Lady Antebellum, Kid Rock Featured in NFL Kickoff Concert
On September 8 Lady Antebellum, Maroon 5 and Kid Rock will be performing in Green Bay, Wisconsin at the NFL’s Kickoff 2011 concert. The show, according to a report from the Associated Press, will be performed from a stage near Lambeau Field, where the Green Bay Packers- current Super Bowl Champions- play their home games. The game on Thursday night officially opens the NFL’s 2011 season.
Country music was represented last year by Taylor Swift in New Orleans at the concert. Harry Connick Jr. and the Dave Matthews Band joined Swift before the New Orleans Saints, last year’s Super Bowl champion, defeated the Minnesota Vikings by a score of 14 to 9. The concert this year will start at 7:30 pm ET. The game will air on NFL Network and NBC.
The gig is a high profile one and a great opportunity for Lady Antebellum to promote “Own the Night,” their forthcoming album. The set will be released on September 13. The country trio has scored a No. 1 hit already from the album, “Just a Kiss.” “We Owned the Night,” their follow-up single, after only one week is inside the Top 30 already. Lady Antebellum on Monday shared with their fans two brand new singles. One of the songs is currently available on iTunes.
