Known as “The Greatest and Greenest Show on Grass,” The Waste Management Phoenix Open attracts some of the largest and liveliest crowds of the PGA Tour. However, it’s the infamous Birds Nest, the tournament’s celebrated afterparty, where folks can experience the most fun without any noise restrictions. In fact, hooting and hollering is strongly encouraged.
When the sun goes down and the flags come out, those lucky enough to have tickets make their way underneath the celebrated white tent. Full of fans dancing and drinking to some of the best music around, the Birds Nest party continues to be one of the most celebrated events in town year after year.
And, this year is no exception.
On Wednesday February 1, Jake Owen and Chase Rice will get the party started. Both are making a huge impression in the country music world and will definitely be bringing their high-energy performances to the stage for fans to enjoy.
Chase Rice will be making his way to Phoenix following his Everybody We Know Does tour, which should give the country rocker a reason to celebrate at the Nest! And because he’s known for snapping plenty of pics with his fans, we think you should keep your iPhone close and your Instagram open.
Jake Owen, who had plans to be a professional golfer before an injury ended his dream, eventually made a hole-in-one of his own when his hit “American Country Love Song” took the top spot on Billboard Country Airplay & Country Aircheck’s Mediabase charts. We are excited to hear what he brings to the Nest, and we hope it includes his new single “If He Ain’t Gonna Love You.”
You’ll want to keep your cowboy boots close as the boot-scootin’ good times will continue Thursday, February 2. The Band Perry will be starting things out before Toby Keith tops off the evening with his well-known anthems.
With a double dose of pure country on Wednesday and Thursday nights, the Birds Nest will be hotter than a trip to the chicken ranch!
