It’s hard to top 2017, but 2018 is sure gonna try! So, start the saving and get ready for these awesome shows

1) 1/19 Chase Rice – House of Blues AND Granger Smith – Paradise Rock Club

I’ve placed these two as one entry because they’re on the same night. The trouble here is, HOW DO YOU CHOOSE?! They both have brand new albums out and with that means plenty of new songs that you probably haven’t had the opportunity to see them perform live yet, but you can’t be two places at once! But, it’s 2018 – why haven’t we come up with the technology yet to be two places at once? That’s the real question, here.

2) 2/1 Brantley Gilbert – DCU Center AND Chris Young – Tsongas Center in Lowell

Like the first, how in the heck do you choose?! Maybe it’s based on which is closer to you? Maybe it’s as simple as a coin flip. But, the truth is, if you do that as soon as that coin is in the air, you’ll know who you want to see more.

3) 2/2 Walker Hayes – Paradise Rock Club

I can’t say that anyone else on this list has popped up onto the scene with more of an explosion than Walker Hayes has this year. He went from relatively unknown to, well, not. His hit single “You Broke Up With Me” is currently flying up the charts, his debut album is out now called “Boom!” and who wouldn’t want to soak in a little bit of Hayes to kick off their 2018?!

Valentines week, with Cole Swindell: Enough said.

5) 2/17 CMT Next Women Of Country – Chevalier Theatre

After the year women have had, in the entertainment industry, especially – it’s time we show our support and rally behind these up and coming talented ladies!

6) 4/27 Brett Eldredge – Orpheum Theatre

I like to call him the “underdog,” because while fans go CRAZY for him, he hasn’t seem to hit that country A-list status just yet for some reason. He’s clearly not one to miss, though based on how excited fans were when this show was announced!

7) 6/16 Tim McGraw/Faith Hill – SNHU Arena

Two for the price of one! Hit after hit after hit after – uh, you get it! This is one NOT to miss!

8) 7/11 Shania Twain – TD Garden

A little old, a little new – there’s nothing like seeing the greats of country live in person and it’s been a minute since we’ve had the chance to see Shania! Now’s the time!

9) 7/27 & 7/28 Taylor Swift – Gillette Stadium

Holy 2017 for Taylor Swift! She’s won court cases, graced magazine covers, broken all sorts of records and announced a stadium tour that has lit people up with excitement! It’s safe to say her “Reputation” is pretty good with concert goers!

10) 8/24 & 8/25 Kenny Chesney – Gillette Stadium

He’s coming back and he feels right at home when he hits the stage at Gillette –  we can’t wait to sing along to “Boston” and all of Chesneys greatest hits to round out the summer!
