BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

Organizers of the Bayou Country Superfest said a record number of people attended the 2014 event.

They reported more than 135,000 fans gathered at Tiger Stadium over the three-day period of the fifth annual concert and festival. Friday's concert featuring the legendary George Strait and Reba McEntire was sold out.

"It was a great honor to present George Strait, the King of Country, in Tiger Stadium during the last leg of his final tour," said Quint Davis, the producer and director of the festival. "Luke Bryan, Jason Aldean, Eric Church, Florida Georgia Line and the other artists who appeared all contributed to making this year's Bayou Country Superfest an historic event."

One of the most popular artists to take the main stage was Louisiana native Hunter Hayes, who performed Sunday before the huge crowd.

Producers said next year's event will return to being a two-day event. It is scheduled for May 23 and May 24.
