Chris Young is a huge football fan, often posting commentary during games and bantering with his fans on social media. With a break in his touring schedule that coincides with Super Bowl Sunday, Chris and his pals have decided to take a last-minute trip to Las Vegas which, of course, means a little bit of gambling.

“It’s a great match up and the Seahawks are strong, but I’m laying a crap load of money on the Broncos,” Chris said. “I’m a diehard Dallas Cowboys fan, but early in the season I thought the Broncos would make a run deep run into the playoffs. I have Knowshon Moreno on my fantasy football team. I’ve never spent Super Bowl weekend in Vegas and I’m looking forward to having fun and hopefully, ‘what happens in Vegas doesn’t stay in Vegas’ and comes home with me in my wallet.” Continue Reading

“2013 was a really exciting year for dance-oriented Country Music,” Bianca Valentino, Venue Marketing Specialist at Marco Club Connection, said. “The radio was full of high-energy, up-tempo hits, and the clubs were, too. There was a great mix of established artists like Blake Shelton, and a second huge club record from Florida Georgia Line, while the dance-community definitely found its own favorites in high energy tracks like Laura Bell Bundy’s “Two Step”, and “Booze Cruise” from Blackjack Billy. We continue to see growth year-to-year in the audience who gravitate towards this music and these venues.”
