Sponsored by Crest/Oral B, this event will be at Mercedes Benz Stadium in Atlanta – site of the 2019 Super Bowl! One free ticket will be included with each paid Annual Session registration.

The Big & Rich triple-platinum album, “Horse of a Different Color,” and smash hit single “Save a Horse Ride a Cowboy” rocked the music world with their fusion of contemporary country and other musical influences.
