Summerfest has announced Keith Urban and the Counting Crows as the latest Marcus Amphitheater headliners. Normally this is where we'd note that the two acts are headlining separate shows, except, in this case, they aren't: They're sharing the same bill. It's certainly a less likely pairing than the No Doubt/Paramore concert.

Summerfest has announced its second Marcus Amphitheater headliner for 2009 and it's... another country act. Kenny Chesney, the former Mr. Renee Zellweger and proud, oft-shirtless singer of the you-can't-make-this-up C&W hit "She Thinks My Tractor's Sexy," will top a July 3 bill that also features Miranda Lambert and Lady Antebellum. Tickets go on sale Saturday, Feb. 14 at 10 a.m. via Ti...

For most, the timing is more noteworthy than the announcement: Summerfest announced its first headlining act for 2009: George Strait, who will play the Marcus Amphitheater on Monday, June 29.
