CMA Music Fest 2011 Stadium Concerts Coverage Part 3 of 4 – Nashville, TN – LP Field – 6/11/2011 (Podcast 216)
Posted on 8/4/2011
Our CMA Music Fest 2011 Coverage continued with the third night of the festival, the Saturday Night Stadium Concerts, thrilled 50,000 plus country music fans with major headliners and loads of surprises! On the bill that night was Rascal Flatts, Martina McBride, Trace Adkins, Josh Turner, Little Big Town, and opening the show was Chris Young.
There were also surprise appearances by American Idol winner Scotty McCreery and runner up Lauren Alaina. Other surprises were short acoustic sets by Clint Black (who performed all new songs) and a couple of songs from the married duo, Thompson Square.
The main surprise of the night was before Trace Adkins took the stage there was an announcement… “Ladies and Gentlemen, Big and Rich!” They performed a new song called, “Fake ID”. In the middle of the song John Rich announced Gretchen Wilson as she took the stage running out to sing along with the chorus of the song. Big Kenny really hyped up the crowd with his on stage antics… Excellent Job!
Throughout the last few sets of the night, we kept receiving texts from our listeners, friends, and family members warning us about a storm coming through. We decided to leave after Martina’s set so we missed Rascal Flatts. The next night all the fans we ran into asked us where we went because the most of the entire football was dancing from one side to the other. We missed out on a good set. We left early for no reason, it didn’t rain at the stadium.
Although the concerts were a lot of fun, the fans we met and our listeners that were there made the experience much more enjoyable.
Enjoy the podcast with lots of Live Clips!
