    Here in the United States of America we just had another election and this time it was to elect the Chief Executive, also known as The President of the United Sates of America.  During this election President Obama was re-elected to be the chief of the free world again, but to get there he had some help from some of the top artists in the music industry.

                POSTED 1/21/2011Look Back 0n 2010 - Part 2

                Written by Mike Arnold

                While the concert-touring season has slowed down for the winter, I thought it would be nice to show our listening audiences what we went through in 2010.  I created multiple videos of our experiences with a month by month journey of our adventures.

                Here’s Part 2 of our 2010 Concert Blast Posts.  This video takes you through the month of May as we covered the Memphis in May Beale Street Music Festival and more and then carries you through the first portion of the  month of June 2010.

                  Hank Williams Jr Rowdy Friends Tour Review – Nashville, TN – 4/23/2010 (PODCAST 167)

                    PODCAST AUDIO LINK AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS POST

                    It was a Rowdy Friday night in Nashville, TN at the Bridgestone Arena.  Hank Williams Jr. led the charge as Jamey Johnson, Eric Church, and The Grascals followed.  The crowd at the arena was full of energy and ready for fun.

                    The Grascals

                    The Grascals performed a free concert outside on the plaza for the attendees before the doors opened.  The Grascals were well received on the outside as well as on the inside of the arena as they opened the show.  After their set they took time to have a short conversation with Mike Arnold and Brian Hasbrook who were there covering the show.   Mike and Brian missed Eric Church’s performance due to the backstage visit, but they had such a good time it was worth it.

                    Jamey Johnson

                    Jamey Johnson had the crowd on their feet throughout the entire set and when Hank Jr took the stage, the crowd turned it up another notch as Bocephus rallied his troops throughout the evening with his hits, sing-alongs and many musical surprises.

                    Special Thanks to Martha Moore from So Much Moore Media for setting up the interview with The Grascals and for arranging the concert review.

                         Mike Arnold and Brian Hasbrook had a great time at the concert, but also had an excellent time with an interview with The Grascals after their show. 

                        Due to the backstage interview, Brian and Mike missed Eric Church’s set.  Special Thanks to Martha Moore of So Much Moore Media for setting everything up for us.
