Are you a super-fan or not? When AT&T U-verse® announced a FREE Lady Antebellum concert last Friday, May 31, I was so in. The special event was to celebrate the release of the band’s new album GOLDEN, taking place at Millennium Park’s Pritzker Pavilion.  There’s nothing like twanging along with your favorite country musicians with a cold beer in hand and …  Read more
