Scheduled for 13 July, Jackson's performance will highlight the weekend-long festivities alongside other headliners for Savannah Bites. 

The new segment to the rodeo will give attendees a taste of the music festival set to kick off in October. 

Known for her heartfelt lyrics and captivating stage presence, Jackson's presence is expected to draw large crowds to the event, which combines traditional rodeo competitions with family-friendly entertainment. 

Organiser Peter Brown said he was excited to welcome Jackson, whose latest album has topped the country charts, and to get the Savannah in the Round excitement going before the big event in October.

“It’s going to be really special this year with Savannah Bites, which will be in the main arena for an hour and having the Savannah ambassador Max Jackson perform live,” he said

“We will also have a series of videos from Tyler Hubbard that will play on the big screen, as well as Kip Moore, and that will massage people into the State of Origin.

“When we sat down with the director James Dien, we put together a 10-year plan, and three years in it is bigger and better than ever.

“It is great for the community, and we are humbled to be involved with Savannah.”

Savannah Bites will take centre stage from 7pm before the State of Origin on Saturday night.
