Carrie Underwood CD: Blown Away

It’s been three years since Carrie Underwood fanatics heard any new music from the “Good Girl” singer. Thankfully, that all that will change this Tuesday (May 1) when Carrie releases her fourth studio album Blown Away.

I'm definitely planning on previewing the songs on Itunes and probably purchasing most, if not all of them. Let me know what you think of the new CD!

Brothers of the Sun Tour: Kenny Chesney & Tim McGraw

Wow. How pumped are you for the Boys of Country to be performing at our very own Target Field? The Brothers of the Sun Tour will feature Kenny Chesney and Tim McGraw... basically two of the best country artists of all time.

You won't want to miss this show. Seriously... there will be nothing better this summer. Get your tickets!! DO IT!
