The 2020 lineup for Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival has arrived. From June 11-14, artists like Lizzo, Young Thug, Megan Thee Stallion, DaBaby and more are set to hit the stage in Manchester, Tennessee. But the artist that will bring that nostalgia factor is none other than rapper Nelly.
On the 3rd night of the festival, the St. Louis native will perform his debut studio album Country Grammar two decades after its anniversary. With hits/standout tracks like “E.I.,” “Ride wit Me,” and, of course, “Country Grammar (Hot Sh*t),” Nelly is sure to rock the crowd come Summer 2020.
Shortly after the lineup announcement, the album title climbed the Twitter trending topics as fans shared the elation for the news. Some thought he’d be performing his single, while the rest of us knew he’d be performing the actual album in its entirety.

the fact that everyone thinks Country Grammar is just a song, and not the 9th highest selling rap album of all time (that has sold well over 10 million copies) has me 😰😰https://t.co/BEuZe4z3Gs

These kids really think Country Grammar is just a single song and don’t realize it’s an entire album. Me and Nelly are too old for this shit 😂😂🤦🏾♂️ pic.twitter.com/rXHlxJ6g2l

Now let us pray that he reunites with the St. Lunatics and still performs “Hot in Herre” for the sake of 2000s hip-hop.
