Empire Polo Club holds a three-day country music festival in Indio, California. This is the Coachella of Country music with major singers such as Thomas Rhett, Kip Moore, Shania Twain, Kenny Chesney, and Dierks Bentley performing. This was my fourth year going and it was one of the best years I’ve ever been to. A ton of people I know did not like the line up this year because it was not mainstream pop country artists, but instead it was some of the older artists, which ensured that everyone attending was a major country fan. The only downside was that the food was a little over priced; a burger with no fries was about $13. Other than that I had an amazing time dancing and listening to some of my favorite country artists!
