It’s time for some good ol’ line-dancing in the ‘burgh when Tim McGraw comes to town on Saturday, July 30 with Luke Bryan and the Band Perry.
This cowgirl is ready to boot scoot her way to all the old and new favorites McGraw has to offer and it never gets old. Famous for his iconic country hits like “Indian Outlaw,” “Don’t Take the Girl,” and “Just to See You Smile” among many, many more – it’s easy to see why he is such a fan favorite. With more than 20 years of music under his belt, 11 consecutive albums, and over 20 #1 singles, McGraw is a force to be rekon with in the music world.
If you fell in love with McGraw for his southern voice, surely many fans fell in love with his numerous acting roles on major motion pictures like “The Blind Side” with Sandra Bullock, “Four Christmases” with Reese Witherspoon, and “Flicka” among others. If there’s still a doubt of his celebrity status in your mind, you could simply look at the hit song from Taylor Swift named after the country superstar, which skyrocketed her into fame.
McGraw is known for his very fun live performances which have included members of the military in the past, his children singing “Last Dollar (Fly Away)” on stage and sometimes even surprise appearances from his country superstar wife, Faith Hill. Simply put, you never know what might happen at a Tim McGraw show.
This year, Tim’s bringing out a few other good ol’ southern boys to join him on his Emotional Traffic tour like Luke Bryan. Bryan’s career really began in 2007 when his single “All My Friends Say” became an anthem for drinking crowds everywhere. He has since remained a name in the country music circuit not only for his own singing, but his writing as well. Bryan was part of the penmanship that composed Billy Currington’s iconic country hit, “Good Directions.”
In March, Bryan released his seveth single “Country Girl (Shake it for Me)” which has been taking the radio waves by storm, as well as the line dancing circuit. It also serves as the lead off single to his newest album due out in August of 2011.
Opening up the Emotional Traffic tour is The Band Perry who released their self-titled debut album in October 2010. While they may be fresh to the music circuit, they are someone to take notice of with their powerful lyrics and catchy tunes. This is one opening act you won’t want to miss.
Tickets are still available for this show and available wherever ticketmaster tickets are sold and online at www.ticketmaster.com ranging from $30 – $90. Grab your boots and come out for a great night of country music.
