The Georgia Southern University 2014 spring concert talent was announced Tuesday after much waiting, and students had mixed opinions on the performers.

Lady Antebellum will headline the concert with Joe Nichols and Kristian Bush as the opening acts. All three performers are country artists.

The selected talents were not listed on the ballot for student input that theUniversity Programming Board distributed during the fall semester.

Due to the inability to find an available artist from the original list, UPB was forced to contact outside artists to bring to Georgia Southern to perform.

However, according to marketing research done by UPB, that is the genre that was a better fit for the student population and Statesboro community.

The concert is set for May 2 at Allen E. Paulson Stadium, and tickets will go on sale for students on March 24.
