SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- Country crooner Tim McGraw takes the stage at Salt River Fields Saturday night, and crews have been working around the clock, getting the stage ready for showtime!

"We're transforming a traditional baseball field into a concert venue," says Aaron Studebaker with Salt River Fields.

Promoters are expecting upwards of 15,000 people to attend the concert. "This is going to be largest concert we've ever had at Salt River Fields," says Studebaker. "Tim is an absolute superstar."

On Friday's Good Morning Arizona, we also got to meet Chelsea Bain, who will be opening for Tim McGraw. She's a singer from right here in the Valley whose career has been taking off.

"Over the past year, it's just been crazy," Bain tells us. "We've been sponsored by Coca Cola, my band and I, to play all the NASCAR races, so we've been building a fan base from that.

She says being asked to open for McGraw is a dream. "To be told that you're going to be opening for a country legend, honestly, someone who I grew up listening to," Bain says. "It's amazing that back then I had no idea that all this would be happening and that I would be connected to him like this."
