For the past seven years, LSU Tiger stadium in Baton Rouge was the home of the Bayou Country Superfest but it has now moved down I-10 to New Orleans for 2017.  The Superfest is a three day event held on Memorial Day weekend and is always filled full of great country music from the biggest stars of country performing live inside Tigers Stadium.

Yesterday it was announced that the 8th annual Bayou Country Superfest will be moving to New Orleans from Baton Rouge.  The reason for the move is that LSU plans on doing renovations to Tigers Stadium after the football season.
