The Grammy Award-winning country music group Lady Antebellum will play at the Walmart Arkansas Music Pavilion in Rogers on Aug. 5. Country pop singer Kelsea Ballerini, nominated this year for a Best New Artist Grammy, and country singer-songwriter, Brett Young, will also perform.

The “You Look Good” world tour, presented by NABISCO, is comprised of 65 shows in six countries, according to a press release from the AMP. The group decided to tour together after taking last year to pursue solo projects, according to the AMP.

“We knew after the time off that we wanted to get back out on the road in a big way,” group member Charles Kelley said in the press release. “We couldn’t be more ready to get back out there with the fans and hopefully make a few new ones too.”

Lady Antebellum’s “You Look Good” single is in a way a departure musically from its previous songs, the group says.

“We’ve always loved experimenting with different instruments and sounds in the studio, but we’ve never used horns before,” group member Dave Haywood said in the press release. “The energy they brought to this song is really fun and was validation for all three of us that it had to be our first single back.”

The single is part of Lady Antebellum’s “Heart Break” album, which will be released on June 9.

“We knew right away that we had to name this album after a track that is a play on the word ‘heartbreak,’” group member Hillary Scott said the press release. ”It’s all about those personal growths everyone goes through, and it was liberating to get back in the studio with Charles and Dave to intertwine those feelings into the recording process. … I feel like we’ve reemerged stronger than ever and I can’t wait to share more music.”

Tickets for Lady Antebellum, Kelsea Ballerini and Brett Young will go on sale Feb. 10 at 10 a.m. Ticket prices range from $36 to $69.50 plus fees. On Aug. 5, doors will open at 6 p.m. and music will start at 7:30 pm. Tickets can be purchased in person at the Walton Arts Center box office in Fayetteville, by calling 479-443-5600 or by visiting www.amptickets.com. The Walmart AMP box office in Rogers is closed, according to the release.

The performance is part of the AMP’s 2017 Cox Concert Series, which debuts April 22 with Blink-182. Train is set to play May 22, and Third Eye Blind is scheduled for July 12.
