Touchdowns and Tunes Unveil 2021 Lineup

Paducah, Kentucky’s Touchdowns and Tunes Tailgate Party is trying to make up for lost time in 2020 by hosting their best lineup to date in September 2021. 

In an email announcement Tuesday, the headliners were announced and officials said a full lineup announcement will be released on Tuesday, October 27. 

On Friday night, September 3, Lynyrd Skynard will take the stage. The band’s stop at Touchdowns and Tunes will be a part of their final farewell tour. 

Saturday night, September 4 will feature Brantley Gilbert, and Sunday night, September 5 will bring Chris Young. 

Gilbert and Young have amassed 14 number-one singles on the country charts. Lynyrd Skynard never had a top-five hit on the Billboard Hot 100, with their highest charting song “Sweet Home Alabama” stalling at 8. 

Lynyrd Skynard has sold 28 million albums in the US since 1991 when Nielsen SoundScan started tracking sales. That figure doesn’t include album sales for the band’s first 17 years.

Touchdowns and Tunes officials add passes and camping spaces will go on sale December 1 and more ticket information will be released soon. More information will be posted on their website soon.

This hit song was recorded in June 1973 and released about a year later on the band’s ‘Second Helping’ album. The song was written by Ed King, Gary Rossington, and Ronnie Van Zant. The song was written in response to “Southern Man” and “Alabama” by Neil Young. Young is named in the lyrics of the song. 
While this song only reached number eight on the U.S. Country Airplay chart it’s one of my favorite country tunes. It features Justin Moore and Thomas Rhett. Gilbert co-wrote the single with Rhett’s dad, Rhett Akins, the song was also co-written by Ben Hayslip and Dallas Davidson.
This was Chris Young’s first number one single on country radio. Young co-wrote this sexy single with Cory Batten and Kent Blazy. The song was also nominated for a Grammy for ‘Best Male Country Vocal Performance’ in 2011, but was beat by Keith Urban’s “Til Summer Comes Around”.
