The Band Wagon Tour Concert with Miranda Lambert, Little Big Town, Turnpike Troubadours and Tenille Townes at the MidFlorida Credit Union Amphitheatre.
The Concert was a BLAST! This was the first time we actually got seats rather than the grassy knoll. The seats were great, seriously roomy with lots of leg room. The Entertainment line up was fantastic. I am a Huge, LBT and Miranda fan! We now have a couple new artists to watch also.
Ok so let me expound on the seats LOL, did I mention they were roomy? Again this was the first time we ponied up for seat tickets, sooo glad we did! The seats for so roomy that I could turn a bit in my seat and have a conversation with my husband without getting a crick in my neck. He is a big fella so leg room is a big deal also. He was able to turn slightly in his seat when the ladies next to us made their 45th trip to potty and get more drinks, without really having to get up. I don’t know that we will ever buy grassy knoll tickets again, it was a great experience!
While tail gating I went to visit the radio station tents and one of them had a drawing for backstage passes, of course I entered, you had to be present to win. So at the designated time we went back (yes, I entered the hubs so he had to go with) and before they had the drawing we had a visit by Ms. Tenille Townes. Wow, what a voice! her voice reminds me of Janis Joplin, really soulful, definitely one to watch. Unfortunately, we missed her opening act inside as I was trying to buy merchandise! Seriously the Amp needs more than 1 merch stand.
We did get to experience the Turnpike Troubadours, excellently old school, Steel guitar and all! If you like “old” or “traditional” country music, try checking these folks out! We enjoyed them immensely.
I can’t say enough about both Little Big Town and Miranda Lambert, HUGE fan here! As a whole they each started out as a jam session. It was like just hanging out with a few hundred (or more) of your closest friends listening to your favorite music while having a few libations. Then at the end of Miranda solitary set, LBT joins in and Holy Moly they totally rocked the House!!! They did a few covers like “Say my Name by Destiny’s child”, that totally stunned me, just fantastic! Their finale was “Lean on me”! The Audience participation was off the chain! There were more than a few times the crowd (myself included) sang the whole song not just the chorus.
We love music and are really looking forward to the next one.
