RodeoHouston has officially announced most of its star entertainer lineup just now, although earlier today several media outlets reported versions of leaked lists that had been received. This is the second consecutive year in which the list has been leaked early.

Willie Nelson is scheduled to come in the second day and despite being here rather recently at Smart Financial Centre in Sugar Land where he drew a crowd, will probably attract a lot of attention from early ticket buyers.  Gwen Stefani, whose main country connection is through boyfriend Blake Shelton, will probably also be a hot item.

Khalid, who has had a very big year is coming. And then there's the South Korean boy group NCT 127

Three female artists are on the list: Maren Morris (country, pop), Becky G (pop, hip hop, Latin, dance-pop, pop-rap) and Stefani (pop, R&B, electronica, ska, new wave, rock). The names filling three other slots won't be announced till February 4.
