ESTILL SPRINGS — The shut down of pretty much all live music is one of the hardships of the COVID-19 pandemic. Lots of folks packed into a small venue or even a large arena just isn’t the best idea considering the respiratory spread of the virus. But as social distancing restrictions increase, the popularity of the local drive in has increased for more than just movies as it provides a safe, creative way to still enjoy entertainment.

On Saturday, July 25 those two concepts will collide as Encore Drive In Nights presents Blake Shelton at the Montana Drive In is nearby Estill Springs. Shelton will perform with Gwen Stefani and Trace Adkins.

The concert was filmed exclusively for the drive in performance and will also include behind-the-scenes interviews with the performers.

“This is such a great way to enjoy music with your family and friends and stay safe,” said Shelton. “I’m excited we’re getting the chance to perform a concert for fans and we’re going to go back and play old hits like Austin, newer songs like God’s Country and we might even introduce something brand new.”

The Montana is one of nine Tennessee drives in to play the concert. The performance will take place at 8 p.m. on Saturday, July 25 and the cost will be $114.99 per car load (up to six people). Tickets are on sales now at this link. •
