Just Announced: Yes, Sam Hunt is Coming to Minnesota This Summer
Sam Hunt is one of country music's biggest stars right now, and he just announced he'll be heading to Minnesota this summer!
It's a little hard to wrap your head around in the middle of a cold, snowy Minnesota winter day, but here's something that will warm you up: Sam Hunt is headed to the Land of 10,000 Lakes this summer-- and he'll play a live show just a little over an hour away from Rochester!
That's right, Treasure Island Resort & Casino announced Friday morning (January 14th, 2022) that Sam Hunt is set to play outside in the TI Amphitheatre on Friday, July 8th. Opening for Sam will be Ryan Hurd (who, of course, is married to fellow country superstar, Maren Morris.)
