Pete Hanson

I'm just a regular Minnesota guy that grew up on the north-side of the Cities (Fridley), spent some quality time at the U of M, chill on the weekends at the family cabin near Duluth, bleed Vikings purple, and miss the North Stars. I have a short attention span; and enjoy Pink Floyd, Johnny Cash, Zac Brown, 80s hair bands, coffee, beer, scotch, and long sunset walks on the beach. (One of those isn't true.) I'm a two-time cancer survivor now (Colorectal 2002, Kidney 2014), and know that life is damn short -- so by all means we should be playing as hard and as often as we can. I think that's it. (Did I mention that I have a short attention span?) Hit me up below on Facebook & Twitter.

State Fair Lineup Proves I’m 100% Minnesotan

I was looking at the State Fair grandstand lineup this weekend, realizing that I (much like Donnie & Marie) am a little bit country & a little bit rock & roll. Def Leppard? (Love), Carrie Underwood? (Yes), Alan Jackson? (Cool), Lynyrd Skynyrd? (Yup), Merle Haggard? (Totally?) -- but what's the one performance I have to see?
