The lineup for the 2020 Coors Light Birds Nest is starting to take shape as country music superstars Dierks Bentley and Miranda Lambert have committed to perform at the popular entertainment venue at the Waste Management Phoenix Open Presented by The Ak-Chin Indian Community. Tickets for the two shows go on sale Friday, Oct. 25 at 9 a.m. and can be purchased by visiting www.coorslightbirdsnest.com. The remaining Coors Light Birds Nest lineup will be announced as more artists are confirmed.
“Country music has always been a fan favorite at the Coors Lights Birds Nest and we’re absolutely thrilled to have these two country megastars headline Wednesday and Friday night,” said Tim Woods, WM Phoenix Open Tournament Chairman. “The incredible energy and stage presence both these performers bring to the table is unmatched and we’re anxious to see them put on a great show for our fans.”
Two-time GRAMMY Award winner and nine-time Academy of Country Music Female Vocalist of the Year Miranda Lambert will kick off the Coors Light Birds Nest on Wed., Jan. 29, bringing her feisty, down-home personality and stellar vocals to the stage. Lambert is currently promoting The Wildcard Tour, named for Lambert’s November 1 seventh-studio album designated one of the “most anticipated albums of Fall 2019” by Billboard, featuring 27 dates across several major markets throughout the U.S. and Canada. Lambert’s first six studio albums were certified platinum and produced hit singles such as “House that Built Me,” “Heart Like Mine,” “Over You,” and “Somethin’ Bad” (featuring Carrie Underwood), all of which hit the No. 1 position on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs.
“Miranda Lambert is without a doubt our biggest Wednesday headliner to take the stage at the Birds Nest,” Woods said. “She’s an amazingly accomplished performer and we’re pumped to have the Birds Nest be one of the stops on her upcoming Wildcard tour.”
No stranger to the Coors Light Birds Nest, Phoenix native Dierks Bentley will take to the stage at the ever-popular music festival on Friday, Jan. 31. Bentley’s studio albums have accounted for 25 singles on the Hot Country Songs and Country Airplay charts, of which 16 have reached number one – his debut single “What Was I Thinkin'”, “Come a Little Closer”, “Settle for a Slowdown”, “Every Mile a Memory”, “Free and Easy (Down the Road I Go)”, “Feel That Fire”, “Sideways”, “Am I the Only One”, “Home”, “5-1-5-0”, “I Hold On”, “Drunk on a Plane”, “Say You Do”, “Somewhere on a Beach”, “Different for Girls” and “Woman, Amen”. Seven more of his singles have reached the Top-5.
“Country music has become a staple of the Birds Nest and Dierks Bentley, one of country music’s biggest stars, is obviously a huge crowd favorite,” said Woods. “A personal friend for over 30 years, his ties to the Valley, the tournament and The Thunderbirds run deep as an Arizona native whose father, Leon, was a Thunderbird. Dierks will undoubtedly put on a tremendous show for the local fans as he always does.”
Coors Light Birds Nest general admission tickets will start at $75, while VIP tickets are available starting at $285 each and provide exclusive access to the Jameson VIP area where guests are treated to a complimentary catered dinner, complimentary drinks and access to a newly redesigned premium viewing area for the shows.
