Eric Church always puts on an amazing show. This time around he’ll be doing it solo. His tour is called Holdin’ My Own and he’s going to have to, because he doesn’t have any opening acts. check him out when it hits the Staples Center on March 31st.

The first weekend is coming up April 7-8th.

The ACMs is a great night of country music. Last year Luke Bryan and Dierks Bentley hosted the event and did a great job. Hopefully the pair will be back for around show.

4. Tim McGraw and Faith Hill’s Soul 2 Soul Tour
Tim and Faith are going to hit the road again on their Soul 2 Soul tour. I went to their Soul 2 Soul tour back in 2007 and it was amazing. I even saw their show in Las Vegas. Believe you’ll want to check this out. They’ll be at the Staples Center on July 14th.
3. K-Frog’s 27th Birthday Bash
It’s just a few weeks away, but we are celebrating big time! Darius Rucker and Trent Harmon will be on hand to get the night rockin’. I’m a big fan of Darius, even as far back as the Hootie and Blowfish days. Then you throw in Trent Harmon and you really have a party. He has an amazing voice. The big show takes place on February 17th at Morongo Casino Resort and Spa. Win your way in by listening to K-Frog.

This year’s event is set for September 29th-October 1st. Unfortunately, we don’t have the line up yet, but judging by years past it’s going to rock.

Stagecoach is always a good time. People count down for months to this big party in the desert. This year we’re getting headliners like Dierks Bentley, Shania Twain, and Kenny Chesney. Plus they always throw in some country legends and some rock acts too. Stagecoach is going down April 28th-30th at the Empire Polo Grounds.
