Sam Hunt is coming to Birmingham, and it's going to be a FREE concert! The crossover country star (and former UAB Quarterback) will play at the Uptown Arts and Entertainment District downtown Birmingham on September 1, 2017. Marren Morris and Ryan Follese will open the free show, which is scheduled the night before UAB Football's first game of the season.

“I love Birmingham and will always be a Blazer,” Hunt said. “I am honored to kick off the celebration of UAB Football with a big Friday night house party in Uptown. This return is an inspiration, and I’m ready to rock this city like UAB will rock A&M," Sam Hunt said in a UAB Football press release.

The Blazers return to the gridiron after the program was shut down in 2014. The concert is part of what the program has billed as "The Return," a celebration of the reinstatement of Blazer Football.

It is a free show, but tickets are required; tickets will be available as of 10 a.m. August 4th. Click HERE for more information.
