When Faith Hill recorded “Hey Baby Let’s go to Vegas” early in her career, it’s doubtful she had any idea that she’d be doing just that. But this month, she kicks off a 10-weekend headlining tour at the Venetian with her superstar husband, Tim McGraw. Meanwhile, one of country’s most beloved vocalists, Shania Twain, is taking up residency at nearby Caesars Palace. Both arrive on the strip just as Garth Brooks winds down his continuously sold-out appearances at the Wynn Resort, though there are rumors that the new Country Music Hall of Fame inductee might have a few encores in his system (details and dates have yet to be revealed). With all this country music descending on Sin City, there will be no shortage of entertainment—especially for the honky-tonk crowd—all the way through our annual pilgrimage to the Academy of Country Music Awards this spring. Which means it’s time to book your non-stop BNA-to-LAS—ASAP.
