Now Its Party Time

Thursday-Sunday they had concerts that had 4 acts each night. The first night we did not get out of the stadium till 2:30 AM! The first two nights Melissa Peterman of Singing Bee and Reba was the hostess and the last two nights Evan Farmer of CMT was the host. Each night there was a special guest that sang the national anthem and also a fly over. At midnight every night they shot fireworks over the stadium. We covered Watty's ears for those. That is one thing he does not like....fireworks! Thankfully we met a new friend who had been to the festival the past year and warned us about the fireworks.

Watty during the concerts. He was either watching or sleeping. We put glow bracelets on him so people see him and wont step on him. It works perfect!

Beach balls were thrown in to the audience every night at a certain point. They came from the section behind us so of course we got hit a few times. Watty wasn't to keen on the idea of getting bopped on the head by a beach ball. After night 1 we watched out for the balls to make sure Watty didn't panic.

Brad Paisley was the closer of the festival. He did an awesome job. His last song of the night was his song called Alcohol. Half way through the song Darius Rucker, Justin Moore, and Chuck Wicks come out and finish the song with him. It was fun seeing them all goof off on stage.
