Chelsea Handler is a comedian who has her own show on E! called Chelsea Lately. Chelsea Lately is a hilarious talk show where Chelsea Handler talks about celebrities and events that have been in the news.

Miranda Lambert Concert in Minnesota!

Miranda Lambert is coming back to Minnesota but this time she is headlining her own concert! Miranda Lambert will be performing at the Verizon Wireless Center in Mankato, MN on May 7th. Opening for Miranda Lambert is country star Chris Young! Chris Young recently had a #1 hit with "Gettin' You Home (The Black Dress Song)." His newest single "The Man I Want To Be" is also a very big hit. I have written many blogs about Miranda Lambert and my love for her and her music so I won't go on and on like I usual do. I just want to mention that she has released another amazing single on March 8th called "The House That Built Me." If you haven't heard it yet I highly suggest you download it ASAP. Miranda Lambert and Chris Young tickets will sell out fast so don't wait to buy some.

"The House That Built Me"
I know they say you cant go home again.
I just had to come back one last time.
Ma?am I know you don't know me from Adam.
But these handprints on the front steps are mine.
And up those stairs, in that little back bedroom
is where I did my homework and I learned to play guitar.
And I bet you didn?t know under that live oak
my favorite dog is buried in the yard.

I thought if I could touch this place or feel it
this brokenness inside me might start healing.
Out here its like i'm someone else,
I thought that maybe I could find myself
if I could just come in I swear i'll leave.
Won?t take nothing but a memory
from the house that built me.

Mama cut out pictures of houses for years.
From ?Better Homes and Garden? magazines.
Plans were drawn, concrete poured,
and nail by nail and board by board
Daddy gave life to mama?s dream.

I thought if I could touch this place or feel it
this brokenness inside me might start healing.
Out here its like i'm someone else,
I thought that maybe I could find myself.
If I could just come in I swear i'll leave.
Won?t take nothing but a memory
from the house that built me.

You leave home, you move on and you do the best you can.
I got lost in this whole world and forgot who I am.

I thought if I could touch this place or feel it
this brokenness inside me might start healing.
Out here its like i'm someone else,
I thought that maybe I could find myself.
If I could walk around I swear i'll leave.
Won?t take nothing but a memory
from the house that built me.

Since the day I found out that Brooks & Dunn Last Rodeo Tour was making a stop at the Xcel Energy Center I have been patiently waiting for the tickets to go on-sale. When I found out that Jason Aldean was going to open for Brooks & Dunn I got even more excited and checked his website everyday to see when I could buy tickets. The day is finally here and I couldn't be more excited that I have tickets to see this amazing concert! Brooks & Dunn have been together since 1991 when they released their first album which went 6x Platinum. Brooks & Dunn are the most successful duo from any genre! They have released great singles like "Boot Scootin’ Boogie," "Believe," "You’re Gonna Miss Me When I’m Gone," "My Maria," "If You See Him/if You See Her," "That’s What It’s All About," "It’s Getting Better All the Time," "Play Something Country," "God Must Be Busy," "Put a Girl in It" and "Cowgirls Don’t Cry." After 19 years of recording and touring together Brooks & Dunn are calling it quits. I feel so lucky that I get to see one of their last ever concerts!

Brooks & Dunn Last Rodeo tickets will sell out very fast so don't wait till the last minutes to buy tickets for Brooks & Dunn's last tour together!

Country Concerts at The Rock in Minnesota

I was looking around to see which country artist would be performing in Minnesota in the next couple months and a lot of them had one thing in common....most of the country artist coming to Minnesota will be performing at The Rock Nightclub. I just wrote a blog about Jimmy Wayne coming to The Rock on March 6 and there will be many great country artist following him. LoCash Cowboys will be performing there on March 18th. LoCash Cowboys are up-and-coming artist who already have thousands and thousands of fans. Before LoCash Cowboys were signed to a record label they toured with Charlie Daniels and ZZ Top. LoCash Cowboys became very popular by just playing at different bars and made a large name for themselves. This is a concert I would not miss! James Otto will be performing at The Rock on April 9th. In 2007, James Otto released his #1 single "Just Got Started Lovin' You." James Otto has an amazing voice and a lot of great song that never became very popular but I would highly recommend listening to his cd and then go to his show. Justin Moore will be performing at The Rock on April 30th. Justin Moore released his first album on August 11, 2009. On that album are two of my new favorite country songs "Small Town USA" and "Backwoods." Finally, the artist I am most excited to see perform at The Rock is Josh Gracin. Josh Gracin was on the second season of American Idol. After he left American Idol, Josh Gracin became a very popular country artist. Josh Gracin came out with great singles like "I Want to Live," "Nothin' to Loose," "Stay With Me (brass bed)" and "We Weren't Crazy." I have always stayed a Josh Gracin fan and I can't wait to see him perform live! I know that all of these artist will be so fun/exciting to see and it is nice that it won't cost an arm and a leg to go to these shows. I went to The Rock to see David Nail and even though the Nightclub is very small and a little run-down it is still a fun atmosphere. Let me know if you have gone to any shows at this venue.
