(DULUTH, Ga.) – The 2017 NLL World Champion Georgia Swarm is proud to announce that country music superstar Scotty McCreery will perform during Country Night presented by JT Stratford on Saturday, Feb. 17. The night will feature both a 10-minute halftime and 30-minute postgame performance from McCreery in the Atlanta Classic Cars Mercedes–Benz Goal Zone Club when the Swarm hosts the Toronto Rock for a 7:05 p.m. ET showdown.
Lower Level Tickets to see Country Night featuring Scotty McCreery at Harrah’s Cherokee Casino Field at Infinite Energy Arena start as low as $25 and can be purchased online at GeorgiaSwarm.com/CountryNight or by calling 844-4-GASWARM. Early arriving fans will also receive Cowbells courtesy of JT Stratford.
“It’s our goal to give our fans the best possible gameday experience,” Swarm Co-Owner and President Andy Arlotta said. “As we were planning our inaugural Country Night, we knew it was a natural fit to welcome a major artist to The Hive as country music has such strong roots here in Georgia. With that said, we’re thrilled to welcome Scotty McCreery, who is from the Southeast and is one of the nation’s hottest country artists. Scotty has produced countless hits on the radio, and with the release of his new album in March, the timing couldn’t be anymore perfect to have him at The Hive.”
“I am looking forward to performing at the Infinite Energy Arena as part of the first ‘Country Night’ for the fans of the Georgia Swarm,” said McCreery. “As a former athlete and life-long sports fan, I am always up for being part a night that includes both music and sports.”
McCreery is the second of three artists in the Swarm’s 2017-18 Concert Series. Georgia welcomed 2 Chainz back on Dec. 30 during the Home Opener and will announce another major artist in the coming days for Faith and Family Night on Sunday, April 8 at 4:05 p.m. ET.
