Las Vegas has gone country

Well howdy, partners! How are y’all doin’? …It goes something like that, right? Well, regardless of if we have our country twang down to the dropped “g” or not, we definitely know how to throw one helluva country celebration when the right occasion strikes.

For the next two weeks we advise you to saddle up because Vegas is going country with the National Finals Rodeo in town and, as usual, the Entertainment Capital of the World is outdoing itself with a pretty impressive lineup of the who’s who of country music.

Whether you’re looking to rock your Watermelon Crawl or just get back to your roots (c’mon, we all have a little country in us), throw on your pearl snap, polish your boots and get ready for dozens of shows from country music icons including Merle Haggard, Alabama, Reba, Brooks & Dunn, and many more.

Read on to figure out which show will be your first stop during NFR.

Comments

Trading one desert for another, I moved to Las Vegas from Arizona nearly three years ago. It was something about the sparkling lights and the all-encompassing entertainment factor that persuaded me to swap cacti for casinos and dry heat for well…even drier heat. And while I do love a good show, I will always keep true to my country girl ways seeing that I am an absolute sucker for a good country concert and will always indulge the opportunity to go out country dancing! But in a city that undoubtedly has some of the world’s best cuisine, a wild assortment of endless experiences, and of course phenomenal shows, Vegas certainly has that unparalleled good time vibe that can make a city slicker out of just about anyone… including myself!
