…with country music. Ask anyone I work with. Which is why I’m so excited to live in Des Moines, where we have not 1, but 2 awesome country radio stations. Little did I know that when I moved to Des Moines after I graduated high school it was such a hub for Nashville’s music tradition. Which is why it makes me so happy to work here at the Iowa Events Center, where we get so many great country acts. Two on our lineup right now: Zac Brown Band and George Strait. Um, hello? Two of the biggest names in country music? I’ll take it, and pass on big kudos to our team for bringing in such quality acts for the public’s enjoyment.
The CMA Awards are on tonight (hence the timing of this blog post) so I felt like celebrating the fact that we have such great acts on our lineup. You never know who else we are going to bring in. For your enjoyment, some music videos from Zac Brown Band (Chicken Fried, Live – a classic), a George Strait medley, and the always lovely Martina McBride, who is joining George on Feb. 24. Zac Brown Band and Martina are scheduled to appear tonight – can’t wait to see them!
