Coming Soon To Chicago: A Little More Country!

Less than a month ago I was just a simple Minnesota girl that loved listening to country music while sitting on the tailgate of Ryan's truck, sitting at the local bars with my friends, sitting around a bonfire or just hanging out at friends houses. In a blink of an eye I find myself putting my two weeks in at work, packing up all my things, saying goodbye to family/friends and moving to Chicago to be with my amazing boyfriend. When you think of Chicago your first thought isn't exactly going to be country music but I am hoping I am able to change that just a little bit! I haven't figured out how I am going to accomplish this yet but I will have a lot of time on my hands so Chicago better watch out! :) My heart will always be in Minnesota so don't worry I will still post a ton of good information about Minnesota country concerts! I know there will be many times when I miss my friends and family but I know if I turn on some great country songs it will make me feel a lot better and a lot closer to them. To my family, friends and co-workers, I love you all! "I will count the days and the miles back home to you..."

Is Toby Keith Coming To Minnesota?

Back in April I wrote a post about Toby Keith's Tour making a stop in Minnesota. A few months ago on his website their was a schedule date for Toby Keith to perform in Minnesota on July 16th but that date is no longer on his website. Has anyone heard if Toby Keith is no longer coming to Minnesota and the reason behind it or has he just changed the date? I am a little confused about the whole thing and am just looking for some answers :) Thank you for your help!

Jerrod Niemann's New Single "Lover, Lover"

A few weeks ago my roommate came home and told me about a new country song that she absolutely love and she introduced me to one of my new favorite country songs "Lover, Lover" by Jerrod Niemann. Jerrod Neimann has been releasing songs since 2006 but this was his first top 10 single. Not only does Jerrod Neimann sing he also writes songs for very famous country artist like Jamey Johnson, Neal McCoy, Julie Roberts and wrote Garth Brooks hit single "Good Ride Cowboy." Jerrod Niemann has such a great voice and this song has such a good rhythm and fun lyrics to sing along with I am not surprised at all that it is a top 10 hit. If you haven't heard it yet I highly suggest taking a few minutes to listen to it because I am sure you will love it too!

"Lover, Lover"
Well the truth, well it hurts to say
I'm gonna pack up my bags and I'm gonna go away
I'm gonna split, I can't stand it
I'm gonna give it up and quit and aint never coming back

Girl but before I get to going, I've got to say,
I know you used to love me but that was yesterday,
And the truth, I won't fight it,
When the love starts burning you got to do what's right.

Woh-oh lover, lover lover, you don't treat me no good no more,
Woh-oh lover, lover lover, you don't treat me no good no more,

Well the truth, yeah it hurts to say,
I'm gonna pack up my bags and I'm gonna go away,
I'm gonna split, I can't stand it,
I'm gonna give it up and quit, ain't never coming back

Girl but before I get to going, I've got to say,
There was a time, oh woman, when you used to shake it for me,
but now, all you do is just treat me cold,
Ain't gonna take it no more, gonna walk out the door,

Lover, lover lover, you don't treat me no good no more,
No good no more more more more
Lover, lover lover you don't treat me good no more,
Yeah yeah yeah yeah

Well I'd wait up for you almost every night
and I'm hurting so bad cause you don't treat me right
Oh woman, oh woman you know I love you so
but you're so mean to me baby, I'm walking out the door,
Oh lover, oh lover, yeah-yeah

No good no more more more more

I know you used to love me in every way
but now im giving it up, and I'm tired of crying babe
I can't stand it no longer, it hurts me to say,
but I'm packing up my bags and going far away,
Hey lover, oh lover yeah-yeah

Lover, lover lover, you dont treat me no good no more
Lover, lover lover, you dont treat me no good no more

Kellie Pickler in Concert!

Kellie Pickler will be playing at the Jackpot Junction Casino in Minnesota on July 9, 2010! Kellie Pickler got her start on American Idol just like many other country stars including Carrie Underwood, Josh Gracin and Bucky Covington. I have always like Kellie Pickler as a country artist and as a person. She had a very rough life growing up with both parents being in and out of jail and having to be raised by her grandparents. Even after growing up in that environment she seems like such a fun, happy and light-hearted person who likes to have a good time no matter what she is doing. Kellie Pickler's first single was "Red High Heels" which reached #15 on the country charts. Kellie Pickler continues to release amazing singles like "I Wonder," "Things That Never Cross A Man's Mind," "Don't You Know You're Beautiful," "Didn't You Know How Much I Loved You" and my Personal favorite "Best Days Of Your Life." Kellie Pickler has opened for huge country artist including Brad Paisley, Rascal Flatts and Taylor Swift but is now headlining her own tour. Kellie Pickler tickets are still available and I think this would be a very fun show to go see!!!

Josh Turner at Mystic Lake Casino in Minnesota

Josh Turner will be performing in Minnesota at the Mystic Lake Casino on August 19th, 2010! I have always liked Josh Turner because of his unique/distinctive voice! Josh Turner released his first single "Long Black Train" in 2003 and it spent more than 40 weeks on the Billboard country charts. Josh Turner has released many great singles since then including: "Your Man," "Would You Go With Me," "Firecracker," "Another Try" which he recorded with Trish Yearwood and his newest single "Why Don't We Just Dance." I am so glad that Josh Turner is performing at Mystic Lake Casino because it is such a great venue to watch country artist in. It is a pretty small venue so no matter where you sit you are close to the performer. I have never seen Josh Turner in concert before so I don't know what to expect but I have no doubt that it will be great! Josh Turner tickets are still available for his performance at Mystic Lake Casino. If you have had the chance to see Josh Turner in Concert please leave a comment and let me know what you thought of him.
