NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Last week, his friend and fellow country star Jason Aldean announced he was doing a some gigs at baseball stadiums this summer.

Now, Luke Bryan taking things up a notch — by doing three shows at football stadiums as part of his “That’s My Kinda Night” tour.

The shows will be in Pittsburgh in June — and in Philadelphia and Chicago in August.

Few acts these days have the drawing power to fill a stadium. But there’s been a growing trend for country acts to sell out stadiums in the right markets.

Bryan says he’s happy to follow stars like Kenny Chesney, Tim McGraw and Taylor Swift who have done stadium shows.
