The Northwell Health at Jones Beach Theater schedule just added took on a serious twang.

Luke Bryan, Florida Georgia Line, Dierks Bentley, Brad Paisley and Jason Aldean are all set to play the Wantagh amphitheater this summer, with tickets for all five shows being sold as Live Nation’s 2019 Country Megaticket package starting on Friday, Jan. 25.

Tickets for each show will go on sale separately at a later date.

Bryan, the “What Makes You Country” star and “American Idol” judge, will hit Jones Beach on July 13, with pals Cole Swindell and Jon Langston, as part of his “Sunset Repeat” tour, which gets going after some stadium dates and his “Crash My Playa” festival in Mexico.
