The wait is almost over, on July 9th, at Bobcat Stadium here in Bozeman, Kenny Chesney will finally take the stage, and Montana's Best Country, 100.7 XL Country will be there to welcome you.

While there will be several different concerts around Montana this summer, none will be bigger than this one and XL Country is excited to announce that we've teamed up with MSU to host the XL Country Kenny Chesney Pre Show Party at Bobcat Stadium.!

That's right, the biggest party of the summer just got bigger!

All of the fun will kick off at 4 pm on Saturday, July 9th at Bobcat Stadium. The XL Country Kenny Chesney Pre Show Party will be set up over by Gate 8, right next to the Plaza. There will be multiple food trucks, beverage and beer stands, plus, tons of Kenny Chesney merchandise for you to purchase.

You will want to stop by the XL Country tents as we will have a ton of prizes to give away, including the chance to win a pair of exclusive, sold-out pair of "Sandbar" tickets to be front and center for the show. Oh, and did we mention that we'll be giving away a guitar from Music Villa that will be signed by Kenny Chesney, Old Dominion, and Carly Pearce to the person showing the most Kenny Chesney pride?

That's right! We'll be on the lookout for the biggest Kenny Chesney fan, and that person will win the signed guitar.

Chesney, who has had over 30 number one hits brings along Old Dominion and Carly Pearce to Bozeman and Montana, which will be his first concert in the state in over a decade. The concert will kick off at 6 pm and there will be breaks between the acts, which will allow folks to come back into the designated XL Country pre-party area to grab a bite to eat, get a drink, or buy a t-shirt or some other merchandise.
