PROVO — Country music superstar Tim McGraw will headline the 2022 Stadium of Fire event lineup on July 2 at LaVell Edwards Stadium in Provo, officials announced Wednesday afternoon.

The announcement was made on KSL-TV, where officials named Tim McGraw as the main act, with Marie Osmond set to perform as a special guest.

The event, created by Merrill and Alan Osmond as an Independence Day celebration back in 1980, was canceled in 2020 due to the pandemic, holding only the firework show. It came back in 2021 for its 39th year, with Lee Greenwood and Collin Raye headlining. This year, Stadium of Fire celebraties 40th year by bringing back McGraw for the third time.

McGraw first performed at the event 30 years ago in 1992, and most recently in 2016 where he performed for nearly 40,000 people at the event and for 1 million military men and women in more than 100 countries via the American Forces Network.

McGraw has won three Grammy Awards, 14 Academy of Country Music awards, 11 Country Music Association awards, 10 American Music Awards and three People's Choice Awards. He is currently co-starring with his wife Faith Hill in the hit TV series "1883," and beginning at the end of April, McGraw will begin his 17-city amphitheater tour, the "McGraw Tour 2022."

"We're thrilled to welcome Tim McGraw back to #StadiumOfFire on July 2nd in Provo!" American's Freedom Festival at Provo wrote in a Facebook post. "Special guest Marie Osmond will also be performing!"

Osmond has been in the performing industry for 60 years, getting her start here in the Beehive state as a singer. Osmond has also had a successful career in TV along with her brother Donny Osmond. She has been a talk show host, dancer, author and public speaker.

Tickets go on sale to the general public on Friday, March 25, at freedomfestival.org. According to the organizers, however, members of the Freedom Festival's email list will have "first dibs" and "advance ticket opportunities."
