Hello to a new week, with some huge releases from some old friends, and one artist who just played a record number of shows at X-Cel Energy Center in St. Paul!

1.) Nick Jonas : “Nick Jonas”  -He is all grown up and the purity ring he wore when he was younger is long gone. We all heard news of the Jonas brother breakup a while ago and it seems the youngest brother has gone off in his own direction and is doing quite well for himself. I love his first single "Jealous" and have had a chance to check out some other tracks on his latest project and I must say I am impressed!

2,) Foo Fighters : “Sonic Highways” :The band got inspiration for this album while touring different cities through out the U.S. and also filming a documentary for HBO which Dave Grohl directed. No worries foo fans, the band did not disappoint!

3.) Garth Brooks: “Man Against Machine” He has been gone a while, but If you are Garth Brooks it does not really matter, he is back on tour selling out multiple shows including 11 in the Twin Cities with back to back shows in one night. He is such an incredible performer that his music knows no boundaries!
