All photos by Dan DeSlover – Concert Capture

While Blake Shelton got most of his headline set in at Country Jam USA on July 24, the lightning that drifted in the distance eventually turned into a tornado watch shortly before 11 p.m. Regardless, Shelton delivered a top notch show for roughly 90 minutes. Kip Moore and Cassadee Pope also offered strong sets on a hot and muggy evening.

Brantley Gilbert - 2014 Let It Ride tour

Brantley Gilbert’s ‘Let It Ride Tour’ made its way to Madison, Wis., on Thursday, October 16.  Gilbert brought along tour-mates Brian Davis, Chase Bryant and Aaron Lewis to the Alliant Energy Center to share the stage.  Nashville DJ Hish, located near the soundboard, spun country, pop, and rock tunes as the fans filtered into the coliseum.

Touring in support of his latest album, “Just as I Am,” Gilbert brought a solid performance to the Alliant for a 90-minute headline set. Always energetic, he worked every inch of the stage while frequently slapping hands with near the front. He hit the crowd early with hits “My Kinda Party,” “Kick It in the Sticks” and “You Don’t Know Her Like I Do.”

Aaron Lewis joined Gilbert on stage for “Dirt Road Anthem” with Lewis contributing during the chorus. Lewis provided a good pairing for the tour, and definitely brought in a handful of fans who know him as frontman for Staind. Gilbert and Lewis hugged to finish the song then Gilbert diffused a skirmish in the crowd, stating “if you can’t get along with the dude standing next to you move, we don’t fight indoors.” Openers Chase Bryant and Brian Davis later returned to the stage to assist on “Small Town Throwdown.”

Gilbert slowed thing down mid-set for a stripped down performance of “Grown Ass Man.” He prefaced the song with, “This next song means a lot to me, it’s about being who you are.”  He followed with a song for the ladies, “She’s My Kind of Crazy.” Gilbert also played hits “Bottoms Up” and “More than Miles” before closing the evening with “Country Must Be Country Wide.”

Country Thunder: The Line-up, The Stages, and The Schedule

Country Thunder 2012 Twin Lakes Easton Corbin, Big Kenny, Jason AldeanCountry Thunder in Twin Lakes, Wisconsin, is just under a week away and marks the midway point of the summer festival season. For the Twin Lakes Country Thunder, there are always a couple things you can count on while attending the 4 day country fest.  First is the heat, which has been lingering in the Midwest for the past 15 days or so. Second is the rain; as it always rains at least one day over the 4 days and creates mud puddles in the campgrounds, but no one seems to mind.  The third is the fantastic music Country Thunder draws to the Midwest.  This year could be the best line-up to date as Big & Rich, Jason Aldean, Blake Shelton, and Toby Keith headline.  Yet, the only thing that may not happen this year is the rain, but maybe Country Thunder will be what draws the much needed rain to the Midwest.

Just issued By Country Thunder and the Order of the Kenosha County Parks Dept. :

Currently the County of Kenosha is under dangerous fire conditions therefore as of yet:
OPEN FIRES ARE BANNED
No campfires, grilling with charcoal or wood,
Fireworks or careless use of smoking materials at country thunder is strictly prohibited.
UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE

The Stages

Last year was the first year the second stage, the Frat House, was added during the day and included performers such as Steal Magnolia and Jason Jones.  The stage was a saving grace as the previous artists mentioned were scheduled to perform on the main stage, but the rain forced them to play on the Frat Stage under the tent.  This year two new stages have been added, minus the Frat House Stage; the GAC Country Thunder Stage and The Electric Thunder stage – schedules for both stage are below. These stages are host to the up-and-comers in country music and a DJ throughout the night until 2 A.M.

What You Can and Cannot Bring – Direct from Country Thunder’s site

No: Instruments; Knives/Weapons; Chains/Chain Wallets; Outside Food or Beverage (into venue); Camelpacks; Tents in venue; Flags in venue; Refunds or Exchanges; Video Cameras; Audio Recording Devices; Flasks; Professional Cameras; Pets (in concert bowl); Drugs or Drug Paraphernalia; Coolers in venue; Laser Pointers; Excess Baggage; Umbrellas; or Chairs with Canopies.

Country Thunder Twin Lakes Aaron Lewis, Brantley Gilbert, Hunter HayesThe Artists

While there is a slew of artists performing this year, we’ve narrowed down who we look forward to seeing this year.

Thursday

The FARM  is a trio from different parts of the United States.  They have a Little Big Town Feel and are opening for Big & Rich.  Their debut album, Home Sweet Home hits the stores July 17th. Check them out here.

Big & Rich of course made our list! How can we not “Save a Horse, Ride a Cowboy?”  It was fantastic to see the always energetic Big Kenny in 2010 and now has cohort and Celebrity Apprentice winner, John Rich, is back on stage with him for Country Thunder.

Friday

The Roys are back at Country Thunder again and kick off Friday’s festivities on the main stage with their Bluegrass Country sound.

Luke Bryan and Jason Aldean’s tour stops  at Country Thunder and will surely entertain.   This is also the return of Jason and Luke on the main stage at Country Thunder. Anyone remember their 2010 performances?

Saturday

Staind’s frontman, Aaron Lewis, recently released his first country album and is now showing country fans he can also be a country boy.  This sounds like Darius Rucker’s story…rocker turn country boy, but Rucker has proven himself, but can Aaron?

Easton Corbin is also returning to the Country Thunder main stage with country icon Dwight Yoakam, and headliner Blake Shelton. Blake is experiencing great notoriety with his place on The Voice, and for me, he has bigger shoes to fill as his wife, Miranda Lambert, graced the stage 2 years ago and took some time to grab a four wheeler and have some fun with fans in the mud filled campgrounds, so what will Blake do to top that?

Sunday

Country newcomer, Hunter Hayes, is on the bill with country veteran, Neal McCoy.  It also won’t be long  that Brantley Gilbert will be “just the opener” and headlining his own tour soon.  He was recently headlining the Harley Davidson Roadhouse stage at Summerfest in Milwaukee to a packed crowd.  Toby Keith  brings his Red Solo Cup of fun as the closing headliner of Country Thunder in Twin Lakes.

Rascal Flatts at Summerfest 2012

Rascal Flatts brought their “Changed” tour to Milwaukee on June 27th and opened the first day of Summerfest in a rocken style. With a catalog of hits that could keep a crowed going on its own, Rascal Flatts brought along one of the most eye pleasing lighting shows I have seen in years. Between the good music, professional light show and great weather you couldn’t help but have a good time. Not even an average at best audio mix wasn’t able to dampen the energy the guys brought to their performance. Link to the bands site bellow for more information and go see Rascal Flatts when they come through your town. In a time when money is tight, its nice to have a sure bet of a good time.
