Country music star Sam Hunt will July 1 with special guests Kane Brown and Conner Smith. Tickets for the show go on sale Friday at 10 a.m.
Hunt has won several awards, including an American Music Award and a CMT Music Award. This year, he is nominated for a Grammy for best country solo performance for his hit “Body Like a Back Road,” which also is up for best country song at Sunday’s ceremony.
