It looks like a great summer of live music here in southeast Minnesota (okay, and western Wisconsin) as Chase Bryant is set to play Riverfest in La Crosse in July.

According to a release from Riverfest, Bryant is set to headline the July 3rd date during La Crosse's big summer celebration.

And, while it's not QUITE as affordable as Rochester's Down By The Riverside Concert Series, tickets are still pretty affordable. In fact, the release says that admission to the show will be "the cost of an admission button. Buttons will be going on sale in late May and will be $7.00 in advance, $10 at the gate," the release said.

Riverfest is set to run from June 30th through July 4th, 2017 in downtown La Crosse, which is, of course, only an hour's drive from Rochester, heading east on I-90.

(By the way, I just drove through La Crosse a few weekends ago and the new bridge over the Mississippi River at Dresbach is finally done -- and it's pretty slick!)

And here's Bryant's big hit from 2016 -- and one of my favorite songs of last summer-- Little Bit of You.
