Memorial Day weekend is fast approaching and many consider it to be the first real holiday of the summer. It’s a three day weekend, the kids are out of school and it’s finally warm enough outside to slap on the swimsuit or two-piece. There are plenty of things you can spend your three day weekend doing in Lubbock over the Memorial Day weekend, but five big things come to mind instantly. Here are our top five things to do in Lubbock this Memorial Day weekend.
The 17-year-old from Garner, NC, beat out 16-year-old Lauren Alaina to become the youngest 'American Idol' winner ever. He's also the fourth-consecutive male to win the reality-competition series, following David Cook, Kris Allen and Lee DeWyze. (The last female to win 'American Idol' was Jordin Sparks, in 2007.)
Brad Paisley's sold more than 10 million records, and he's had 17 number one hits on the country charts. With that kind of popularity, it's natural his fanbase falls all across the spectrum.
For a cross-section of the most dedicated of his sprawling fanbase - plus some real unvarnished talent - check out our list of amateur Paisley covers. We take you from one side of the spectrum to the other - from an adorable father-daughter take on "Whiskey Lullaby," featuring a guest turn by one of the starkest mullets on YouTube, to a kid cowboy's version of "Mud on the Tires." And don't forget to register for a chance to see and meet Brad Paisley in West Palm Beach, Fla. on Sept. 10.

Taste of Country got an exclusive interview with Brad Paisley this week, in which, among other things, the country superstar talks about how Carrie Underwood has become his go-to duet partner.
"She’s probably pretty much my first choice to sing with when it comes to a duet with a woman like that. I mean, we just sort of share the same values and get along that well," Paisley tells Taste of Country. "I just don’t think there’s a better singer than her, so it’s sort of selfish to be able to sing with her and perform."
We're happy to announce that John Bruce Evans is the official winner of last month's Kenny Chesney contest! Evans and a guest will fly from Texas to Green Bay, where they'll see Chesney play at Lambeau Field on June 11, and get the chance to meet the superstar.
We put on the contest last month with the help of our friends at Taste of Country. Read more about Evans — plus your chance to win a trip to see Brad Paisley in West Palm Beach, Fla. — after the jump.
