Sam Hunt will headline the Super Bowl 50 NFL Tailgate Party at Levi’s Stadium in San Francisco on Sunday (February 7th), along with pop superstar Seal. Sam will perform prior to the big matchup between the Denver Broncos and the Carolina Panthers, and both his performance will be televised as part of CBS’s Super Bowl Sunday pregame show, The Super Bowl Today.

The Georgia native is looking forward to playing at this year’s Super Bowl. “I’m just looking forward to being in the middle of Super Bowl energy. It’s become such a massive pop culture event, and I love that they’ve incorporated music and entertainment with the sport itself and the entertainment value that comes from that,” says Sam. “It encompasses just a strong representation of American culture, and I’m looking forward  to being in the middle of all that positive energy. I’m a huge music fan, obviously, and I’m a huge sports fan, so those are two of my favorite worlds combined there.”
