Blake Shelton to Headline Y Live Concert

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio – Nine-time Country Music Association Award-winning artist Blake Shelton will headline this year’s Y Live concert Sept. 21 at Stambaugh Stadium.

Tickets for the concert, which also features Justin Moore and Tyler Farr, go on sale at 10 a.m. July 12 at the Covelli Centre box office and online at Ticketmaster.com. Prices range from $45 to $139.50.

Shelton has won many awards in his 18-year career, including the Academy of Country Music’s Song of the Year in 2013 for “Over You,” Billboard Music Award’s Top Country Artist in 2017 and CMT Music Awards’ Video of the year in 2018. 

He was also inducted into the Grand Ole Opry in 2010 and the Oklahoma Hall of Fame in 2014. Shelton has been a coach on NBC’s “The Voice” since its first season in 2011 and has been the winning coach six times.

Last year’s Y Live concert, featuring Florida Georgia Line, drew more than 19,000 attendees, a number that JAC Live CEO Eric Ryan says topped presidential candidate John F. Kennedy’s visit to the city in 1960 as the most-attended even in Youngstown’s history.
