    As we approached the last night of the CMA Music Festival 2013, we were sadden to see it all come to a close, but we were even more saddened to experience the sets that were shortened due to the threat of the bad weather which was approaching downtown Nashville, TN. This Sunday night Concert Blast staff consisted of Mike Arnold, Tom Thompson. And our guest Will Perry, as he substituted for the ill Brian Hasbrook.  Listen to this podcast and/or read Mike Arnold’s blog on the coverage of this fun, but disappointed evening as we covered (in order) Brad Paisley, The Band Perry, Jake Owen, and Carrie Underwood.

                  Charlie Daniels Band Concert Review – Nashville, TN – Wildhorse Saloon – 8/27/09 (BLOG)

                    Concert Review Written By Tom Thompson

                    Charlie Daniel’s and the Charlie Daniel’s Band brought their southern rock show to the Wildhorse Saloon on August 27th, 2009.

                    I will have to say that Charlie and the band still know how to bring southern rock back to Nashville. The talent of Charlie and his band sounded better than ever. One thing I noticed with this show is Charlie plays a lot more electric and acoustic guitar than I have seen him do in the past. I was very pleased with how well he can still play, especially the numerous guitar leads. Charlie’s fiddle playing is still amazing, we just didn’t see him play it very often.
