Let the bourbon flow and the good times roll!

Blake Shelton, Carrie Underwood, Dierks Bentley and Old Dominion are ready to lead Louisville, Kentucky, through the city’s second annual Hometown Rising Country Music & Bourbon Festival later this year — with special appearances from Billy Ray Cyrus, Jon Pardi and more.

“Always love coming to play Louisville because you love your country music and having a good time. Look forward to seeing y’all in September at Hometown Rising!” Shelton tells PEOPLE.

The two-day festival, produced by Danny Wimmer, was first introduced last year as way to celebrate two of the city’s cultural cornerstones — country music and iconic bourbon — and is now returning to Highland Festival Grounds on Sept. 12 and 13.

“We’ve had the pleasure of playing shows in Kentucky and the crowds always have so much energy. We’re looking forward to returning and getting back on that stage,” Old Dominion tells PEOPLE.

Cyrus adds, “I’ve always said I’m a singer-songwriter from Flatwoods, Kentucky, so I’m looking forward to coming back to my home state and playing Hometown Rising.”

Over 30 artists will perform across the festival’s three stages throughout the weekend, including Clint Black, Chris Janson, Russell Dickerson and more.

In addition to the star-studded performances, festival guests will have access to exclusive bourbon tastings and workshops with 23 different brands that include Kentucky Peerless, Old Forester, Coopers’ Craft and Jim Beam.
