2013 Country Music Concerts – Partying Like Rock Stars
While many of the more talked about festivals each year are comprised of rock, indie, rap and R&B stars, there are plenty of big time and big money country concerts happening at a sold out football stadium (and river) near you. Country music has evolved over the years with new artists, new topics and new sounds, but one constant has been the support extended by established artists to emerging ones who are gaining popularity and adding to their resume of chart-topping hits. The result is tours with a set of artists you may think of as double – and even triple – headliners. Team a couple of tickets like this together over a whole weekend and you get festivals that descend on towns with coolers of beer and thousands upon thousands of cowboy boots.
So what makes a country music concert special? Quite frankly, a country concert experience is based on the a lot of the same characteristics of every other genre – music you like and friends, both new and old, with whom you want to spend time. Country music’s standard themes of love, loss, partying and patriotism make most songs easy to identify with, and the kind of lyrics and kind of music used make them even easier to sing along to. Whether you’re discovering a new artist or seeing your favorite crooner for the tenth time, a country music concert ticket is your pass to spend some time singing and dancing your night away without a care in the world.
