Miranda Lambert Made Her Denver Show…AMAZING!!

Got a chance to see Miranda Lambert in Denver Colorado at the Pepsi Center with LANCO and Casey Donahew. Miranda is still a bad ass y’all! It was a make good show due to her having to cancel when she was sick. Miranda is all better now and she sounded AMAZING!

The show was packed even on a Monday night. Talked with her for a few minutes backstage while she insisted we have a jack and coke (we did). Miranda had to cancel a few shows earlier this year because of bronchitis. She said she hated to cancel any of her shows…but when you lose your voice completely…it’s the smart thing to do. She took a little bit of time off to get back to 100%. We also agreed that washing your hands and make good shows on a Monday night is good for everyone! Seriously…wash your hands people!

Neal McCoy’s Bus Went Down In Flames!

We are so glad Neal McCoy and his crew are okay. Neal McCoy live streamed his tour bus going up in flames and encouraged concerned fans to make a donation to his preferred charity instead of himself. Neal is truly one of the nicest guys you can ever meet. We had the privilege of hanging out with him in Las Vegas for New Years a few years ago and we couldn’t stop laughing. He knows how to own a stage and his music is pretty damn good too! Be sure to check out his Facebook page for the pledge of allegiance every morning! He never misses a morning of doing our pledge!

Travis Denning Played Some Kerosene!

Travis Denning is an all around bad ass! He can play guitar with the best of them! He loves Pantera, The Allman Brothers and he can play the hell out of Miranda Lambert’s Kerosene! Recently got a chance to see Travis at the World Famous Grizzly Rose in Denver Colorado and he impressed me…again! He gets better every time I see him play live! It might have ben the fact that I was 4 Jack and Cokes deep but I know I’m a fan of this guy! You can check out Travis Denning on Instagram @travisrdenning and you’ll love his Bachelorette/Bachelor After A Few series he does! Trust me!
