Country music is in our minds and ears this week in Las Vegas as the annual three-day Route 91 Harvest Festival returns to the Strip, but there’s much more on the way. The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas and iHeartRadio recently announced the Boots on the Boulevard concert series coming to the Chelsea during Wrangler National Finals Rodeo week in December.

CMA Triple Play Award winner Cole Swindell will kick things off with a show on December 8, followed by Tennessee’s “Small Town Boy” Dustin Lynch on December 10. The legendary Dwight Yoakam takes the Chelsea stage on December 13, bringing his classic material from more than 21 albums and compilations. Wrapping up Boots on the Boulevard is none other than 14-time Grammy nominee Dierks Bentley, who plays two shows for the big rodeo weekend on December 15 and 16.

The Cosmopolitan is an official hotel sponsor of WNFR and will also host live viewing parties at the CG Technology Race & Sports Book all week long. For more information on special events and the concert series, visit
