Youngstown, OH – Jac Live is proud to present four-time Entertainer of the Year Luke Bryan as the headlining artist of Youngstown’s fourth annual stadium concert event: Y Live. Bryan will stop in Youngstown as part of his “Proud To Be Right Here” tour on June 13th with special guests Morgan Wallen and Caylee Hammack.

Y Live’s reputation has made waves in the music industry and put Youngstown on the map. Our hometown will get to kick off its summer with one of country music’s brightest stars and celebrate how far we have come as a community since before the first installment in the Y Live legacy.

The event production and promoting company has risen to the challenge year after year of turning YSU’s Stambaugh Stadium into a concert venue fit for music legends and fans alike. “Producing an event like Y Live is an achievement we share with our loyal event sponsors and the fans that continue to support it. Without the fans there would be no Y Live, and we are grateful to work on an event of this magnitude for another year” said Ryan.

He continues, “When we founded the event, back in 2017, we knew that iconic artists would be as essential to its success as the support from our community. It’s so great that this year’s headliner, Luke Bryan, has sold out stadiums across the country again and again and it is an honor for our event to be part of this tour. Buckle up Youngstown, here comes Y Live 2020.”

Celebrated as THE Youngstown music event, Y Live will be held on Saturday, June 13, 2020 at 7:00pm. Luke Bryan will take the field to perform songs from his latest album, Born Here Live Here Die Here which will be released on April 24th as well as hits we all know and love.

Y Live would not be possible without our presenting sponsors that include The DeBartolo Corporation, Huntington Bank, Southwoods Health, and Sweeney Chevrolet Buick GMC.

In 2019, Luke was named as the first-ever recipient of the ACM’s Album of the Decade Award for Crash My Party as presented to him during a Grand Ole Opry appearance. The ACM Album of the Decade Award recognizes an album that has impacted country music over the decade. The factors considered include the success of singles at radio, album concept, commercial media, sales and streaming, artistic merit and ACM Award recognition. Billboard said, “it wasn’t just his star power that made Crash My Party special, as most of the album’s singles — like the poignant “Drink a Beer” and nostalgic “Roller Coaster” — were more focused on Bryan’s heartfelt croon as opposed to the party anthems that “bro country” made popular at that time.”

22 of Bryan’s 23 #1 hits have been in the last decade including his breakthrough hit ““Country Girl Shake It For Me” which was included in Billboard Magazine’s “100 Songs that Defined a Decade” list out last month. Other #1 hits include “I Don’t Want This Night To End,” “Huntin’, Fishin’ and Lovin’ Everyday,” “Play It Again” and poignant songs like “Fast,” “Drink A Beer” and “Most People Are Good,” which Music Row named Song of the Year in 2018 and Rolling Stone at its peak touted “it’s message – coming from a star on the level of Luke Bryan – is important in the country music world.”

Luke’s headline concert tours have played for over one million fans every year for the last six years with four of those reaching 1.5 million. In total Luke has performed for nearly 12 million fans in the last ten years. His 2019 “Sunset Repeat Tour” wrapped this fall with his 36th career headline stadium concert at Ford Field in Detroit and during the show Luke was presented with a new music plaque signifying his continued domination in the format with more RIAA certified digital singles than any other country artist with 54 million digital singles, 12.5 million albums and Seven billion streams. Luke has four Platinum albums, two 4x-Platinum albums, seven RIAA certified albums, 22 Platinum singles and 12 Multi-Platinum singles.

In this past decade Luke has presented ten Farm Tours (11 years career total), seven headline tours, six years of Spring Break shows and six Crash My Playa concert events. He was recognized as a CMT Artist of the Year six consecutive times, was twice named the Entertainer of the Year by BOTH the Academy of Country Music and the Country Music Association and was honored as a NSAI Artist/Songwriter of the Year. In total Luke has won over 40 music awards including six ACM awards, six CMT Music Awards, five Billboard Music Awards, four American Music Awards, two CMA awards, an iHeart and a Teen Choice award and more.

This March Luke will continue his role as a celebrity judge on ABC’s American Idol.
