As part of the festivities, the White Sox will host pregame entertainment featuring a chance to win prizes from US99.5 at Gate 3 and a performance by Back Country Roads at Gate 4.

Following the game, there will be a fireworks display set to country music, recorded live from the Grand Ole Opry Stage, courtesy of Pepsi. Additionally, all fans 21 and older will receive free admission to Joe's Bar with their August 9 game ticket to enjoy a concert from Kristen Kelly.
