The number of Country shows coming Upstate New York in the months ahead is getting pretty impressive.

The list of shows coming to the Capital Region for the back-end of the year has gotten very impressive very quickly. With the Zac Brown Band, Lady A , Brothers Osborne, and more coming we have LOTS to look forward to. The same applies to a lot of venues that are not too far from the Albany area. Now we can add Brantley Gilbert and Toby Keith to the impressive list of shows in the Capital Region and the surrounding areas.

Toby is set to perform at the Orange County Speedway in Middletown on Sunday, August 1st, and will be joined by Clay Walker. Brantley will make the trek to Middletown on Thursday, August 26th. You can get tickets and more info on both shows here. 

Of course, we missed out on seeing Brantley Gilbert at Countryfest last summer, so it will be great to finally have him back in the region. Toby Keith and Clay Walker will be another hit-laden show. Plus, they have another show in the region in Utica at the Adirondack Bank Center Friday, July 30th, which has been rescheduled a few times through the pandemic.

The speedway itself is getting pretty active with concerts, as they also have several rock shows this summer including Blackberry Smoke Sunday, June 27th, Everclear & Living Colour Friday July 2nd, George Throogood Friday, August 13th, Collective Soul, Friday August 27th, and Cheap Trick Sunday, September 5th. See the full schedule of events at the raceway here.

LOOK: Here are the 50 best beach towns in America

Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.
