I have been attending the past three summers, although last year I could only go for one day because I was stuck on the island. This year was probably the best one so far, if only because all of the artists put on great shows and even if I didn't know every song I could still enjoy it.
Obviously my favorite performer, by far, was Luke Bryan because he always puts on a great show. Lee Brice performed right before Luke Bryan, and I am of the opinion that they should be dubbed "2 LBs", as in "Two Pounds" whenever they perform together. They could form a hip-hip group and that can be their name. I am a genius, obviously.
Florida-Georgia Line were a good time as well. It legitimately felt like a party when they were on stage. I was a bit disappointed with Miranda Lambert's performance, because she wasn't rocking out as much as I expected her to. She was very chill with her guitar.
There were two standout performances that kind of surprised me: Chase Rice and Thomas Rhett. Now, I've seen Thomas Rhett before but he didn't have a ton to work with back then. Those two also have connections to Ohio which I am all for - go Buckeyes! Chase Rice really knows how to perform and feeds off the crowd. They both had great energy. I also really enjoyed Dustin Lynch and Cole Swindell.
Country Concert is always a good time, not because of the performers, but because of the people. People-watching and they people you go with. I can't wait to see what happens next year!
