Get ready to “Shake Ya Tailfeather” at the Cowboys Music Festival as Nelly is confirmed to perform during July’s Calgary Stampede.

The hip-hop megastar is going to make crowds move on July 14 alongside country singer Jimmie Allen.

Nelly exploded onto the scene with “Country Grammar” in 2000 and reached his highest peaks with “Hot in Herre” in 2002. Anyone growing up around the time will also remember his hits “Dilemma” and “Ride Wit Me.”
