2012 is a big year for big country Shows in the Albany Area. We have already had Rascal Flatts, Billy Currington, Zac Brown Band and Sugarland in town. Next Week is Brad Paisley's "Virtual Reality Tour". July 7th will bring us CountryFest 2012.  August 19th will see Toby Keith and Brantley Gilbert at SPAC and we will end the year with Carrie Underwood's "Blown Away" Tour at the Times Union Center on December 4th.

The County Fairs this summer will also bring us some great country music such as Diamond Rio and Bucky Covington at the Columbia County Fair and Justin Moore and Lonestar at the Dutchess County Fair. Alive At 5 will also have a Country night with Lee Brice on August 2nd.

There are so many great shows coming to town, but there is always that one artist that isn't making a stop that you really wish would.  So I ask you the Question:

There are plenty of other acts out there that I may have missed so feel free to add your pick in the comment box.
