After the announcement, Wednesday evening, B.A.S.S. will air an exclusive performance of Green’s most popular songs.
Speculation about the Classic location has been swirling since Hank Cherry hoisted the trophy in March, making this one of the year’s most anticipated Bassmaster live broadcasts. Swindle and Green will be fishing on the 2020 Classic waters at Lake Guntersville, making this the perfect backdrop for Swindle — an 18-time Classic qualifier — to announce the next destination for the Super Bowl of Professional Bass Fishing.
Swindle has long been one of sportfishing’s biggest names, while Green is one of music’s brightest emerging stars. Named an “Artist You Need To Know” by Rolling Stone, Green has charted with two singles, “There Was A Girl” (2018) and “I Wish Grandpas Never Died” (2019). His debut album, “Different ‘Round Here,” was released in late 2019. Green, who is also an avid outdoorsman and athlete who played three sports in high school and football in college, now counts hunting and fishing among his favorite pastimes.
