The Jacksonville Jaguars today announced Country music star Clint Black will headline at their inaugural country music festival Jags Country to be held at the OVO Arena Wembley, on Thursday September 28th. Celebrating their tenth game in the Capital, the Jacksonville Jaguars hope the event will bring fans of NFL and Country music together to enjoy an evening of entertainment from U.S and U.K artists, alongside Jaguars alumni, Jaxson De-Ville and the ROAR cheerleaders. Country legend, Clint Black will headline the show supported by Diamond selling Brian Kelley; other exciting acts joining the lineup are promising Country artist Tyler Rich, London based American artist Alyssa Bonagura, and the Northern Irish duo Dea Matrona. Hosted by the Jaguars own JP. Shadrick, the evening will combine football and music through on-stage performances and conversations. With themed refreshments and Jaguars merchandise on offer, the event will showcase all things Jacksonville Jaguars, with Country music providing fantastic entertainment throughout the night.
Clint Black said: “I’m very excited and honored to be headlining Jags Country. I’ve always had great experiences in the UK, but I’m sure this will be the most exciting! Many thanks to the Jaguars for inviting me to be a part of their special event.” Maria Gigante, VP of UK Operations for the Jaguars, added: “Commemorating the Jaguars’ tenth game in London was something we were determined to celebrate in an exciting new way, and we believe Jags Country is just that. The line up of top-class U.S and U.K talent, alongside our own beloved alumni promises to be a special evening for both Jaguars and Country fans. “This year is unique with the game against the Falcons at Wembley stadium is followed by a road game a week later, a first in the NFL international series, and it was our ambition to deliver great events for our fans to enjoy while the team are in the U.K. The concert on the 28 th will provide a platform for us to enjoy a spectacular ten days of the Jaguars in London.”ABOUT BRIAN KELLEY: With the big, bright anthemic delivery of his new single, “See You Next Summer,” DIAMOND-selling superstar Brian Kelley enters the next chapter of a record-breaking, history-making career. Currently in the studio working on his full-length debut album with Big Machine Records, he first made waves with his independently released passion project SUNSHINE STATE OF MIND in 2021 (which American Songwriter called “some of the best modern country put to tape.”) With a sold-out run of shows and back-to-back residencies at Tribe Kelley Surf Post in Grayton Beach, FL – owned by the Ormond Beach native and his wife Brittney – Kelley continues to diversify his thriving enterprise with collaborations including cult-favorite brand Tribe Kelley with Brittney and a partnership with Oyster City Brewing Company. Kelley is managed by Kevin Spellman and Jason Murray of Vector Management. First known as the Florida half of the GRAMMY-nominated Florida Georgia Line, the ACM Breakout Artist of the Decade Award recipients garnered 19 career #1s and became the first and only act to achieve two RIAA DIAMOND singles in Country music history (14X PLATINUM #1s: “Cruise” and “Meant to Be” with Bebe Rexha). Surpassing 17 billion global streams, selling more than 40 million tracks and 4.8 million albums worldwide, plus playing to over 4 million fans, FGL has been honored by AMA, Billboard, CMA, and CMT Music Awards, as well as having a Florida Georgia Line: Mix It Up Strong exhibit at Nashville’s Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum. ABOUT TYLER RICH: Northern California-raised, Nashville-rooted Tyler Rich found his love of music gathered around a Christmas tree alongside family singing holiday classics and Creedence Clearwater Revival. Fast forward to graduating college with a degree in Economics, Tyler moved to LA to pursue a different game of numbers – music – exploring various genres with songwriting and bands before taking the leap as a solo artist. Since, Tyler has amassed nearly half a billion global streams to date and notched three No. 1 hits on SiriusXM’s The Highway with his debut album TWO THOUSAND MILES (The Valory Music Co.), featuring GOLD-certified “The Difference” plus subsequent releases “Better Than You’re Used To,” “A Little Bit of You” and“Trucks Don’t Lie.” Delivering three brand new songs earlier this year with his I KNOW YOU DO EP, Tyler gives fans the best of both worlds fusing the spirit of youth with an easy-going buzz on the project produced by The Cadillac Three’s Jaren Johnston. Most recently, Tyler shared another EP UNPLUGGED IN NASHVILLE, a five-song collection of reimagined versions of fan-favorite tracks through the years. One of the songs highlighted was the namesake of Tyler’s 2022 headline tour “Thinkin’ We’re in Love,” enlisting rising singer/songwriter Alexandra Kay for the stateside duet of his Top 5 Canadian hit featuring one of Canada’s most successful bilingual singer-songwriters, Marie-Mai. Tyler’s music embodies the feelings all people have in common – the need for acceptance, devotion and a place to call their own – and that empathetic spirit extends to animals too. With Rich Rescues, Tyler visits local shelters while out on the road to raise awareness for pet adoption. For a full list of tour dates and more, visit Tylerrich.com.
