Single-day tickets will go on sale Friday for the 2016 Red, White and Boom music festival, to be held Labor Day weekend at the Lexington Legends Whitaker Bank Ballpark.

At the beginning of the year, promoters for the event, presented by WBUL-FM 98.1, announced it was expanding to three days, topping its bill with major artists and moving from around the Fourth of July to the end-of-summer holiday weekend. At the time, only half of the lineup was announced, with Eric Church, Jason Aldean and Florida Georgia Line headlining, and Kacey Musgraves, Thomas Rhett and Cole Swindell supporting.

Rounding out the lineup will be:

▪  Cam, who typically incorporates pop styles into her music and has written for a number of artists, including Miley Cyrus.

▪  Maren Morris, whose debut album, Hero, comes out Friday.

▪  Granger Smith, who hails from Texas and found early success with his Dirt Road Driveway album. He has toured 10 countries, including Iraq.

▪  Jordan Rager, who got his start performing in bars in Georgia at the age of 15 and was mentored by Jason Aldean’s father, Barry Williams.

▪  Jon Pardi, a Red, White and Boom veteran, whose most recent single is Head Over Boots. His new album, California Sunrise, is out June 17.

▪  Canaan Smith, who has two succesful singles: We Got Us and Love You Like That.
