Country Concerts in MN: Minnesota State Fair Grandstand

I know all of you Minnesota country fans out there are going to be just as excited about the Minnesota State Fair Grandstand lineup as I am! Country artist tickets you are able to purchase this year for the Grandstand are: Jason Aldean tickets for August 28th (the one I am most excited about!), Kid Rock and Lynyrd Skynyrd tickets for August 29th, Kelly Clarkson tickets for August 30th (had a hit country single with Reba McEntire), A Prairie Home Companion with Garrison Keillor tickets for September 4th, Jackson Browne tickets for August 31 and Randy Travis tickets for September 1. It doesn't matter what type of country fan you are there is a concert for everyone to enjoy. I am definitely most excited to get Jason Aldean tickets for August 28th. I love all of his songs specially "She's Country." Make sure you buy your Minnesota State Fair Grandstand tickets right away because they will be going very fast for every concert.

Country Concert in MN: Pat Green

I was so excited to hear that Pat Green is coming back to Minnesota! I got Pat Green tickets back in February to see him at The Cabooze when he came with Randy Houser. Pat Green put on an amazing show and I would go to his concert just to hear him sing "Let Me" because he does such an awesome job singing that song live. The rest of his songs sound great as well and he has a way of connecting with everyone at the concert which makes the experience even better! I can't wait to purchase my Pat Green tickets for August 18Th. It is hard to find Minnesota Zoo Amphitheater tickets because they sell out so fast but I am hoping to get enough so that I can surprise a few of my friends! :)
