One of the most successful brands in country is Country Thunder, a pair of festivals that take place in Twin Lakes, Wis., and Florence, Ariz. This year's Twin Lakes edition has booked Jason Aldean, Miranda Lambert, Brantley Gilbert and others. Neste Event Marketing president Gil Cunningham, who buys talent for eight country music fests including Country Thunder, is optimistic for sellouts at both Twin Lakes in 2014 and Florence in 2015 (April 9-12).
