Country Concert in MN: Vince Gill

Vince Gill will be in Minnesota this Friday! Vince Gill has had a very long career and has come out with many amazing songs. Just a few of his #1 songs have been "I Still Believe In You", "Don't Let Our Love Start Slippin' Away", "One More Last Chance" and "Tryin' To Get Over You." He will be performing at the Mystic Lake Casino Showroom on May 1st and May 2nd which is this Friday and Saturday but I will still able to find Vince Gill tickets luckily. I know love going to the Mystic Lake Showroom after seeing Dierks Bentley. I'm almost positive any country fan would love seeing there favorite performer there and getting a chance to be that close to them!

Country Concerts in MN: Dierks Bentley 2

I don't even know where to begin when talking about the Dierks Bentley concert. Jamie and I had the best time and Dierks was amazing! Dierks Bentley is the type of performer whose main purpose while on stage is to connect with the audience and show his appreciation for everyone being there. He ran all over the stage to make sure everyone in the place got a chance to be close to him and he would talk to audience members between songs. It was by far one of the best concerts I have been to and I would see Dierks Bentley again in a heart beat. I got to hear him sing all my favorite songs and a few new ones I haven't heard yet. If you haven't listen to "I Want To Make You Close Your Eyes" I highly highly suggest you download it ASAP since it isn't a single yet so you won't hear it on the radio. I promise you won't be disappointed it is one of Dierks best songs! I have never bought Mystic Lake Casino Showroom tickets before so I didn't know what to expect. I was pleasantly surprised when I saw how close we were (as seen in the pictures) to the stage and as my friend Jamie said, "any seat in here would be a great seat." It is a very fun place to see a performer because the venue is a little smaller and everyone can feel like they have great seats!

Country Concerts in MN: Dierks Bentley

Everyone that knows me knows when I say something about "my husband" I am talking about Dierks Bentley and I can't believe I am only 3 days away from seeing him!!! He is coming to the Mystic Lake Casino on Saturday and Sunday at 7:30. I am going to the concert on Saturday because I don't think I would be able to wait another day :) This has been a crazy past few months for me and I almost forgot he was coming to town so unfortunately I wasn't able to get a hotel room in time because they are all booked but I was lucky enough to find Dierks Bentley tickets that are still available. I listen to "Feel That Fire" at least three times a day and tell everyone that its about me, I'm sure there are many girls out there that could agree with me. That is the song I am most excited about hearing but I can't wait to hear all of his songs live. I will make sure to take pictures and let you all know how amazing it was!

Country Music News: ACM awards

Unfortunately, I missed the ACM awards this year :( But, on my way to work I heard much about how awesome the show was and heard a few clips. Just in case there are a few of you that also missed it I looked up the winners.
Entertainer of the Year: Carrie Underwood
Top Male Vocalist: Brad Paisley
Top Female Vocalist: Carrie Underwood
Top Vocal Group: Rascal Flatts
Top Vocal Duo: Sugarland
Top New Female Artist: Julianne Houghes
Top New Male Artist: Jake Owen
Top New Vocal Group: Zac Brown Band
Album of the Year: Taylor Swift
Music Video of the Year: Brad Paisley "Waiting on a Woman"
I love 99% of the winners and thing they definitely deserve the win! I'm still not a huge fan of Julianne Houghes music. I think she is an amazing dancer but just an okay singer (and it might be because she is dating Chuck Wicks who I am a little in love with!) It was nice to see that two of my favorite groups, Rascal Flatts and Sugarland, won awards but it was no surprise to me. I am excited to see some of these performers in concert because Sugarland, Taylor Swift, and Zac Brown band are coming to Minnesota! If any of you watched the show and I am missing some awesome moments please let me know!

Country Concerts in MN: Taylor Swift

I was so excited today when I heard that Taylor Swift's tour is going to be making a stop in Minnesota. Taylor Swift will be in Minnesota on October 10th! I am obsessed with her two new singles "Love Story" and "White Horse." I don't know which venue she is playing at or when Taylor Swift tickets will go on sale for this date but I will keep everyone updated.
