Rascal Flatts concert in Minnesota at the Xcel Energy Center

Rascal Flatts are coming back to Minnesota and I couldn't be more excited! Rascal Flatts is hands down my favorite country group and I am so excited to get the chance to see them for the third time at the Xcel Energy Center on September 19, 2009. I have been a huge fan of Rascal Flatts since their 1st single "Prayin' For Daylight" was released in 2000. One of the first tattoos I ever got was "God Bless The Broken Road" on the back of my leg because that is such an amazing song sang by an even more amazing band. I can't wait to hear all my favorite songs live again like "While You Loved Me", "I'm Moving On", "Melt", "Feels Like Today", "What Hurts the Most", "Love You Out Loud", "Take Me There", "Every Day", "Bob That Head" and of course their newest hit "Here Comes Goodbye." The first time I saw Rascal Flatts was when I sneaked into the Rascal Flatts concert at the Minnesota State Fair Grandstand (which I don't recommend) but I just wanted to see them so badly and the Rascal Flatts tickets were sold out. The second time I saw them was at WeFest (I actually paid for these tickets). Both times I saw them they put on the best country concerts I have ever seen. All the members of the band have great energy and make you feel like you are part of the show no matter where you are sitting. I can not wait to see Rascal Flatts again and this time I will make sure to get Xcel Energy Center tickets before they are sold out!

I can't believe that summer is half way done and we have already passed the 4th of July! Luckily we still have some time to make the best out of the rest of the summer. My perfect summer is going up to cabins, bonfires, playing on the lake, softball and just hanging out with friends in the warm weather. All of these things are made much better by fun summer country songs playing in the background. Great American Country came up with a list of the Top 20 songs of the summer and it included:
1. Carrie Underwood - All-American Girl
2. Blake Shelton - Some Beach

6. Kenny Chesney - Summertime
7. Kenny Chesney - No Shoes, No Shirt, No Problems
8. Alan Jackson - Good Time

I know I have listen to all of these songs this summer while playing in the sun and love them all! Let me know what you think of this list is it right on? Did they miss one of your favorite songs? Is there a song on here you don't think should be? I would love to hear of other great country songs to add to my summer play list!
