I asked and you answered. If you could bring ONE COUNTRY ARTISTS to the Treasure Valley, who do you book?
There were no wrong answers when it came to answering this on Facebook. We saw answers like Johnny Cash to Jon Pardi. Old Dominion who's going to be here February 24 at ExtraMile Arena, so we check that one off of the list, Luke Combs will be on the blue turf in May of next year and there's another we can cross of the list.
Kelli Phelps must be a big fan of Morgan Wallen because she says, "Morgan Wallen, and again, and again, and again, and again.. "
AJ Martinson got a lot of attention on his suggestion of Bailey Zimmerman, and I totally agree. I would love to see Bailey Zimmerman in the Treasure Valley!
Would love for you to jump on in and let us know who you would like to see in the Treasure Valley! I like where Kristen's head is at bringing back some older artist.
Kristen if you do see this Alabama is touring and they do have some dates to wrap up the year, if your a big FAN!

There were also a couple of names that I saw that really surprised me as well, like Cooper Alan, Drew Baldrige, and Chapel Hart. The reason I say that is because Cooper Alan is big in the TikTok space, Drew has been doing this for a very long time and hasn't had a ton of success on the radio but I love Drew and he's a super good dude with great music! Chapel Hart made their big debut on America's Got Talent.
But who do the majority of you want to see according to this Facebook post... drumroll please....
Are you ready?....
Are you confused? You should be.... If It's not Willie Nelson, then you know it has to be... The King!
We've seen it countless times George Strait riding off into the sunset, which only means there's a really good chance he will jump right back on to that horse and make his way into the Treasure Valley, right?
George is wrapping up the year with several different shows, which you can check out on his website.
PICTURES: Look Inside George Strait's Spectacular Mansion
George Strait is selling his one-of-a-kind mansion in Texas, and he's actually reduced his price considerably. The country legend is asking $6.9 million for his 7,925-square-foot home that includes three bedrooms, four full bathrooms and two half-baths on a hilltop in a very exclusive area of San Antonio.
The house sits on 12.2 acres and includes a gourmet kitchen, separate his and her bathrooms and closets and 14 hand-sculpted masonry fireplaces. The main house is wired for surround sound throughout, and it also features outdoor living spaces including a patio with built-in grill, sink, icemaker and refrigerator. There's also an infinity pool/spa and a sports court, a workout room with a private bathroom and sauna, and a walk-in safe room.
George + Norma Strait: 22 Cute-as-Heck Photos of the High School Sweethearts
The King of Country Music has a queen, and she's been around since long before he was bestowed that title. George Strait and his wife Norma are high school sweethearts, married since the early '70s.
To country radio station the Bull 100.3, Strait calls Norma "the first girl I ever loved." The two went to high school together in Pearsall, Texas, and "knew each other forever," the country star says.
"I never really even thought anything about her, but then one day, I asked her out, and we went on a date. We didn't see each other for a long time after that," Strait shares. "Then one day, I thought, 'I'm missing the boat here,' and we started dating again."
The Straits eloped in Mexico on Dec. 4, 1971, and then, a few weeks later, held a church wedding in their hometown. Strait joined the United States Army shortly thereafter, with Norma following him to his post in Hawaii. It was there that he began singing with a military-sponsored country music group, though it would take another decade before his first official country single arrived.
"Norma and I are so blessed that we found each other ... and were able to do all of this together, experience this life together, to support each other through everything, good times and bad," Strait tells People. "We do almost everything together ... We love each other and we still like each other. A lot!"
George and Norma Strait have two children together: daughter Jenifer, born in 1972, and son George Jr., nicknamed "Bubba," born in 1981. Sadly, Jenifer died in a car accident at the age of 13, on June 25, 1986.
Over 50 years into their marriage, the Straits are now grandparents to Bubba and wife Tamara's two children: George Harvey Strait III, born in 2012, and Jillian Louise Strait, born in 2016. With "King George" retired from touring (though he's still making new music, often writing with his son, and playing occasional shows), he and his queen have plenty of time to spoil their beloved prince and princess.
