The Sugar Land Skeeters and The New 93Q hosted its first-ever “Country at the Ballpark” during the second week of October at Constellation Field. This exciting new country music event featured an All-Star lineup consisting some of the hottest acts from Nashville and Texas: Chris Young, Eli Young Band, and "The Voice’s" Season 3 winner Cassadee Pope.
“Words can’t describe how excited we all are here at The New 93Q to partner with The Skeeters to host the first ever Country at the Ballpark at Constellation Field”, said The New 93Q Vice President and Market Manager Mark Krieschen. “Country is the hottest genre in all of music and it’s about time we had a huge country show at one of the most beautiful entertainment venues in all of Houston.”
More than 9,000 tickets were sold for the concert that took over six months of planning. The event was such as success that the Skeeters hope to turn it into an annual country concert.
