Top 7 Country Concerts to Catch in 2017

By Allie Mitchell on January 30, 2017

Music is one of the many things that brings people together. And whether or not you like the type of music another person listens to, music will always be something people can talk about and have discussions over.

Where there is music, there will always be concerts and people will always attend those concerts. Concerts are a place where people who love the same type of music, at least for that night, can come together and be a part of something in one venue. With concerts comes friends, fun, and an all-around good time, but the idea behind concerts is that you have to get tickets and of course gather the money to get those tickets.

You also have to be aware of who is going to be in concert around the time that you want to go; there is no need wasting money on tickets to a concert for someone you don’t really love, when you could have saved up your money for someone you absolutely enjoy.

While on the topic of music, let’s narrow it down to one specific type of music that some people think only speaks to a certain type of person. And that is country music. I have known a lot of different people, from all different backgrounds and walks of life, who like country music. Of course, there is the complete country music where you just have to be a die-hard fan to really get into it, but then there is the pop country type of music that more people can relate to and you find more people getting into.

All in all, it is in the country genre and no matter what, someone in that genre is always having a concert. With the New Year here, it is time to make sure the fans know who will be making their way onto a concert stage. Not everyone on this list may be people you like or even know, but this isn’t a full list of every concert every in 2017 — just my condensed list:

1. Miranda Lambert: Everyone knows Lambert as having a beautiful voice and of course being the ex-wife of fellow country singer Blake Shelton. Regardless of her marital status, she will be on tour this year and it will no doubt be a hit. She will be present at some festivals and she has some fantastic shows prepared in August, so make sure that you get her new album, and sing along with her.

2. Blake Shelton: Speaking of Blake Shelton, he will be on tour as well. This star always has packed arenas and stadiums and will be heading on tour with his protégé RaeLynn. He was Billboard’s second biggest star last year, so no doubt he will surpass himself this year.

3. Martina McBride: McBride had an amazing tour last year that allowed her to have a two-month extension starting next month, so be prepared to hear more and be even more impressed than you already know you will be with one of the best voices in the genre. And that’s not just my opinion.

4. Tim McGraw & Faith Hill: The power country couple is heading out for a world domination type of tour this year and plans to completely take over the course of seven months, so get your tickets and prepare to be amazed. Their tour, Soul2Soul, has been thriving for some time now, so just expect that the best is yet to come.

5. Garth Brooks: Brooks made a comeback world tour in 2014 and has yet to stop making his fans extremely happy with the content he has given them. This country star has a way of enticing his fans by only letting out a few cities at a time, which really grinds our gears. But in those few cities he will play a decent number of shows and each show just ups the last, so you won’t be disappointed.

6. Maren Morris: She is a bit of a newbie, but her voice doesn’t show it. This star is out on her own and has a long line of headlining shows coming up and she even added more dates to her tour. This is one of the highly anticipated and nail-biting country tours to date so it would be best to get your tickets now before they get sold out and you are out of luck.

7. Eric Church: Between the months of January and May, Church is hitting 60 cities and has a big tour planned for all his fans. His tour has already begun to sell out, so if you don’t have your tickets now, I would advise you to get on that pronto so you can see one of country music’s most respected artists.
