About Austin KruegerAustin works as a cost analyst for TDS Telecom in the Government and Regulatory Affairs team. He has a marketing degree from UW-Whitewater and has worked in various departments including marketing, sales and network services since joining TDS in 2004. He is a huge sports fan – if he’s not at work, odds are you can find him at Miller Park, Lambeau Field, Camp Randall or the Kohl Center watching the game. In his spare time, he’s chairman of a local non-profit, avid music fan, rec sports MVP and an early adopter when it comes to most new technologies.
While these guys are absolute legends in the Minneapolis area, they made their mark on music history and are well worth a listen. Known for sold-out shows and monstrous performances, they have a legacy on par with almost anyone in the biz.
From a legacy perspective, looking back on it now, Insomniac was almost the album that cemented Green Day's place in history. Many fans were disappointed it wasn’t the 40-minute slayer that Dookie was, but after you put it down for a bit, you went back to it and respected it more and more. Here we sit 25 years later, and their most played song on Spotify came from this record is “Brain Stew”.
After early success when she was younger, Lainey Wilson fell off the musical map—until her real debut album. Now, she's featured all over the industry as the next big thing. Her voice is smooth, the lyrics are great, and this album is well worth a listen. She's going places so get in on the ground floor.
From an outsider perspective, Fozzy isn’t the household name of the other artists noted above, and don’t have a Metallica-type following. But to have a lead singer who is a WWE star? Well, Jericho’s vocal is surprisingly solid and some of the riffs are worthy of any popular metal band. Take a listen on the hard rock side of music life.
These guys were lyricists, pure and simple. Sure, they had great beats and drops too, but the rhymes were the focus. And groups like Run-D.M.C. often had a message behind their raps. They moved the genre away entirely from the funk and more disco-oriented feel it had before, and it changed the game forever.
There are ways to get famous as a musician that exist today that simply didn’t even as recently as ten years ago. Poppy found her way via YouTube and social media festivals and is now a make-up tutorial host, actress and part-time WWE guest star in addition to the music and the videos. If you love pop and music, her combo on this album might just be for you.
Some call listening to George Thorogood a guilty pleasure, but what's there to feel bad about? George and The Destroyers know how to jam and put on fantastic live shows—and this, their second album is worth a listen.
Isn’t it always fun to rediscover an album from time to time? One that maybe you wore out 20 years ago and then forgot about for a solid decade? Although today’s band has been featured here on CTT before, their second album hasn’t—and it’s a good one worth revisiting!
One of the most iconic songs around comes from today's artist—who is also known for her philanthropic work ... in addition to founding a little small concert you may have heard of called Lilith Fair. Her voice is amazing and this album is well worth an hour of your time to listen.
Jon’s sound on this album was described a Garth Brooks and Randy Travis hybrid—probably the biggest compliment you can give a newer artist in the genre. Rolling Stone had it in the top ten of their top county albums of 2016, and Jon won New Artist of the Year at the 2017 CMAs. Kick the dirt off your boots and give it a try!
