With Coachella just around the corner, TickPick and I have teamed up to present with Country Heartbeat readers my ideal country music festival! I have so many favorites that they had to divide the festival between two days! If you’ve been following this blog for a while now, it’s pretty obvious who my favorite country artists are. Whenever someone asks who my favorite artist is, I ask them if I can give them a top-5 or top-10 list instead, because it’s entirely way too hard to narrow down. I then proceed to list the above 10 artists, and a few others… depending on whose show I may have seen recently and re-fell in love with.
Who else is counting down to The Week Las Vegas Goes Country? The schedule has been finally announced so that all of us going can start to plan our weekends! I’ve already printed and highlighted the artists that I absolutely cannot miss, and then those whom I would like to see, but willing to miss if it interferes with a meet and greet or something. I’m still undecided about Sunday, because I really want to try to find a way into the awards show at night… however, Sunday has THE BEST LINEUP! Ahhhh! I’m thinking festival then “home” (aka back to the hotel) to nap then shower and get all fancy for the after parties?! I guess I will play it by ear and see what my friends want to do! 🙂 Let me know in the comments below if you will be there!

I’m so exited to share with y’all that I’ve officially written my first guest post for the website, Stage Right Secrets!
As all of you may already know, my passion for the ACM Awards and “The Week Vegas Goes Country” runs deep. My first trip in 2011 changed my life! All of my dreams of finding a soulmate and starting a family did a complete circle and I realized that I wanted to be a part of the country music scene that I fell so deeply in love with that weekend in Vegas. It became a goal to find a way to get there every year afterward! Since then, I’ve gone in 2011, 2013 and 2014. (I had no interest in going last year when it was in Dallas, TX.)
Are you planning on attending the 3 day festival this year? If so, take a look at these tips and tricks from a seasoned veteran, so that you’re fully prepared!
I’m the dreamer, soaking up every line Searching for truth all the time The believer, that music can save a soul The one who’s at every show, in the front row, Singin’…
Trying my best to not be a “basic white girl” right now, but… I can’t even. I can’t even get over the goosebumps that I felt hearing this song for the first time today, I can’t even describe to you how much joy my heart felt and how much that I could relate to every note and every lyric. I was literally blown away when I heard Charles Kelley’s new song, “The Driver” on WPOR this morning. Upon returning home and immediately looking up the lyrics/video and downloading it from iTunes, I discovered that Eric Paslay and Dierks Bentley also collaborate on what is SURE to be the 2016 ACM Vocal Event of the Year… if not DECADE. This song is going to soar to the top of the charts and win many, many awards. This masterpiece was beautifully written by Charles Kelley, Eric Paslay and Abe Stoklasa. It’s the story of the road… these artists on tour that pour their hearts and souls into every show. Me? I’m one of those dreamers, a believer, a singer… at every show, in the front row. I wouldn’t have it any other way! Please take a look and listen! You won’t be disappointed!
