It is almost Spring and before long the major country concert tours will spread their wings and take off all over America making millions of country music lovers happy. Which big names will be around the region this summer?

If you are ever wondering just check Pollstar on the web. All you have to do is plug in the name of an artist in the search box and hit enter, and it will spit out all booked concerts for the artist.

Here are some big names and the closest I have found them to us for the Summer season in concert.

Kenny Chesney- He will be playing 2 dates at Mohegan Sun Arena.

Lady Antebellum- They will be at the Champlain Valley Expo in Burlington, Vermont.

Jason Aldean- Closet show I could find for Jason was in May at the Comcast theater in Hartford, CT.

Brad Paisley- I see he will be at Darien Lake in July.

More big tours will be coming soon, and before you know it WGNA will be lifting the curtain on Countryfest 2011. That will be a party. It always has been, and always will be.

Have fun at whatever Summer concert you and the family plan on attending and take lots of pictures. Send them to me at jake@wgna.com and we'll put them on the site so everyone can see how much fun you're having.
