Tickets: Carrie Underwood, Martina McBride

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

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

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

Swift's concert is sold out, so why not grab a seat to see one of country music's other blond darlings?

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