Could it be true? In our back yard?

For just a few seconds when I heard about it, this was me:


Perhaps, not my finest moment, but I can hardly believe it myself. Blake Shelton will be in Iowa this summer. Let that sink in for a moment.

Here's the low-down and all the info you need:

WHO:  Blake Shelton

WHAT: One day concert

WHEN: Saturday, August 27, 2016

WHERE: Home of the Hawkeyes - Kinnick Stadium, Iowa City, IA. (It's the first-ever concert here)


It doesn't end with just that. Two more, big country acts will be named Monday morning (2/29).  All the proceeds benefit the Iowa Native Fund - "Iowans helping Iowans."
