When the weather heats up, so do the concerts. Country music fans love summer because it's the busiest time of year for touring artists, and summer 2018 promises to be thrilling for anyone who owns a cowboy hat and loves a good time.

Between the cross-country runs, fan fairs and country music festivals, there's no shortage of great live music available to see this year, but these are five shows you definitely don't want to miss. Kenny Chesney is undeniably one of the best live performers in music, and he'll revive his high-energy shows for another summer on his Trip Around the Sun Tour. The same can be said for Keith Urban, who's hitting the pavement hard with his Graffiti U World Tour, and Miranda Lambert and Little Big Town's Bandwagon Tour is also a must-see. See who else made our list of the 5 Hottest Country Tours of Summer 2018.
