Following Lady Gaga’s performance during halftime of the Super Bowl, country fans by the droves started posting who they want to see performing at next year’s big game!  That performer would be Carrie Underwood.  Why not?  Carrie is already the voice for Sunday night football so it would be a natural fit!
At least eight country stars that we know of attended the Super Bowl this past Sunday in Houston.  Kenny Chesney was there with his dad and Darius Rucker took his son.  Also there for the big game was Scotty McCreary, Lady Antebellum, Thomas Rhett, the guys from Old Dominion, Dustin Lynch and, of course, Luke Bryan, who sang the National Anthem!
Jon Pardi recently told Rolling Stone magazine about the time he won a songwriting contest as a college student in California!  He wrote a jingle called “The DUI Song!”  First prize was $300 and Jon did what all aspiring garage band musicians do—he used the money to buy a PA system for his band!
