Lambert, who last played the Grandstand in 2008 with Dierks Bentley, will be joined by a guest who is yet to be named. The country singer has won multiple Grammy and CMA awards during her music career. 

NF, a Michigan native whose real name is Nathan Feurstein, originally came up through the Christian music scene before making the jump to mainstream rap and hip-hop, surprising many in the music industry when his last two albums, 'Perception' and 'The Search' topped the Billboard charts, the latter of which saw him beat Chance the Rapper's 'The Big Day' to No. 1.

Lambert's tickets go on sale to the public at 10 a.m. Friday and NF's tickets go on sale Friday at noon.

The Grandstand lineup this year also includes The Doobie Brothers, Tim McGraw and Darci Lynne & Friends.
