Opening for Anderson is Eric Paslay -- an up and coming country music artist who is well known for his hits "Friday Night" and "Song About A Girl" -- as well as two local acts, Tim Goodin and Nate Cornett.

Both Goodin and Cornett are excited about the chance to open for such a well-known country music star.

"I'm really excited and thankful for the opportunity to open up for a country music legend and I'm looking forward to it," said Goodin.

"To have the opportunity to showcase my music on the same stage as John Anderson is an honor," added Cornett. "The fact that I have the privilege of opening for someone who is such a big name in the country music industry is humbling to say the least."
