Carly Rae Jepsen, Kenny Loggins, Martina McBride lead Rays concert series

The Tampa Bay Rays kept fans waiting for an official announcement regarding their 2013 summer concert series. But today — a week into the season — we finally have our first look at the lineup.

Call Me Maybe songstress Carly Rae Jepsen, above, classic rock hitmaker Kenny Loggins and country queen Martina McBride are the biggest names on the bill. Joining them are two acts that'll appeal to families: Nickelodeon princess Victoria Justice and kiddie-rock band Imagination Movers. More acts will be announced in the coming months.

As always, the postgame concerts are free with a game ticket, although you can purchase a field wristband for closer access. Here's the lineup so far, along with the Rays' opponent in each game:

May 11 (San Diego Padres): Kenny Loggins

June 8 (Baltimore Orioles): Martina McBride

June 16 (Kansas City Royals): Imagination Movers

July 14 (Houston Astros): Carly Rae Jepsen

Aug. 18 (Toronto Blue Jays): Victoria Justice

    Stage

    TAMPA — Charles Gounod's Faust sets the table early. The world-weary philosopher immortalized in a dramatic poem by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe is in his study, lamenting his state of affairs. He's willing to give away everything he has to be young again, even his soul.
