For the first time ever, Kroger Field in Lexington will be a concert venue. And the maiden voyage, so to speak, will star Chris Stapleton, Willie Nelson, and Sheryl Crow.

According to WKYT-Lexington, the April 25th concert will feature Nelson, Crow, and country newcomer Yola as opening acts with Johnson County, Kentucky native Stapleton as the headliner.

UK and Live Nation made the joint announcement amid much anticipation for a first ever concert at the Wildcats' football stadium.

Tickets will go on sale Friday, October 11th at 10AM Eastern with all proceeds earmarked for Stapleton's charity, the Outlaw State of Mind Hometown Fund, which supports "local and national organizations impacting Kentucky."
