We all remember Nelly's breakthrough debut album 'Country Grammar' and his follow-up 'Nellyville' from the early 2000s which came with several hits at the time. Nelly is from my hometown of St. Louis, MO, and if you went through there during the time of his pinnacle of stardom, you couldn't turn on a pop or hip-hop station in the region without hearing Nelly and you absolutely loved it! For me, my personal favorite track was 'E.I.' Every bar or club there still plays lots of Nelly on their playlist, and it's impossible to leave any club there without hearing 'Hot In Herre.'

That being said, your EXCLUSIVE chance to win Nelly tickets for his show at the Bismarck Event Center is for our app users so be sure you download the app and turn on those exclusive notifications.
