Morgan Wallen is set to headline a massive show at Bristol Motor Speedway in Bristol, Tennessee on Saturday, October 30, 2021.
Wallen announced the news via a video on Country Thunder’s social media profiles late Saturday (Sept. 18) evening.
“What’s going guys, It’s Morgan Wallen, I’m so excited to hit the stage in my home state of Tennessee,” Wallen said in the clip. “I’m taking over Country Thunder Bristol at Bristol Motor Speedway on October 30. I’ll be bringing some of my boys with me and it’s going to be one hell of a homecoming. I can’t wait to see y’all there.”
Dubbed Morgan Wallen’s Country Thunder Takeover, the event will also feature special guests Granger Smith (feat. Earl Dibbles Dr.), Larry Fleet, Jon Langston and ERNEST.
The Bristol Motor Speedway website reads, “Morgan Wallen and some of his buddies are coming to Bristol Baby! Standing event in the infield at Bristol.”
Tickets go on sale Tuesday, September 21 at 8 am CT. Camping and parking options will also be available.
This event is one of five festivals hosted by Country Thunder, including Florida, Arizona, Iowa, Wisconsin.
The show announcement comes after Wallen’s official return to the stage, which came earlier this month with the Morgan Wallen & Friends benefit concert in support of of those impacted by the recent devastating flooding in Middle Tennessee.
The East Tennessee native was joined by Dierks Bentley, HARDY, Cole Swindell, Lainey Wilson, Josh Thompson, ERNEST, Ben Burgess, Jared Mullins and Lathan Warlick at Nashville’s Marathon Music Works for a sold-out show that raised over $725,000 for The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee and the Tennessee Emergency Response Fund.
