Country Music is growing in Chicago especially with a massive event like Windy City Smokeout that combines incredible award-winning BBQ with some of the biggest names in Country Music. When I use to live in Chicago Windy City Smokeout was a must-attend event, and it is only grown in the past couple of years even with the COVID-19 reschedulings and cancellations. To have a chance to see the icon Willie Nelson in concert is definitely worth the train ride up to the Windy City.
