Since we're giving away single-day tickets this week to the Taste of Country Music Festival, I thought it might be kind of fun to go back in time with the 3 headliners.

Tim McGraw, Keith Urban and Toby Keith. How fantastic would it be to see one or all of those artists in person? You can purchase single-day tickets as well as entire 3-day festival tickets. There are also so many others scheduled to perform as well. Eli Young Band, Billy Currington, Sara Evans - check out the entire lineup. Scroll down for some waaay back videos from Tim, Keith and Toby!
