Football fans will be descending on NRG Stadium in Houston ,Texas this weekend (Feb 2-5) for Super Bowl LI, when the New England Patriots take on the Atlanta Falcons. Country stars are also joining in the festivities with a few performances of their own.
With many parties going on in Houston, we compiled a list of country singers who will take part of the festivities. Sam Hunt performed Thursday night (Feb. 2) at Club Nomadic and Tracy Byrd and Mark Chesnutt played that same night at former Houston Oilers quarterback Dan Pastorini’s party—Pastorini’s Super Party 2017—which is an event that raises money for various charities.
If you’re heading to Houston for the biggest professional football game of the year, this is where you can find some down home country music.
