It has been a long few years with concerts being postponed and cancelled and tours being reworked. Of course, this has all been due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Now that there seems to be somewhat of a light at the end of the tunnel, I am already starting to dream about 2022 and what that means in terms of big concert announcements once again!

That is not to say that we haven't had a few concerts over the past few years. Over the summer, Aaron Tippin headlined a show at Bayfront Festival Park along with Whiskey Trail and Thompson Square. A Minnesota native named Jake Rose was also at the show.

Jake Rose joined me after the concert to talk about all things Minnesota, how it felt playing a show in his home state and his career in Nashville. He is very successful, most recently having had a major hand in Brian Kelley's solo album.

Now, as we head into the last part of the year, more concert announcements have been rolled out for next year and I can't wait. Keith Urban recently announced a world tour with a stop at the Xcel Energy Center next year.

Thomas Rhett also announced a special one-night-only show at the Xcel to help Minnesotans ring in New Year's Eve. Cole Swindell will be joining him at that show and it seems like an amazing way to usher in 2022!

You can always keep up with which concerts are coming to the Northland and beyond with our concert calendar. In the meantime, let's daydream about these fifteen country stars that should come to Duluth.
