2012 ACM New Artist of the Year nominee and special guest Hunter Hayes will be opening the show with his self-titled debut album. Hayes, who is known for his multi-talents as a musician, producer, and performer, has enjoyed the thrills of touring, most recently selling out venues across the US and Canada on his "Most Wanted" headline tour.
Tickets for the event are $65, $55 and $45.
