Even if you can’t snag tickets to Super Bowl XLIX, you can still enjoy the moment in Arizona during the CMT After Midnite After Party at Dierks Bentley’s Whiskey Row, the singer’s restaurant in Scottsdale.
CMT’s Cody Alan will host the unofficial postgame concert featuring Big & Rich and Chase Bryant on Feb. 1. CMT has partnered with Premiere Networks and Phoenix-based iHeartMedia radio station 102.5 KNIX for the event. Doors will open at 3 p.m. for ticketed patrons. The concert will begin at approximately 10 p.m.
The big game between the New England Patriots and Seattle Seahawks will be played that day at the University of Phoenix Stadium in nearby Glendale.
Known for hits such as “Save a Horse (Ride a Cowboy),” “Comin’ to Your City,” “8th of November” and “Lost in this Moment,” Big & Rich returned recently with a new album, Gravity. In addition to the hit, “Look at You,” the album also features their just-released single, “Run Away With You.”
Bryant, a 22-year-old Texas native, will be opening shows on Tim McGraw’s Shotgun Rider tour later this year. His current single, “Take It on Back,” is currently No. 14 on Billboard’s country airplay chart.
Tickets to the CMT After Midnite After Party are on sale now at Dierkswhiskeyrow.com. A portion of the proceeds benefit Notes for Notes, a nonprofit organization which builds, equips and staffs after-school recording studios for youth around the nation.
