It’s as if we couldn’t love Carnival Cruise Line enough…now they’ve announced their initial 2017 Carnival LIVE lineup! This year Carnival LIVE is featuring country music stars Tim McGraw and Little Big Town along with comedians Jay Leno and Jeff Foxworthy who will perform on seven different ships departing from five convenient U.S. homeports.
If you don’t know already, Carnival LIVE is a one-of-a-kind entertainment experience that brings the best in live music and comedy to the seas, where there’s never a bad seat in the house. Performances are held in the ships’ main show lounges which range in capacity from 900 to 1,300 – giving shows a more intimate and personal feel. The best way to see a LIVE performance!
Who wouldn’t want this added bonus while on a cruise?
Carnival LIVE’s 2017 Lineup
Three-time Grammy Award winner Tim McGraw will bring his signature brand of country music to two Carnival ships with show-stopping performances aboard Carnival Breeze March 2, and Carnival Valor March 3, while the ships are docked in Nassau, The Bahamas. In addition to 21 number one singles, 11 of McGraw’s albums have debuted at number one on the Billboard country album chart.
I’m sure he’ll sing Humble & Kind. I hope he performs my favorite: Don’t Take the Girl! Do you think he’ll bring Faith Hill?
Little Big Town
Platinum recording artist Little Big Town will have audiences singing along and dancing in the aisles with shows in Nassau aboard Carnival Dream May 11, and Carnival Valor May 12. The recipients of nine Country Music Association awards, the chart-topping band has earned a loyal following for their unique mix of harmonies and incredible musical talents.
I’m such a fan of Girl Crush. My kids get so embarrassed when I belt it out at the top of my lungs! And Day Drinking is perfect for a cruise….
One of the most successful comedians in the country, Jeff Foxworthy is the largest selling comedy recording artist in history, a multiple Grammy Award nominee and author of 11 books. Famous for his “you might be a redneck if…” jokes, his comedy explores everyday family interactions and human nature. That brings back memories…. Foxworthy will perform two shows – one aboard Carnival Freedom June 21, and another aboard Carnival Ecstasy June 22, while the ships are docked in Nassau.
A member of the Television Hall of Fame and a longtime host of NBC’s Tonight Show, Jay Leno will entertain guests with his observational humor with a pair of hilarious performances in Cozumel aboard the Carnival Victory May 3, and Carnival’s newest ship the Carnival Vista May 4. Leno plays upwards of 200 shows a year and currently hosts “Jay Leno’s Garage” on the CNBC network. Jay would be fun to be next to in the casino…
