Country superstar Tim McGraw will bring his “Southern Voice” tour to the Comcast Center on Saturday, July 16. The show, which will also serve as WKLB Country 102.5’s annual festival, will also feature Lady Antebellum and Love And Theft. Tickets for the show, which range in price from $25 to $67.50, go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. through Live Nation. Fans can also purchase a special 4-pack of tickets that will be discounted to $50.75 each. The show is also included in Live Nation’s 2010 Country Megaticket package.

McGraw, who was last in town for the WKLB festival in 2008, will be touring in support of his latest album, Southern Voice. Released last fall, the album topped the Billboard Top Country Albums chart and reached #2 on the Billboard 200. Southern Voice is McGraw’s tenth studio effort and first since 2007’s Let It Go. The album has produced hit singles “It’s a Business Doing Pleasure with You”, Southern Voice” and “Still”.

Lady Antebellum will be supporting their sophomore album Need You Now, which debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 after its release in January. The group were nominated for two Grammy Awards this year and won for Best Country Performance by Duo or Group with Vocals with “I Run to You” off their self-titled debut album. Lady Antebellum lead the pack with the most nominations for the 45th annual Academy of Country Music Awards, which is scheduled to take place on Sunday, April 18 in Las Vegas. The trio earned seven nominations, including Album of the Year and Top Vocal Group.

More artists will be added to the WKLB Country Music Festival lineup in the next few months.
