Rain Doesn’t Stop Blake Shelton Last Night at Superfest!
The Bayou Country Superfest took over LSU Stadium and not even the rainy weather could put out the sizzling hot artists at this year's event!
Kristian Bush kicked off the Superfest Saturday afternoon with his latest single "Trailer Hitch". During his set, Bush performed a few songs that he had written as well. When was kinda interesting to hear "Baby Girl" sung by someone other than Jennifer Nettles. Kristian and Jennifer made up the duo Sugarland.
Colt Ford followed Bush with his own style of Americana music. He had an American Flag hooked to his mike stand during his performance. And... I personally hold Mr. Ford responsabile for you blown eardrums!
With the reminder of the evening and the addition of a Sunday afternoon, country fans young and old enjoyed the hottest acts that country music has to offer today. The two artists I was looking forward to see was Tyler Farr and David Nail. Neither disappointed the crazed country crowd in Tiger Country.
Brantley brought it, Kenny Chesney sang, but let's talk about Miranda Lambert. By the time she hit the stage, a dark dark cloud hovered over Tiger Stadium. Then 15 minutes into her set everyone, including Miranda were drenched. She made the most out of it by performing in the downpour. Unfortunately her set lasted maybe half an hour. Baton Rouge was placed under a tornado warning and the show was put on hold until the weather cleared a bit.
And then the moment came, Blake Shelton made his debut at the Bayou Country Superfest and let me tell ya, he did not disappoint. Matter of fact he put on a two hour show for the crazed crowd in attendence. In my opinion, Blake Shelton is the best entertainer to ever perform at the Superfest! I said it! I put him ahead of Strait, Kenny, Luke, Jason, and even a soaked Miranda Lambert. Even Ms. Swift.
Overall attendance for the weekend was estimated at 125,000, according to event organizers Festival Productions Inc. The number includes the sell-out crowd for Taylor Swift and rings in at about 10,000 less than last year's Bayou Country Superfest triple-header.
