The Country Concert of the Year

Who went to the biggest concert ever performed at Blossom Music Center. Why it's Fishing Guy with the Mrs. along with Brian and his wife Angie. Brian works with me in PA. There was a record crowd for the concert, Blossom was sold out at 23,500 people.
The opening act is one of the up and coming acts in country music. Taylor Swift a 18 year old phenom that has sold so many copies of her first album it has been #1 several times as people get to know her. I bought the CD on its release week.
She sang her favorite songs from the first CD.
She was even overwhelmed by all the cheering. This is awe on her face for the crowds reaction.
The sun went down and the crowd lit up.
The stage was then transformed to the Rascal Flatts show.
Gary LeVox was in good voice as he took the lead on most songs.
The stage was alight with the setup for the show.
They used the big screens to there best as the darkness enveloped the stage.
It was a mixture of old and new songs for the group.
There were too many people in the venue. There was a crush just trying to get out when we left a little early.

Just got back from another weekend trip in an island and I am delighted to see a concert in your blog. I am really lost for words on how to properly express the awe I feel looking at your pictures fishing guy. They are trully great and personal. And the fact that you enjoy doing it really showed on your captures.
Thanks for sharing your priced treasures.
