Tim McGraw and Brandtly Gilbert to hit the Calgary Stampede stage

BREAKING! If you thought the big name acts for the Calgary Stampede were going to end after year 100, you are mistaken. Tim McGraw with special guest, up-and-comer Brantley Gilbert, will be playing Thursday July 11, 2012 at the Saddledome.

Tim is no Garth Brooks, but he's a pretty big deal - like, Taylor Swift basically became famous because she wrote a song about listening to his music (see Tim McGraw - a rare song by Swift that isn't about an ex-boyfriend).

You know what would be a bigger deal? If they brought back the Brothers of the Sun tour for one last stop in Calgary. Still pissed that I didn't go to Texas to see McGraw and Kenney Chesney. Seriously.

This will officially be announced tomorrow with ticket details and prices - but really, all you need to know is Tim + Stampede = Truck Yeah.

UPDATE: Tickets start at $49.50 and go on sale to the general public on Sat Nov 24 at 10 a.m.  Presales start on Nov 21. Tickets can be purchased through Ticketmaster.
