Another Christmas is upon us and soon to follow a new year. 2016 has been very eventful for us and we could not do what we do without all of you.

The great opportunities that The ACCA’s, The ACM weekend and CMA Fest allowed us this year were also memorable. A very important part of what we continue to do is for those who follow us via the blog or our social media platforms. Every experience has been an adventure and we also gained some learning curves that we are truly thankful for. ... read more!

Maren and Kelsea Ballerini are included in the overall Best New Artist category, competing with The Chainsmokers. Chance The Rapper and Anderson. Paak. (I am officially lost with those artists) ... read more!
Some may think it’s too early for exciting 2017 concert news but we don’t, especially with two talents such as the always witty Vince Gill and the reliably wry Lyle Lovett. They are reuniting for a nine city tour that will take place March 2017. After teaming up for a series of concerts in 2015 and 2016, Vince and Lyle saw that the shows were so successful that they decided to extend the tour. ... read more!
