The expectations were high, and they were more than met with a great night of country music Saturday.

Not just one, or two but three acts that kept the country music flowing.

First was Thompson Square. They performed their hits we already know and the crowd sang the words with them. Thompson Square is here to stay.

Next, classic country from the 1980’s and 1990’s with March Chesnutt. As he sang his classics, you remember when he was one of the newer country stars and how his songs still sound good today. “I’m glad you all still like honey tonk songs” was his memorable phrase.

When Jason Aldean took to the stage, everyone was ready for his original style of country music. From the heavy guitar of “Hicktown” to the “country rap” of “Dirt Road Anthem, we heard it all.

Jason Aldean was not the only one who shined during the concert. His drummer had an amazing solo and his lead guitar player had a few fantastic guitar solos. The performance Bon Jovi’s “Dead or Alive” was great too. To everyone who asks “What ever happened to the guitars of rock and roll?” Apparently, the guitar went country.
