Garth Brooks, Jelly Roll To Headline Inaugural 'Billboard Country Live'

Garth Brooks and Jelly Roll are among the lineup of artists who are set to appear at the inaugural Billboard Country Live in Concert.

Jelly Roll will headline the show at the Marathon Music Works in Nashville on June 6 following Nate Smith‘s opening act.

The second day’s highlight will be the first Billboard Country Live in Conversation, featuring an intimate Q&A with Garth Brooks.

In other sessions on June 7, top country artists, including Carly Pearce, Bailey Zimmerman, Brian Kelley, Lauren Alaina, Megan Moroney and Lady A‘s Hillary Scott will be discussing the hottest issues in country music.

The topics for discussion include The Women of Country, The Future of Country, the 50th Anniversary of CMA Fest, The “songwriter-in-the round,” and a look at the music behind Paramount Network‘s popular neo-Western drama “Yellowstone.”

“We’re thrilled to launch the first year of Billboard Country Live with acts that have something to say and sing about,” said Melinda Newman, Executive Editor of Billboard, West Coast and Nashville.

She added, “From Jelly Roll performing in a small setting to discussions with some of the biggest names in country including Garth Brooks, it’s our privilege to highlight the tremendous talent that thrives in Nashville with premier programming we hope will bring people back for years to come.”
