Everybody, yeah! Rock your ... cowboy hats?
Famed Backstreet Boy-turned-country singer A.J. McLean is bringing his new sound to Iowa’s Big Country Bash next weekend, Des Moines country station 97.3 NASH announced Tuesday.
The singer plans to play an intimate set inside “Club Nash,” a VIP tent at the festival.
A “Club Nash” two-day pass to the bash costs $159 and goes on sale Friday at 9 a.m. via NashFM973.com. Fans can add Club Nash perks — including lunch, a parking pass and McLean meet and greet — to a previously-purchased pass for $79.
The festival runs June 22 and 23 at Avenue of the Saints Amphitheater in St. Charles. Brett Eldredge and Kane Brown co-headline the festival, with Midland, Dan + Shay, Raelynn and more set to appear.
McLean plays June 23 and tickets are limited to 100.

The star appears in Iowa following the June release of “Back Porch Bottle Service,” his solo introduction to country music. Backstreet Boys collaborated with Florida Georgia Line in 2016 on the track “God, Your Mama, and Me.”
He told Billboard: “‘Back Porch Bottle Service' is all about making time with the one you love. Forget the club, let’s just the make the night about you and me. Let me be your DJ. Let me be your bartender. Let me be your man.”
A two-day general admission ticket to the Bash costs $79. Find more information at bigcountrybash.com.
