May will be a country fans' delight

December 12, 2009 

The first weekend in May at the Colonial Life Arena is going to be a country fan's dream.

Taylor Swift will perform April 30; Martina McBride will be there May 2. And on May 1, Carrie Underwood will bring her "Play On Tour" to the venue, the arena announced Friday.

This will be Underwood's first headlining appearance at the Colonial Life Arena. She opened for Brad Paisley in 2006.

Since Swift is sold out, why not grab a seat to one of country music's other darlings.

Tickets, which cost $35 to $55, go on sale at 10 a.m. Dec. 18. Tickets can be purchased at the arena box office; at Play It Again Sports stores; at; or by calling (877) 489-2849.
