Doubling country fans’ pleasure and doubling their fun was what led to next summer’s double bill, and now Kenny Chesney and Jason Aldean are adding a second show. The two country music superstars previously announced they would be performing a show at Target Field next summer.
The two groups hoping to bring a Major League Soccer franchise to Minnesota have made their pitches to league officials.

In their final home game of the 2014 season, the Minnesota Twins treated their fans to something rather uncommon: a victory. The team now has four games left in Detroit before the season ends. It’s the fourth straight season that the Twins have lost at least 90 games.
The Minnesota Twins will open their season on the road with a three-game stand against the Detroit Tigers followed by three games against the Chicago White Sox. The games against the Tigers will be played on April 6, 8 and 9, and the White Sox series is scheduled for April 10-12.
At the end of their penultimate home stand, the Minnesota Twins left the friendly confines of Target Field with a record of 61-82. With only 19 games remaining in the season, it seems fairly well assured that the Twins will end their fourth straight season with 90+ losses. Speculation and debate over potential organizational change will run rampant. And Twins fans will spend another off-season wondering when their favorite team will manage to climb their way out of baseball’s cellar.
Mike Trout hit his 32nd homer, C.J. Wilson recovered from a slow start and the Los Angeles Angels completed a season sweep of Minnesota by beating the Twins 14-4 on Sunday.
