America’s Freedom Festival at Provo is excited to welcome three-time Grammy Award-winning country music icon Tim McGraw to the 36th annual Stadium of Fire at LaVell Edwards Stadium. Few artists have shaped modern country music as profoundly as McGraw. With 36 No. 1 singles, the highest grossing tour in country music history and an impressive acting career all under his belt, McGraw brings a new level of entertainment to a jam-packed patriotic bash in Provo.
Tickets to Stadium of Fire will go on sale to the general public on Friday, March 25, at 9 a.m., at stadiumoffire.com and at the BYU Marriott Center ticket office in Provo. Members of the Freedom Festival’s email list will have the option to purchase tickets two days before the general public on Wednesday, March 23, so fans are encouraged to visit stadiumoffire.com now to sign up for advance ticket opportunities.
“We’re truly thrilled to invite Tim McGraw to Stadium of Fire for the first time,” said Paul Warner, Executive Director of America’s Freedom Festival. “He’s so beloved and respected not just in the country music world but right here in Utah. There’s no doubt in my mind this will be one of our best shows.”
Tim McGraw has sold more than 40 million records worldwide and dominated the charts with 36 No. 1 singles. He’s won three Grammy Awards, 16 Academy of Country Music Awards, 14 Country Music Association Awards, 10 American Music Awards, three People’s Choice Awards and numerous other honors. His iconic career achievements include being named the BDS Most Played Artist of the Decade for all music genres and having the Most Played Song of the Decade for all music genres with “Something Like That.”
McGraw is the most-played country artist since his debut in 1992, with two singles spending over 10 weeks at #1 (“Live Like You Were Dying” and “Over and Over”). His current single, “Top Of The World”, off his Damn Country Music album is his 58th top 10 single. His critically acclaimed acting skills were highlighted in the award winning Friday Night Lights and The Blind Side. McGraw most recently starred in Disney’s Tomorrowland.
In addition to the music of Tim McGraw, fans will love the patriotic festivities taking place at Stadium of Fire this year, from the beloved community dancers to the largest, loudest stadium fireworks show in the U.S.A.
The Stadium of Fire event, now in its 36th year, welcomes approximately 40,000 people to LaVell Edwards Stadium annually. The event will also be televised to over one million military men and women in more than 100 countries via the American Forces Network.
Combined with July 4th’s Grand Parade and the Freedom Days vendor market in downtown Provo, almost half a million people attend Freedom Festival events over the Independence Day weekend.
Stadium of Fire is presented by America’s Freedom Festival, a nonprofit, non-partisan organization supporting educational programs and events that promote freedom and democracy. For the 12th consecutive year, the event will be produced and directed by the award-winning production team of Baruch/Gayton Entertainment Group.
