The less you care, the better it is when it comes to karaoke.  And there are at least 5 spots around East Texas this week that will let you show off your mad impersonation skills.

Karaoke looks so easy until you're the one up there on stage and the spotlight is on, right?  I mean, all of our favorite songs sound great when we belt them out at the top of our lungs in the shower, or as stress relievers in the car, but once we get on stage and hear ourselves in the monitors it can be another story entirely.  Steven Tyler makes singing look easy, so maybe we need leather pants and a scarf on the mic to get closer to being legit.

The karaoke singers that have the most success are always those that seem to care the least.  If you can let go and let 'er rip, you'll be an instant karaoke hit and the crowd will love you, especially if everyone is about three drinks in.

Karaoke happens almost every night somewhere in East Texas because we are fun people, and here are a few spots that we can hit this week.
