BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — Country music stars Kenny Chesney, Florida Georgia Line and Jason Aldean headline this weekend's return of the Bayou Country Superfest to Baton Rouge, where it all began.

The annual Memorial Day weekend festival returns to LSU's Tiger Stadium on Saturday and Sunday after two years in New Orleans.

The Advocate reports Chesney, Florida Georgia Line, Dan + Shay and Cassadee Pope are on tap for Saturday's opening. Pope kicks off the show at 5:30 p.m. Aldean headlines Sunday, preceded by Kane Brown, Brett Young, Chase Rice and Parish County Line, starting at 5:15 p.m.

Single-day tickets start at $65 for general admission. Reserved seats start at $75.

Country icon George Strait drew 135,000 people, one of the largest crowds in the festival's history as part of his 2014 farewell tour.
