As if you didn’t need another reason to enjoy Thursday night football under the lights with your friends this summer – I am prepared to give you one more reason…or nine! For nine weeks this summer CFL stadiums across the country will play host to a concert at halftime – you can check out the full list right here.
When the announcement was made I had the chance to hang with the first group to hit the stage this summer, the brother/sister country rock duo The Reklaws. You won’t even have to wait until halftime to hear one of the top country songs of the summer because it is also the theme song for Thursday Night Football on TSN. I have been playing it non-stop…seriously.
The Reklaws were in Toronto doing press talking ALL about football, their song Long Live The Night and what it’s been like to go from small town kids to stars. The BTS notes – Stu and Jenna could not be nicer people, we clicked right away and I so enjoyed getting to spend some time with them. They are genuinely fired up about the CFL season and spoke at length about their excitement for Thursday night. You can catch them on our show CFL Game Time Thursday live on Facebook at 7:30pm ET and of course watch them on TSN Thursday at halftime!
We can all agree Thursday is really just Friday junior so get your tickets and come party with us this summer and watch some football! We can’t wait to see you this Thursday in Winnipeg!
