The Dorchester Times turns 10 years old today.
A decade ago, the Dorchester Times made its debut. Now, 120 months later, the Dorchester blog has gathered more than 1.7 million page views.
To celebrate, we are giving away a pair of tickets for the Saturday, June 3 Jerrod Neiman concert in downtown Dorchester.
This is a $50 value.
To enter, simply e-mail us at Dorchester.Times@gmail.com and write "TICKETS" in the subject line. Be sure to send us your mailing address in the body of the e-mail so we know where to send the tickets.
The tenth e-mail we receive will be the winner.
If you're not lucky enough to win tickets from the Times, you can still purchase them at City Slickers in Dorchester. There are a limited number of tickets available for this event, according to organizers, so get yours soon. More information can be obtained by calling 402-946-2171.
City Slickers restaurant recently announced it's hosting the first annual "City Lights, Country Nights" street party on Dorchester's main street. This has led some to call Dorchester "Little Nashville" and the music hub of southeast Nebraska.
For those who don't know, Niemann is a country music singer and songwriter. He has released one single and three albums: Judge Jerrod and the Hung Jury (2010), Free the Music (2012), and High Noon (2014).
These albums have produced a combined six Top 40 entries on the Hot Country Songs and Country Airplay charts, including the number-one singles "Lover, Lover" (a cover of Sonia Dada's "You Don't Treat Me No Good") and "Drink to That All Night." He has also co-written three singles for Garth Brooks.
