Galyon will open for American radio personality and 2018 “Dancing with the Stars” mirrorball winner Bobby Bones, who will perform with his comedy show Bobby Bones and the Raging Idiots.
Meanwhile, longtime country crooner Billy Currington with 11 chart-toppers will perform on Sept. 7.
Contemporary Christian singers Francesca Battistelli and Zach Williams, both with Grammy and Dove awards on their resume, will perform Sept. 11.
The lineup also includes rock band Skillet on Sept. 8 and rising country star Lauren Alaina with Mitchell Tenpenny on Sept. 13.
