A record number of country music artists performed in the United States in 2020, a year that saw a surge in the number of performers performing in the U.S. on a major-label record.
But the number performed in other major cities in the country also surged in 2020.
Country music, along with pop music, remains the dominant music genre, accounting for more than 70 percent of the U,S.
concert attendance, according to a report from Nielsen Music, released Monday.
The Nielsen report showed the number peaked in the first quarter of 2021, and was down from 80 percent in the second quarter of 2020.
Among the performers that performed in some of the nation’s most popular cities were: Ryan Adams, the lead singer of the band The 1975, who performed at the Met Gala; Justin Bieber, the singer of pop group Calvin Harris, who played at the Grammy Awards; and Lady Gaga, the pop star and actress who performed in a series of concert series during the 2020 calendar year.
More than 6.6 million tickets were sold in the 2018 calendar year, Nielsen said.
The average price per ticket for a U.N. concert in 2019 was $5.42, down from $5,819 in 2018.
The median price of a ticket in 2019, according the report, was $4,977.
