Jana Kramer and Dakota Bradley will kick off the concert, produced by S.A.W. Events. McGraw is expected to be all the rage this summer after earning three consecutive number one hits. His tour sold out in 2013, and he began this year with his new single “Lookin’ For That Girl.”
“This last year was unbelievable, and I don’t have any plans to let off the gas now. We didn’t want to waste any time getting new music out,” McGraw said in a statement on the CornBelters website, enthusiastic to get started on his tour.
“With every album, my approach is to push a few of my own boundaries and try things I’ve never done before. It was hard to choose a lead single off this project because I really felt like we had six or seven good options. I kept coming back to ‘That Girl’ because even though it may be a little different for me sonically, I couldn’t get it out of my head.”
McGraw’s accomplishments over the years include selling over 40 million albums, winning three Grammy’s, 14 American Country Music Awards, 14 Country Music Awards, and 10 American Music Awards.
One of his latest number-one songs is the platinum selling hit “Highway Don’t Care” with Taylor Swift that features Keith Urban on guitar.
“We are thrilled to be hosting what will be one of the largest, if not the largest individual concert in the Central Illinois history,” said CornBelters President Steve Malliet.
“Our fifth anniversary season is going to be special and this will put a cap on it for us. We have many big announcements coming soon, so this is exciting to get the first one out.”
