Finally, Trisha Yearwood’s greatest hits album Prizefighter is available in stores and on GhostTunes this week.
It’s almost the weekend, that means it’s almost time to see some live country music. This weekend there are three acts that will bring their live shows to the region. Dustin Lynch will perform in front of a sold out crowd at The Charlie Horse in West Bridgewater, MA on Thursday night. It’s Lynch’s first stop to the Northeast in a few months. On Friday night, Royale in Boston will welcome Love & Theft and Joel Crouse. It’s the first stop of Love & Theft’s Night That You’ll Never Forget Tour, so they’ll be sure to put on a hell of a show. You can still grab tickets to the event here, and note the early 6 PM start time. Saturday night features two options, Love & Theft will bring their tour to the campus of Fairfield University and Thompson Square will headline the sold out KIX 100.9 Hatfield Bonfire in Hatfield, MA. The show features Lindsey Ell, Lindsay Labelle, Chickenwire, and Bobby Bones & The Raging Idiots as openers.
