Put on your boots, grab that gal hat and get ready to get your feet moving as the CFL heads to the country for the Gray Cup halftime show this year.
While the Gray Cup is Canada’s premier football event of the year, it comes with one of the biggest events in entertainment. This year’s intermission show features music from three different artists, all with a country flair.
Tyler Hubbard, Jordan Davis and Josh Ross are the three artists who will be performing at the Regina during the Gray Cup hiatus. It’s the second year that the entertainment has featured multiple acts rather than just one headliner.
Here’s what you need to know about the halftime show for the 109th Gray Cup.

Gray Cup Halftime Show 2022
The Gray Cup goes country in 2022 as the halftime show features three country singers.
Florida Georgia Line’s Tyler Hubbard, Jordan Davis and Josh Ross will be the three acts entertaining during this year’s break.

Hubbard is best known as one half of the American country duo Florida Georgia Line. Together with Brian Kelley, the two have released a string of hits including “Cruise”, “This Is How We Roll”, “May We All” and “Round Here”.
Hubbard and Kelley announced earlier this year that the pair would be taking an indefinite hiatus from performing together, so it’s only Hubbard who will co-headline the Gray Cup halftime show.
The 35-year-old hails from Monroe, Georgia and is currently pursuing a solo career. His debut album is scheduled for release in January 2023.
David is an American country singer from Shreveport, La. The 34-year-old isn’t as well known internationally, but two of Davis’ singles have earned number one on the Canadian country chart, first with Singles You Up in 2017 and then Buy Dirt in 2021 .
Ross is the only Canadian in the group to perform at the halftime show. The Burlington, Ont. Native is known for his hit singles “First Taste of Gone” and “On a Different Night”.
Previous Gray Cup halftime performances
The Gray Cup didn’t always have half-time entertainment. In fact, the tradition in the league didn’t begin until 1990, when the CFL made its first break appearance.
A number of high profile acts performed at the Gray Cup halftime show including Canadian legends Justin Bieber, Shania Twain (twice), Bryan Adams and the group Nickelback.
The 2022 Halftime Show marks the second year in a row that three artists will headline the event.
