Country rocker Morgan Wallen will perform at Ford Field on June 30, venue officials announced Thursday.

Morgan Wallen performs at All for the Hall: Under the Influence Benefiting the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee, on Feb. 10, 2020.

Tickets for the show, part of the Tennessean's One Night at a Time world tour, go on sale via Ticketmaster channels at 4 p.m. Dec. 9. Bailey Zimmerman and Ernest will open the show.

Wallen's tour kicks off April 15 in Milwaukee and wraps Oct. 7 in Tacoma, Wash. He will also play Grand Rapids' Van Andel Arena on April 27.

Wallen's "Dangerous: The Double Album" has been a sales monster. The 2021 album spent its first 10 weeks at No. 1 and in September it set a record for most weeks in the Top 10 of the Billboard 200 among albums by a solo artist.

The album is No. 5 on this week's Billboard 200 chart.

Wallen's success has not come without controversy. The 29-year-old found himself in hot water in February 2021 when a video of him using a racial slur went viral online. Wallen's music was removed from rotation at some radio stations as a result, and he was suspended from his record label.

Wallen was one of the headliners of 2022's Faster Horses festival.
