Win Tickets to See Tim McGraw, Taylor Swift, Lady Antebellum, JasonAldean, Luke Bryan and more 4/8 in Vegas

This concert sounds incredible (thanks to NAB Show for providing tickets!) and I've decided to make the process of entering a bit easier because I don't want anyone to miss out. So, here's how this works: 

We have 20 questions plus 1 bonus question for you to answer. The answers are hidden throughout this blog. All you have to do is use the search box on the side to find the answers, the correct posts will contain a bright yellow music note to tell you you're on the right track (and the note will be relatively close to the answer). But now, rather than make you find the questions yourself, we're giving them all to you right here because I don't want anyone missing out on the chance to attend this amazing show. You still have to be 18, you still need your own way to get to Vegas because the prize is just a pair of tickets, and you still have to follow the rules. But, now you just need to tell us the answers.  You don't necessarily need to answer them all, just answer the most questions correct and you'll win and we'll all be jealous!
