One word sums it up– AMAZING! The two night music series of concerts were well attended and highly applauded by Southern Illinois. Friday night (despite inclement weather and torrential downpours of rain and high winds) was a highly dedicated and exuberant audience.. many in rain ponchos–some– just said “It’s only water!” and braved the elements and enjoyed the party! Saturday night was dryer and was perhaps the largest outdoor concert ever held in Southern Illinois…. Eric Church was amazing and energetic and…. VERY well received by the crowd.
Both acts had support acts on stage prior to them among those were American Lion, Anders Osborn, Thomas Tillman, Chris Hennessee, Matt Poss Band, and more…. all were fantastic and put on a great show. Black Diamond Harley Davidson did the hosting and it was an all around great event. Food, drinks, and great music all led to a wonderful Father’s Day weekend for thousands of attendees.
