Country singer Lee Brice will perform at Colorado State University Friday.

Tickets are available online at CSUTix and will cost $10 for students and $35 for community members.

The fall concert, sponsored by RamEvents, will take place on the Intramural Fields at 5:30 p.m. Doors will open at 5 p.m.

Sydney Boyle, external relations and public relations coordinator, said that RamEvents surveyed students’ music preferences in preparation for the event. According to Boyle, approximately one-third wanted hip hop, a one-third wanted rap and one-third wanted country music at the concert.

“It was pretty evenly split,” Boyle said. “In the past couple years, we’ve done hip-hop and rap genres, so we’re taking the country route this year to serve a different population of our students.”

Lee Brice’s songs “Love Like Crazy”, “Parking Lot Party” and “Drinking Class” have all been in Billboard’s top 10. His song “I Don’t Dance” was nominated in the 2014 Country Music Awards for best song of the year.

According to Boyle, the concert will cost $200,000 and is paid for by ticket revenue and student fees.

“Student fees do go to pay for the concert,” Boyle said. “Obviously, earning revenue is not a goal of ours. Our main goal is to provide diverse and affordable events to enrich and entertain CSU students.”
