Fans of Brooks and Dunn are going to be "boot scootin' booging" all night at the Denny Sanford PREMIER Center. They will be bringing all their hits to the Sioux Falls stage like "Brand New Man," "My Maria," "Rock My World," "Play Something Country," and "Hard Workin' Man" just to name a few. I am incredibly excited this country duo is finally coming to Sioux Falls. I remember seeing signs for their Las Vegas residency in November of 2021 and thinking, "Why can't they come to Sioux Falls?" Looks like my wish is granted!

There is another surprise...Brooks & Dunn are bringing their friend Scotty McCreery on the road with them! Scotty McCreery is known for being the Season 10 winner of American Idol. He's also known for his sultry country voice that is similar to country singer Josh Turner, who is one of Scotty's inspirations. Since then, he has released chart-topping songs like "Five More Minutes," "I Love You This Big," "The Trouble With Girls," and his recent single "Damn Straight."

When Scotty McCreery performed at the Sioux Empire Fair in 2018, I had the pleasure of interviewing him before the show. Scotty was my first country music interview as a professional reporter. He was a sweet guy and a great interview!

Best Bars in Sioux Falls

There is always something different to try when you visit a local Sioux Falls bar or brewery. There could be a specialty drink at one bar and a new beer recipe at the next.

This is a difficult decision just because there are so many great local options. Luckily, our friends at Yelp identified the top ten bars in Sioux Falls thanks to numerous reviews on each establishment.
