If football itself wasn’t enough of a reason to head to Raymond James Stadium then Tim McGraw surely is. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers announced today that the country music legend will be gracing fans who purchased a ticket with a live show prior to the game.

The free concert is part of the team’s NFL Fantennial Celebration commemorating 100 years of NFL football.

Chief Operating Officer for the team Brian Ford had the following to say in regards to the announcement.

“As teams all across the league prepare to celebrate 100 years of NFL football, we wanted to usher in this historic season in unprecedented fashion,” said Buccaneers Chief Operating Officer Brian Ford. “This free pre-game concert with country music superstar Tim McGraw will provide an unforgettable start to the NFL’s 100th season.”

Tim McGraw added the below short statement.

“The start of the NFL season is one of my favorite times of the year,” said McGraw. “I love football and I’m pumped to be kicking off the NFL’s 100th season together with all the Bucs fans in Tampa.”

Tickets for the opener start at $45 and the concert will begin at 2:00 p.m. with the gates opening at 12:30 and the lots set to open at 11:30.
