I Survived :: Country USA 2008

This post is for all those country fans out there. Can I have a yee-haw! Five days of non-stop country music and festivities in little old Oshkosh, Wisconsin. This year we were graced by headliners such as Sugarland, Dierks Bently, Kenny Chesney, and Brooks & Dunn.

Just a few photos to share from the event, I still do not know what to make of the Osh Vegas sign. It gives a bit of a false impression of the RV park it was housing on the festival campgrounds. And it would not be Wisconsin without a deer on a truck hitch.

The next photo is of Miranda Lambert rocking out on stage, it is no wonder that girl won Album of the Year at the CMA's. A random bit of trivia, I am only four days older then her, so that would make her a Scorpio too. The photo after that is my artistic rendition of Sugarland --aka I was standing waaaay in the back and tried to make the best of it :-D

My proudest moment of the festival was the downpour rain that came through during the Kenny Chesney concert. The storm was crashing down and folks were being pelted, most ran to tents, but with thousands in attendance a good portion began running to our cars. Folks decided the exit tent was a good place to hang out, meanwhile hundreds of folks were trying to get out and blocked by the folks under the tent. Pushing did not work, so a group trampled one of the fences to let the masses out. Take about excitement!

  3. This looks like so much fun. I'm only a "I have to be in the mood" kind of country fan, but I have to say that country acts know how to rock the party. I've seen Keith Urban 3 times and he is AMAZING in concert. If you've never seen him, he's totally worth it!
