Country Music Song: "Boots On"

I left work today to grab some lunch and turned on K102. I was surprised and very excited to hear "Boots On" by Randy Houser! I know I recently wrote about this song because I saw Randy Houser when he opened for Pat Green. I just wanted to give a shout out to Randy Houser because this song is by far one of my new favorite songs. Even if you aren't a big fan of his download this song and you will probably change your mind. It is an uptempo song about good ol' country boys that go out with there "boots on."

Country Concert in MN: Pat Green Update

I really don't even know where to begin because last night watching Randy Houser and Pat Green at the Cabooze was one of the funnest nights of my life. Jamie and I showed up around 8:30 and the place was packed, you could barely move. We got ourselves a drink and then found a place close to the stage to stand. The people that were around us were a blast and we talked to multiple people through out the night and everyone was having a great time. Randy Houser came on and I wasn't expecting to much cause I haven't heard much about him but boy was I wrong! Everything about Randy Houser was amazing his voice, his songs, his stage presence. I am now a huge fan of his especially his song "With My Boots On." If you haven't heard it I suggest downloading it or buying his CD because it is a great country party song. Next Pat Green came on and put on one of the best performances I have seen. Even though I didn't know all of his songs he made sure you had the time of your life listening to them. I was in my own personal heaven when he sang "Let Me." It sounded better than when you hear it on the radio and being 5 feet from him listening to that song is a moment I will remember for the rest of my life! Everything I have said doesn't even begin to describe how much fun I had with my girl Jamie listening to Pat Green and Randy Houser. If you haven't been to a concert at the Cabooze I highly highly suggest you make it out there for at least one concert!

Country Concerts in MN: Pat Green

The day is finally here for Jamie and me to go see Pat Green! I am very excited to hear "Let Me" which is Pat Green's newest single that I love. I am even more excited because I saw Chuck Wicks at the Cabooze and I already know how close we are going to be to Pat Green and hopefully we get to touch the performers hands again! I will be sure to put up pictures tomorrow or Monday of Pat Green and the Show at the Cabooze. The doors open at 8 p.m. and the show starts at 8:30. Jamie and I are planning on buying our tickets at the door.

Country Concerts in MN: Dierks Bentley & Keith Urban tickets

My concert partner Jamie just told me the most exciting news this morning. My prayers have finally been answered and my dream is coming true, Dierks Bentley is coming to Minnesota!!!!!!! The best part is that he isn't here for just one day but two days! On April 25Th and April 26Th Dierks Bentley will be at Mystic Lake Casino. The tickets haven't gone on sale yet but by this weekend I will probably have tickets for both nights and I will let you know where and how I got them. I am beyond excited to finally see "my husband" Dierks Bentley live in concert.
It has been a couple days since I have written a blog so I didn't get a chance to tell everyone that I got my Keith Urban tickets when he comes to the Xcel Energy Center on May 14Th. This is going to be the best year of country concerts I have experienced since I was born. I get excited every time I hear a Dierks, Urban, Zac Brown Band, and many other artist on the radio because I know it is just a matter of time before I see them in concert!

Country Concerts in MN: Exclusive Keith Urban Update

You can't even find this information out on the Keith Urban website but, I found out today when he will becoming to Minnesota. His Escape Together tour will be making a stop at the Xcel Energy Center on May 14th at 7:30. This will be the first time I will see Keith Urban in concert and I can hardly wait and think about how excited I am almost every day :) The only part I am a little sad about is who the opening band is going to be in Minnesota. During his tour he will have amazing opening acts like Taylor Swift, Dierks Bentley, and Lady A. Sadly, when he comes here the opening band is going to be the Zac Brown Band. I do like that band but no where close to as much as I like his other opening acts. As long as I get to see Keith I will be happy! I will update my blog when I figure out how to get tickets :)

Country Concert in MN: Gary Allan

On my way to work today I was listening to the radio and heard the song "She's So California" and it reminded me that I saw Gary Allan was coming into town. I checked it out and found out he will be performing at the Grand Casino Hinkley on March 22nd. Gary Allan has been releasing albums since 1998 and has had much success. I have been a fan for many years but, I truly fell in love with his music when he released "Watching Airplanes." I was addicted to that song for months and still love to hear it whenever it is on the radio. He has had many other great songs like; "Learning How to Bend", "Life Ain't Always Beautiful", "Best I Ever Had", and "Puttin' Memories Away." I really hope I can make it to the Grand Casino Hinkley to see Gary Allen's concert because I would LOVE to hear "Watching Airplanes" live in person.

Country Concerts in MN: Jason Aldean

I can already tell 2009 is going to be an amazing year for country concerts. Jason Aldean is just one more amazing artist that is making a stop in Minnesota. He will be preforming at Mystic Lake Casino Showroom on April 18Th. Jason Aldine Willimas a.k.a Jason Aldean released his first album, Jason Aldean, in early 2005. His first release was "Hicktown" which is a great song to play at a bonfire, I know from experience! His first #1 single was "Why" which I was addicted to for about 2 months. Since then he has released two more albums, Relentless and Wide Open. He has also had seven Top 40 songs with; "Hicktown", "Why", "Amarillo Sky", "Johnny Cash", "Laughed Until We Cried", "Relentless", and his newest single "She's Country." With all of those great songs I think this will be an awesome concert. I am going to yet again spend more of my life savings on concerts and go buy some Jason Aldean tickets. I hope my friend Jamie is getting ready for a crazy year of country concerts!
