    It was Valentine’s Day weekend as Rick Springfield made another appearance to Nashville, TN to perform two nights at the Wildhorse Saloon.  Concert Blast photographer Brian Hasbrook was on hand to take photos again this year on Saturday, February 13th.  As a special request from Rick’s former bandmate, Jack White (not from the White Stripes) who happened to be in town, Brian also took photos of Jack singing ”Mustang Sally” on Rick’s encore.

                      ALAN JACKSON Meet and Greet Photos – Cracker Barrel Restaurant – Mt. Juliet, TN – 11/02/09 (PHOTOS)

                      Be Sociable, Share!

                        On November 2nd, 2009, Cracker Barrel Old Country Store (and restaurant) announced a new line of products, The Alan Jackson Collection, with the country music superstar in person at the Mt. Juliet location.  Concert Blast receives all types of requests to cover events for media exposure.  Most are concerts or CD review coverage.  This is the first time we’ve covered an event at a restaurant.  Normally we wouldn’t cover something like this, but this is for country music superstar Alan Jackson.  Cracker Barrel Old Country Store (and restaurant) introduced a new merchandising progam, The Alan Jackson Collection, which features menswear and womenswear, food items, collectibles, an Alan Jackson Signiture Rocker, and other exclusive items including a CD titled,  ”Songs of Love and Heartache.”

                        Brian Hasbrook was on hand to cover the event and to take the photos of Alan Jackson’s Collectibles and the Meet and Greet with the 500 plus fans who braved the early cold morning and stood in line for hours to meet Alan Jackson in person at the Cracker Barrel in Mt. Juliet, TN.

                              KISS Concert Review – Alive 35 Tour – Nashville, TN – 10/28/2009 (BLOG)

                                KISS, the hardest working band in the world, hit the stage Wednesday, October 28th, 2009, at the Sommet Center, (the big arena) in Nashville, TN with opening act, Buckcherry, as they continued on their KISS Alive 35 tour across the world.  I first saw KISS as they toured for their first album and have seen them in concert about twelve times.

                                Buckcherry slowly warmed the crowd as most patrons waited to arrive after their set.  Usually their set is full of profanity, but they kept it fairly tame until their last song of the night.
