Cowboys Tent is hosting FREE country concerts all weekend
Stampede is NEVER over! Well, that’s technically not true, but it sure feels like we’re getting a second go at it with the Cowboys Tent hosting free concerts ahead of this weekend’s CCMA Awards.
From Friday, September 6th until Sunday, September 8th, Calgarians will be blessed by live music and photo ops from some of country music’s biggest stars.
The Cowboys Tent will be rebranded as the CCMA Fan Village for the weekend and will sport everything a Stampede-lover could want. We’re talking games, beers, a live-band karaoke competition, and…yoga with goats? Damn, country music in 2019 is a different world.
Also, you’ll get the chance to see all the big-name artists that will be showcased at Sunday’s awards. Not a bad opportunity considering it’s a free event.
