Airing exclusively on CTRL_MUSIC_, a brand new country music channel on the popular interactive livestreaming service, this Wednesday’s show is a must-see. The multi-platinum entertainer will take the stage at 8 pm CT for a 45-minute, full band set to perform some of his biggest hits.
“What a great way to start interacting with fans and performing live again,” Young says. “We’re proud to kick this off with our friends at Twitch.”
Young’s performance, which is the first in a 24-week series, will take place at the Brooklyn Bowl Nashville, the newest Nashville venue, which has established itself as a standout concert venue and proven leader in utilizing state-of-the-art production capabilities along with delivering the ultimate livestreamed concert experience. At this time, no live audiences will be allowed in the venue (subject to change based on local conditions and protocols).
