Chris Janson headlines new event for Voyagers, University of Providence

The Voyagers and the University of Providence are launching a new annual event.

Summer in September is a partnership between the baseball team and the university as a fundraiser for the Argo athletic department.

The series kicks off Sept. 5 at Centene Stadium with Chris Janson.

Tickets are on sale now at www.gfvoyagers.com.

Previous stadium shows at the ballpark have included Eddie Money, Josh Turner, Aaron Tippin, RaeLynn and more.

Janson is a platinum-selling high-octane entertainer, multi-instrumentalist, award-winning singer/songwriter and the youngest living member of the Grand Ole Opry.

His sophomore album, Everybody, produced his second No. 1 hit single, “Fix A Drink,” the chart-topping follow-up to his No. 1 debut smash and summer anthem, “Buy Me A Boat.”

His current single, “Drunk Girl,” is climbing the country airplay charts while being hailed by the Tennessean as “a shoo-in for a Song of the Year nomination.”

Janson closed out the 53rd Academy of Country Music Awards with what Rolling Stone called a “must-see performance,” and he floored his audience at Stagecoach. Janson is currently on the “Life’s Whatcha Make It Tour” with Jake Owen, as well as doing his own headlining dates, which included a sold-out show at the historic Ryman Auditorium.

Tickets are $30 for stadium general admission, $35 for field tickets and you can also receive a $30 field ticket with a valid college ID. There will be food and drink vendors on the field.

Doors open at 5:30 p.m. on Sept. 5 with music starting at 6 p.m. There will be two opening acts to be announced in the coming weeks. For more information or tickets stop by Centene Stadium or call the Voyagers office at 406-452-5311.
