Note from the mamas: Paulette Pixley and Gretchen Shriver were the lucky mamas who won this giveaway. Congratulations, ladies!
Two giveaways are on the homepage today (scroll down to see the second one) so it’s a big day, mamas! And this is a BIG concert for Northwest Arkansas — Colbie Caillat and Gavin DeGraw live at the Arkansas Music Pavilion on June 17th at 7:30 p.m.! We’ll pick TWO names out of the online hat and each of those winning mamas will get TWO tickets each plus a dinner gift card to the always-delicious Mojito’s Mexican Grill in Fayetteville.
As you may know, Walton Arts Center owns the Arkansas Music Pavilion (AMP) and they are bringing some amazing musicians to Northwest Arkansas this spring and summer. We’re big fans of both Colbie Caillat and Gavin DeGraw and have been known to crank up the volume in the old minivan when one of their songs comes on the radio. These two singer-songwriters have teamed up for a summer tour which also features special guest Andy Grammer as the opening act. (He’s awesome, too! Check him out on YouTube by clicking here.)
Some of Colbie Caillat’s biggest hits include: (Click each title to hear the song.)
Colbie Caillat burst onto the scene in 2007 with her first album, “Coco” which debuted at No. 5 and raced past the multi-platinum barrier. Her first single, “Bubbly,” was such a huge hit that it has become one of the best-selling digital tracks of all time. Billboard magazine called Colbie the “Breakthrough Artist of the Year.” Her next album, appropriately titled Breakthrough, earned two Grammy nominations. That same year, she won two Grammys for her collaborations with Jason Mraz (the song “Lucky”) and with Taylor Swift (the song “Breathe”). Her newest album it titled “All of You”.
Here’s one of our favorites from Colbie Caillat. It’s such a happy song. Hit the play arrow and prepare to sing and dance.
Gavin DeGraw hit it big in 2003 with his first album called Chariot, which sold more than a million copies and went platinum. His self-titled second album debuted at No. 2 on the digital sales chart and No. 7 on Billboard‘s Top 200 chart. His newest album, titled Sweeter, experiments with new sounds and features collaborations with some of the music industry’s most talented producers.
