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.

  1. Ooh, please pick me! I am the hugest fan of both! My fave Gavin song is “Nice to Meet You Anyway” from his first album. My fave Colbie song is “Capri” from her first album. It is a sweet song about a mom and her yet-to-be-born little girl. My husband and I loved it so much that we named our baby girl Grace Capri!

  2. I LOVE Bubbly!! My daughter and I sing it all the time on her Wii game called….Sing It;)

  3. Love Gavin’s “I’m in love with a Girl” and Colbie’s “I do”.
    Great concert pair-up! This will be a great one!!

  4. I love Bubbly….makes me think about when my youngest daughter was a baby! It’s a fun song, and makes the heart feel happy!

  5. But I never told you
    What I should have said
    No I never told you
    I just held it in
    And now I miss everything
    About you
    I can’t believe I still want
    After all the things we’ve
    Been through
    I miss everything about you
    Without you
    – from “I never told you”. My favorite Colbie song

  6. I cant pick my favorite Colbie song because I love them all. Shes so talented and I feel in love with her music from the very first album. To see her live is a dream!!! If I had to narrow it down Id say capri. I was pregnant with my daughter at the time

  7. I would LOVE to win this! I haven’t been to a concert since high school! My favorite songs by them are Colbie-bubbly and Gavin’s-not over you!!!!!!!! IN LOVE!! This would be so fantastic for me and my husband!!!

  8. Capri! So very sweet! Such a beautiful song. Simple but profound. The bond between a mom and her daughter is so special, even from the beginning… in the womb!

  9. My favorite song is “bubbly.” My son is adopted and this was my ringtone when he was born and it brings back great memories of his birth. “You make me smile, just for a while”

  10. BUBBLY!! Love that song….”Starts at my toes and I crinkle my nose….”

  11. My favorite song by Colbie Caillat is Falling For You… fave line in the song… “I’ve been waiting all my life and now I found ya’…” makes me think of my fabulous hubby 🙂 And I do like me some Gavin DeGraw!! What a great date night!

  12. I love the song Bubbly. It has a very neat beat that makes you want to dance. She is a great singer and I like her beats. It would be fun to go see her live. What a neat contest.

  13. My favortie Colbie song isn’t as well known as the rest. Its called “Capri”. All about a woman pregnant with a baby girl and how beautiful she is. Means more now that I’m pregnant with a baby girl myself. Hoping she sings it that night!

  14. Pick me:)
    I love Colbies Fallin for You! Thanks for the chance at the tickets!!

  16. My favorite Colbie song is “Capri”! It’s such a precious song for expecting moms!

  17. Think Good Thoughts – Colbie Caillat
    ….Think Good Thoughts. Imagine what the world would be if we would just think good thoughts. I’m not saying it’s easy; especially when I’m moody. I might be cursing like a sailor ’til I remind myself I’m better because words can be like weapons…when you use them you regret them. And when I start feeling blue, I remember to tell myself to think Good Thoughts!

  18. Okay, I am so lame. I have never heard of either one of them. I am so out of the loop. But I would love to win and get more hip with the current music.

  19. My favorite Gavin DeGraw song is I. Don’t Wanna Be because even though I am a single mom of two,a full time nurse and have multiple sclerosis, I love who I am and wouldn’t change my life for anything!

  20. I have ALWAYS loved Gavin DeGraw, and one of the simplest, yet best lines of any song is:

    “I don’t wanna be anything other than what i’ve been trying to be lately.”

    I think everyone can relate to having this feeling at times- I know I can. He goes on to say, “I’m tired of looking around rooms wondering what I gotta do or who I’m supposed to be. I don’t wanna be anything other than me.”

  21. I have been a huge Colbie Caillat fan since she first came out. My absolute favorite is “Magic”…it brings to life the connection I feel with my husband. 🙂

  22. Would Love to take little Beda to see them…Falling for you…Mother daughter time…what a better way to spend it

  23. I LOVE THE SONG “realize” by colbie, its my very favorite and such a beautiful song!! i want to hear it now 🙂 My favorite song by Gavin, is ” im in love with a girl” such a cute song!!

  24. “I’m in love with a girl” and “Falling for you” are my favorites by each. I’m a big Colbie and Gavin fan! Have all their songs! Thanks!

  25. “I Don’t Wanna Be” by Gavin. It was the theme to “One Tree Hill”, and Gavin appeared on the show several times singing. I also like “Chariot” and his new album “Sweeter” has some great tracks!

  26. “Staring at a maple leaf Leaning on the mother tree I said to myself we all lost touch”

    My daughter is a huge fan of both. She could probably tell you every lyric to every song.

  27. My favorite song is I Do by Colbie. We played it at our wedding and everytime I hear it I think of that wonderful day!!

  28. My favorite Colbie song is Fallin for You–the title speaks for itself!
