Tim McGraw will also perform a free outdoor concert on April 26th to kick off the NFL Draft, which is expected to draw more than 300,000 people to Nashville. According to WKRN.com (Nashville’s ABC affiliate), organizers are calling it “the largest festival footprint ever for an NFL Draft.” Gospel superstar CeCe Winans will sing the National Anthem to help open the Draft on April 25th.
Dierks, who is climbing the country charts with his new song “Living,” is in the midst of his Burning Man Tour. The trek is set to make stops in Toledo and Columbus, Ohio and Grand Rapids, Michigan next weekend.
The Arizona native received four ACM nominations, including his fourth nod for Album of the Year for The Mountain. Dierks is also nominated for “Burning Man” (featuring Brothers Osborne) in both the Music Event of the Year category and Video of the Year category, as well as for Male Artist of the Year. The 54th Academy of Country Music Awards, hosted by Reba, will air live from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas April 7th at 8pm ET/delayed PT on CBS.
