5 Outdoor Country Concerts to Catch in April: Travis Tritt, Dwight Yoakam & More

by Jim Casey

After more than a year of canceled concerts, country music artists are beginning to creep back on stage for performances in April 2021, including outdoor shows by Travis Tritt, Dwight Yoakam, and more.

Check out our list of 5 Outdoor Country Concerts to Catch in April.

1. Travis Tritt: Abacoa Amphitheatre – April 1

Travis Tritt will be returning to his rockin’ ways when he takes the stage at the Abacoa Amphitheatre in Jupiter, Fla., on April 1. The Amphitheatre is a stone’s throw away (okay, four miles) from the Atlantic, so expect a beachy breeze to complement TT as he belts out “It’s a Great Day to Be Alive.”

2. Asleep at the Wheel: Nutty Brown Amphitheatre – April 10

Asleep at the Wheel will be keeping Austin weird during two shows at the Nutty Brown Amphitheater on April 10. Don’t fret if frontman Ray Benson shakes the concert venue’s surrounding hills and large oak trees with his brand of Western swing. It’s all part of the show, which AATW has been doing for more than 50 years.

3. Robert Earl Keen: St. Augustine Amphitheater – April 11

Texas troubadour Robert Earl Keen will bring his never-ending party to the St. Augustine Amphitheater on Anastasia Island on April 11. The Amp, as it’s known to locals, is just across the bridge from historic downtown St. Augustine. Did we mention it’s on an island? That’s a party.

4. Del McCoury Band: The Caverns – April 18

Billed as the “Greatest Show (Under) Earth,” The Caverns in Pelham, Tenn., is literally one of the coolest places to enjoy a concert.

While the cave shows have moved to their Above Ground Amphitheater for the time being, the venue is still a great place to catch a socially distanced show, including bluegrass legend Del McCoury and his merry band of pickers on April 18.

5. Dwight Yoakam: Whitewater Amphitheater – April 18

Dwight Yoakam will bring his hip-shaking brand of country music to the Whitewater Amphitheater in New Braunfels, Texas, on April 18. Enjoy the serenade of the Guadalupe River alongside the voice of the hillbilly-music maverick.

Whitewater, which is down the street from historic Gruene Hall, will also host concerts with Randy Rogers Band, Josh Abbott Band, and more in April.
