Thank you to Travel Alberta for the photos. Read more

Well this story just got a whole lot weirder. As I told you earlier, a promoter at this weekend's Jukebox Music Festival in Anderson, California unceremoniously told Alan Jackson this morning that he wasn't invited to perform any longer at the festival because apparently Jackson's rescheduled concert on Friday had messed up ticket sales for his performance tonight at the festival. At least that was the story Jackson's crew was given. But if that wasn't strange enough, the promoters of the festival actually shut the festival down hours early without giving other performers the chance to perform as scheduled tonight,... Read more

Wow, how often does a massive music festival just up and change locations? I can't remember ever hearing of a time, although I'm sure it happens from time to time. The annual Coachella and and it's country counterpart Stagecoach Festival in Indio, California are two of those music festivals that people will make plans for and be excited for the entire year and plan their entire vacations around. They're definitely big ones with literally everyone who's anyone in music stopping by to perform for the fans. Well now it appears that due to a proposed admission tax that a city... Read more

The "New Kid in Town", Scotty McCreery has made his mark on the country music world since his 2011 win on American Idol. His debut album, "Clear As Day" brought us two smash hits. The album’s debut single, “I Love You This Big,” became a Top 15 hit and enjoyed the highest-charting debut for a new artist since at least 1984, while the video for the song hit No. 1 in just a week after its release. He recorded his debut album while starring in the American Idols Live! Tour, which Pollstar ranked as one of the nation’s Top 15... Read more

When an artist has the task of following country legend Wanda Jackson, and performing before country music icons, The Gatlin Brothers it may seem like a great undertaking. Texas native Jack Ingram was just the man to take this on. He knew it was an honor to be put into this situation and he was proud to be a part of an amazing cast of characters. From the moment Jack walked onto the Palamino stage on Sunday, May 1st, you knew you were in for the best of this artist. He started out "Jonesin for Haggard", watching a "Mustang Burn",...

They braved and survived the first day of Stagecoach, and are ready for round two, on this the final day. True to form the early birds were lined up to enter, making the mad general admission dash to stake their ground and settle in for the day. The day started out in the Mane Stage with a great set of harmonies from the Harters, followed my new young artist Joanna Farmer, who can draw you in with her soft but outgoing southern charm sound. Easton Corbin enters the stage at 4:45 and no doubt this young man will kick this... Read more
