Country music is returning to Atlantic City’s beach this summer with concerts featuring Toby Keith and Florida Georgia Line.

Keith will perform on July 23 and Florida Georgia Line’s show is scheduled for Sept. 3. The video below features Florida Georgia Line singing This is How We Roll.

Live Nation Philadelphia spokeswoman Rachel Spivak tells The Press of Atlantic City the shows are part of a larger announcement for the upcoming 2016 Atlantic City beach summer concert series.

The Casino Reinvestment Development Authority board in March approved a 3-year, $6 million agreement with Live Nation to bring at least six beach concerts, or other events that attract at least 30,000 attendees, to the resort for the next three summers.

Rascal Flatts performed on the beach last year.
