Before we actually bring the 27 Good Living Tour acts to Greater Nebraska, our team of journalists spent a day in each of the nine concert-hosting cities.
In Valentine, Scottsbluff, Ogallala, Imperial, North Platte, Kearney, Grand Island, West Point and Nebraska City, we found local music stories and interviewed young professionals about why they choose to stay, and invest in, Greater Nebraska communities. The stories and video pieces will be published in conjunction with the Good Living Tour later this month. Check out a sampling of photos below that chart our travels across the state.
We met the kind of ambitious people, visited the community hubs, and saw so many of beautiful vistas, that make Nebraska great.
