Once again, Provo residents are in for a treat this Independence Day weekend. On Wednesday, Freedom Festival organizers announced that this year’s Stadium of Fire concert will be hosted by country music superstar Tim McGraw.

McGraw returns to the festival after appearing in 2016, when he first headlined the sold-out show. Now he will be back after years of being asked by residents to take the stage.

“McGraw is one of the most successful artists in country music history. Along with selling over 80 million records worldwide and topping the charts with 44 No. 1 singles, McGraw is a songwriter, an outspoken actor and philanthropist,” read an email from the Freedom Festival.

With nearly 30 years of experience under his belt, McGraw is a staple in country music. He is best known for a multitude of songs, including “Don’t Take the Girl”, “Please Remember Me” and “Live Like You Were Dying”.

In addition to McGraw, there will be Marie Osmond from Utah. The email highlighted both Osmond’s roots in the state and his multiple platinum and gold albums, as well as several New York Times bestselling books.

The 2021 Stadium of Fire was headlined by Lee Greenwood and was a return for the event after being canceled in 2020 due to COVID-19. Other past titles include Keith Urban, Little Big Town, Miley Cyrus and many more.

According to the festival website, there will be no Street Heat or Tailgate, as is normally the case in the west parking lot of LaVell Edwards Stadium.

With a “MORE FIRE” theme, organizers hope to add more spectacle and splendor to the annual show. A declaration of the “GREATEST” fireworks display in the country and a flyover of F-35s stationed at Hill Air Force Base were also announced along with the performers.

Tickets can be purchased online beginning at 1 p.m. March 25 at stadiumoffire.com with advance purchase options available to subscribers via email. Tickets will cost between $35 and $250.
