Thursday night we meet up with some good friends at an East side country venu and danced to some of our favorite songs. Really enjoyed getting to hang with John June, Robert Moreno and Monica Mendez.


Friday night was super fun. Started off at Bianchi’s North and listened to Andy Hersey. This guy really puts on a great show! If you ever have a chance to see him don’t miss it. Stopped at The Station where Caiden Brewer was playing to a packed house. As always the beers were cold and we enjoyed a warm welcome from all. Dos Bros was at Lil Abners Steak House. Scotty and Gavin are always a great hit no matter where there playing. We wrapped up our evening dancing with friends at a mid-town bar.  Tucson Country Music listened to a local Tucson band perform Chris Stapleton’s – Broken Halos in tribute to Dominic Romero. Dominic’s family is still looking for answers. If you have any information please contact 88-CRIME or call 911. You can read more about Dominic here.


Saturday found Tucson Country Music at Garth Brooks in Glendale, AZ. Seeing this country legend in person was truly a once in a lifetime experience.
