The line-up for the 2018 US Cellular Summer Jam Concert Series has been finalized.

On Wednesday morning, Nebraskaland Days officials announced that Brett Young will be the opener for Florida Georgia Line and the Charlie Daniels Band will open for Alabama.

Brett Young

Young is an up-and-coming musician with a West Coast-meets-Southern sound, which has been called “Caliville” style. He was the only Country artist to make Shazam’s “Emerging Artists of 2017″ list and was called “destined for mass appeal” by Rolling Stone.

Young released his self-titled debut album this year with BMLG Records. The album included the No. 1 Gold-Certified single “Sleep Without You.” He added a Platinum single to his achievements with the release of “In Case You Didn’t Know,” becoming the first country artist to hit the Platinum-Certification sales mark in 2017.

The song’s music video topped Vevo’s Country Chart for six consecutive weeks and is the only Country song on Vevo’s list of Top 10 Videos of 2017. The song is nominated for a Teen Choice Award and the video earned a nomination for Breakthrough Video of the Year at the 2017 CMT Music Awards.

Since stepping into the spotlight, Young has been nominated for New Male Vocalist of the Year by the Academy of Country Music and two Association of Independent Music Publisher Awards for Writer of the Year and Song of the Year for “Sleep Without You.”

Charlie Daniels

Daniels is an 80-year-old patriot who’s multi-platinum career has helped shape country music and the Southern Rock genre.

He’s earned awards for his country hits from the Country Music Association and recognition for his gospel albums in the form of Dove Awards from the Gospel Music Association. In 2016, Charlie Daniels was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame.

Daniels grew up in North Carolina and began his career playing bluegrass music with the Misty Mountain Boys. In 1967, he moved to Nashville to write, record and produce music.

He played on albums such as Bob Dylan’s Nashville Skyline and produced the Youngbloods’ Elephant Mountain and Ride the Wind. One of the pieces he co-wrote, “It Hurts Me,” was recorded by Elvis Presley and released on the B side of “Kissin’ Cousins.”
