The recent news that country-rockers John Mellencamp, Bob Dylan, and the Red-Headed stranger himself, Willie Nelson, are going on tour together this spring should make every blue-collar worker, songwriter wannabe, and small-town patriot happy. This is a musical troubador's dream team.
I can think of a few country dream teams I'd like to see on a stage nearby:
The Divas tour: three female performers who have all won Entertainer of the Year
The Vocal Extravaganza
: three of the most revered female vocalists in Country Music:
The New Blondes Tour
: well, two-thirds of this tour is already underway, as Pickler and Swift are hitting the road right now.
The Triple Threat tour
: all three here have written #1 songs, won "Male Vocalist of the Year" awards, and are amazing guitarists.
The Beach Bum tour
: Since Chesney is trying to hard to become Jimmy Buffett anyway, put them on tour together already...
The Stone Cold Country tour
Blake Shelton (okay, so he's more into roping than surfing, but his hit "Some Beach" would fit in nicely).
: Three classic voices with classic country songs.
The Legends Tour
: (does this really need any explanation?)
You have my wishlist, so what trio of artists would YOU
