Beaver Stadium is going to host more than just football in 2017.
Penn State announced earlier this year that a concert will be held at the school’s enormous, 107,282-seat stadium, and on Saturday night, the performers were announced. The news will make country music fans rejoice.
Blake Shelton will headline the first ever “Happy Valley Jam,” Penn State said during its 41-14 win over Iowa. Shelton has won multiple Country Music Association awards and was named the Male Vocalist of the Year by the CMA for five straight years from 2010-14.
“We are elated to welcome Blake Shelton and a tremendous lineup to the first-ever concert in Beaver Stadium,” Penn State athletic director Sandy Barbour said in a statement. “We have been resolute in our efforts to make our first stadium event unique. The Happy Valley Jam will be an historic day for Central Pennsylvania and we can’t wait!”
Shelton is part of a lineup that also features fellow country star Chris Young and popular duo Big & Rich. Full details about the concert, including how to buy tickets, can be found on HappyValleyJam.com.
