99.5 QYK’s sister station Q105 made the announcement today that Bob Seger is coming to Tampa in 2019. This news made my year. I flew to Connecticut last year thinking it might be one of my last chances to see Bob live. I grew up on Seger music. My mother and aunt listened to his live album “Nine Tonight” over and over. I didn’t love his music then, but grew into a huge fan as an adult. Bob is in his 70s and has had health issues over the past few years that have caused concert postponements, but hopefully this is a sign he’s feeling good. I’ll be honest. You won’t hear the higher notes he hit back in his day. But if I can go that hard when I’m in my 70s, it’ll be a miracle.

I’m not the only Seger fan in country music. Take a listen to some of these covers from your favorite QYK artists.

Know of another good one?
Let me know @WQYKGeno and I’ll add it.
