Big and Rich are comin' to Plant City.

The larger-than-life country duo, along with their longtime MuzikMafia cohort Cowboy Troy, has been tapped to fill an open slot at the 2018 Florida Strawberry Festival at 7:30 p.m. March 3. They'll fill in for the Band Perry, who recently dropped out for unspecified reasons.

Big and Rich will drop hits like Comin' to Your City, Save a Horse (Ride a Cowboy) and Lost In This Moment at the newly revamped Strawberry Festival grounds, which — for the first time ever — will not feature free first-come, first-served grandstand seating. Instead, all tickets for this show will be $30 and up. They'll go on sale at 9 a.m. Monday.

All other tickets to Strawberry Festival concerts — including Reba McEntire, Brad Paisley, Justin Moore and Earth, Wind and Fire — are on sale now. Click here for details.
