Tiger Stadium prepped for Bayou Country Superfest
BATON ROUGE - Crews gathered at Tiger Stadium to put the finishing touches on their plans for Bayou Country Superfest, which kicks off Friday in Baton Rouge.
The stadium itself is still undergoing construction above the south end zone, which will partially affect foot and vehicle traffic. North and South Stadium drives will both be closed to vehicles, and North Stadium Drive will be partially closed to pedestrians.
The annual country music festival starts Friday night with Reba McIntire at 7 p.m. and George Strait at 8:45 p.m., part of his "Cowboy Rides Away" farewell tour. The free Fan Fest starts at 2 p.m. outside Tiger Stadium with music and meet-and-greets featuring local artists.
Saturday's lineup includes Luke Bryan, Florida Georgia Line, Lee Brice, Easton Corbin and Gloriana. On Sunday, Jason Aldean, Eric Church, Big & Rich, Joe Nichols and 22-year-old Breaux Bridge native Hunter Hayes are featured.

News 2's Troy Gaulden will have more previews of the music festival tonight starting at 4 p.m.
