Luke Bryan is moving into Steelers -- and Chesney -- territory.

The country star will bring his "My Kind of Night" summer tour to Heinz Field on June 21 with Dierks Bentley, Cole Swindell and Lee Brice.

It will be the first stadium show of the tour: "We're going to the home of the Steelers," he said in a press conference in Nashville this morning. "Get your Terrible Towels out."

Kenny Chesney, who plays Heinz Field almost annually, is taking the summer off from touring. At his show last year, fans left trash strewn all over, leading to criticism of the artist, the show's promoters, Heinz Field officials and the city of Pittsburgh.

Bryan is the reigning CMA Entertainer of the Year with eight No. 1 country singles and 4 million albums sold. Last year, he sold more than 1.3 million tickets on tour, selling out every show.

Fans can buy tickets beginning Jan. 24 as part of Live Nation’s Country Megaticket.
