Ah, February, when young netizens hearts turn to thoughts of spring concert tours and leave behind the chill of winter sports. Well, at least until March Madness…

The all concert top 10 this week sees Taylor Swift make it to the top again, sending Lil Wayne down to #3 to make room for… Oh, the esteemed Mr. Beiber has returned. Fresh off his Grammy ‘controversy’ the Beeb shows up in second place again. Actually, he should be happy with the outcome, the Best New Artist Grammy is known to come with a bit of baggage. Taylor Swift also lost that one… to Amy Winehouse. Just consider that bullet dodged and move on.

Lady Gaga never even got the nomination and she’s doing pretty good at #4. Kings of Leon return to the countdown at #5 after a long absence. Much the same can be said of Bon Jovi, who hung in for a while there last year but eventually faded.

A couple new arrivals at 8 and 9. The first is Glee Live! In Concert! I suspect this has something to do with the cast of the television show Glee! being… live… in concert… There may be additional exclamation points as well, I can’t be sure.

The second new entry is Adele, a soul and blues singer from the UK. She did win the Best New Artist Grammy, and only made it to #9 on the countdown. Her first album came out in 2008, which she wrote when she was 19. I have to admit the first thing that makes me think of is a line from Adventures in Babysitting.

10 - Kid Rock

It’s that time of year again, when the only sports on the countdown are the ones where the qualifier “entertainment” is firmly attached. That means concert tours once again dominate the top 5, with Lil Wayne climbing the charts the past few weeks and finally making it to #1. Taylor Swift also climbs but only makes it to the #2 slot.

That brings us to #3, featuring home town favorite Willie Nelson who will be featured on another home town favorite, Austin City Limits Live, this Sunday and Monday. I’m a little surprised that combo didn’t spike to #1.

After Willie is a rich, nougaty center of pop goodness, with Lady Gaga and Katy Perry rounding out the #5, one which also included hip-hop, country pop, and outlaw country. Quite the eclectic mix this week.

It’s rodeo season in Texas, and the San Antonio Rodeo kicks off this weekend with a full slate of concert performers for the next couple of weeks, including Train, Miranda Lambert, and Martina McBride. The Houston and Austin Rodeos will start up in March, both with more big name concert performers. And, presumably, various varieties of cows.

And it’s an affordable family outing, since children 14 years and younger get in free with an adult ticket holder.
