Slip those Tony Lamas onto your feet and slide the cuffs of your Wranglers over the tops. Grab you shiniest belt buckle, your best Sunday shirt and that beautiful cowgirl next to you. Ironstone Amphitheater went country with Chris Young, Jon Pardi and Tyler Rich this past Sunday Night.
Tyler Rich from Yuba City, Ca. opened the show with his hard charging style of country. Rich enjoyed playing to the crowd feeding off of his Northern Cali roots. Sharing his inspiration coming from seeing George Strait at an early age. Very engaging young man with a great stage presence.
Fresh off of finding out the night before that their new single Head Over Boots reached #1 on the country charts. Jon Pardi cut his chops in the west coast honky tonk scene. A throwback to the country music of the 90’s with a Nashville blue-collar sound that couldn’t care less about what is hip or popular now. Pardi is a vocal performer with old school flair sharing the new album California Sunrise throughout his set. A breath of fresh air in a crowded Nashville scene.
Chris Young is best known for his muscular baritone and for winning the televised Nashville Star singing competition in 2006. Influenced by Randy Travis, George Strait, Clint Black and Keith Whitley. Born and raised in Murfreesboro, Tennessee, Chris Young was interested in music from a young age. He sang in the choir in his teens, but didn't get serious about music as a career until later. Sober Saturday Night and I’m coming Over got the crowd up and dancing in the isles.
Great crowd on a very warm evening on Six Mile Road. I have seen many concerts over my years in many different venues. Ironstone Amphitheater is by far my favorite venue to see a great show. Please keep them coming and we will keep on attending.
Next up Aug. 21 is Peter Frampton and Lynyrd Skynyrd….get your tickets and we’ll see y’all there.
