Brad Paisley, Kenny Chesney and More Part of ‘GMA’ 2016 Summer Concert Series
Some of country music's biggest stars will take part in Good Morning America's 2016 summer concert series. The TV morning show's annual concerts will, in 2016, feature a plethora of acts from all different genres -- but the most exciting part, for country fans at least, is the four country superstars who are in the mix.
After GMA's summer concerts begin on May 20 with pop singer Ariana Grande, Brad Paisley will be the first country singer to perform as part of the weekly series, which takes place every Friday during the summer months. Paisley's performance is scheduled for June 24, with Kenny Chesney (July 8), Keith Urban (August 12) and Jason Aldean (August 26) also slated to appear.
The year 2016 marks GMA's summer concerts' eighth year at Rumsey Playfield in New York City's Central Park. The event will also feature artists such as Demi Lovato, Pitbull, Sia, Iggy Azalea and more. For further information on tickets, show times and more, visit ABC News.
Fans not able to make it to the Big Apple-based concert series will still have plenty of chances to see all four country stars live this summer: Paisley, Aldean, Urban and Chesney all have big summer tours scheduled. Paisley recently announced his 2016 Life Amplified Tour, with special guests Tyler Farr and Maddie & Tae, while Aldean has a huge summer ahead thanks to his 2016 Six Strings Circus Tour. He recently added another Fenway Park date to that trek.
Urban's Ripcord World Tour kicks off on June 2, and he'll later tour Australia, playing a series of dates that will also feature Carrie Underwood. Chesney, meanwhile, is prepping his new record, Some Town Somewhere, due out on July 8, and is currently on the road for the 2016 Spread the Love Tour, with Miranda Lambert, Sam Hunt and Old Dominion.
