The reigning queen of country music and one of Nashville’s leading hunks are teaming up on tour — and coming to Salt Lake City in October.
Lambert has been named the top female vocalist four years running by the Academy of Country Music, and won a Grammy for her hit "The House That Built Me." She and husband Blake Shelton, also a country star and a judge on "The Voice," are known as one of Nashville’s major power couples.
Bentley won a 2009 CMT Music Award, for performance of the year, for his song "Country Boy." He’s had 10 No. 1 singles on the U.S. country charts, most recently "Am I the Only One," "Home" and "5-1-5-0."
Opening the show is country/bluegrass musician Chris Stapleton, formerly of The SteelDrivers (a band that happens to be playing, without Stapleton, at the Utah Arts Festival on Saturday) and soon to release his first single, "What Are You Listening To."
Tickets for the concert range from $25 to $49.75, and go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. at Smith’s Tix.
