“How cool to be able to come home to Knoxville and celebrate this next big moment in my life with you! Central High is such a special place for me,” Ballerini told People. “I was in the glee club and got to perform in musicals on the same stage where I sang a song I wrote for the very first time. This city … this high school … really helped shape my life and I can’t wait to share my new songs with you.”

The Oct. 28 show is a collaboration with The Tennessee Department of Tourist Development as part of Tennessee Tourism’s Snapchat Concert Series and their ongoing “The Soundtrack of America. Made in Tennessee” campaign.
