UPDATED: Arkansas schedules country music concerts on game day weekends

UPDATE: The Justin Moore event has been moved to the Walmart AMP in Rogers.


Local Razorback fans considering attending next month’s football game against Toledo might have a little more incentive to make the drive to Little Rock.

University officials today announced that country music artist Brad Paisley will perform a free concert outside War Memorial Stadium following the Hogs’ matchup against the Rockets on Sept. 12.

Comedy band The Raging Idiots will open the show. No other details were announced.

The concert is part of Paisley’s “Country Nation College Tour” which also includes performances at Virginia Tech, the University of Texas, and Baylor University.
