Pickin' and a Grinnin'

I just had the pleasure of going to my first country show today. Actually, as an employee of Cumulus Broadcasting, of which WEAS, the radio station I work for is an affiliate, and it's sister station WJCL is putting it on, I had no choice. I was told it was manditory for all employees to be there or be fired. Still, it was a pretty good time while I manned the soda stand withn other workers. Martina McBride and Lonestar were scheduled to play later, but I was there long enough to hear Marty Chestnut and David Ball. I think we can tell by now that I'm not a fan of the music much. but I thought that Chestnut did a great job and I caught myself tapping my feet from time to time. David Ball however didn't impress me one bit, doing an acoustic set and sounding a bit off key. I would have loved to have seen Lonestar, since their biggest hit "Amazed" is actually a favorite of mine, since it crossed over to top 40, but I had to leave since I've got things to do tonight. The funny thing is about the whole thing, later this summer, WEAS will host an outdoor concert called Jamfest, which looks to be big. I've heard rumors about who'll be at this show. I wonder if the same folks who were there at the country show will show up for Hip-Hop?
