Little Big Town brought their Painkiller tour to Duluth this year, joined by opening act Chris Stapleton. While LBT was an obvious crowd-pleaser with their many hit songs, many didn't know who Chris Stapleton was - at least before he hit the stage. His performance impressed many, and later this year, he went on to win some big awards and land one of his songs on the radio. Check out photos from the concert here.

Duting the Little Big Town concert at Amsoil Arena (which made an appearance earlier on this list), one lucky fan got the opportunity to have the band take some photos with her camera/selfie stick. Chris Allen put out the call to see who the fan was to see if they'd be willing to share some of those photos. His search was successful, with the lucky fan sharing these great pics.
Cathy's deep connections to the various communities around the area led to sharing a tip about some shady activity that many of you appreciated knowing about. See the story here.
