The Athens Banner-Herald has more:

Doors will open at 7 p.m. and the show starts at 8 p.m.

Fans can only get inside with a wristband which were given out at the Phi Mu Sorority beginning at noon. The wristbands were quickly given out in lines of two as CMT camera men filmed fan reactions.

The show officially was announced at about 11 a.m. today.

The Kinchafoonee Cowboys were scheduled to appear at the Georgia Theatre tonight, but posted a message on Facebook on Tuesday saying the show had been cancelled.

“The Georgia Theatre cancelled our show this Friday for another big country band,” the message said.
