The Last Rodeo

This past weekend I was given the opportunity to see some legends of country music on their last tour.  Brooks & Dunn are mainstays of the scene for two decades and I've never before seen them live.

Being able to see such industry icons was a rare treat. I did not however wear a cowboy hat.

The opener was Jason Aldean a musician who has grown on me. He worked at his show but definitely hid behind the microphone a little much. That didn't stop the crowd from rocking out though. His crowd pleasing singles warmed the place up well.

During B&D there were some cool historic videos and a great tribute to the armed forces which included bring some servicemen out to be applauded and praised. That is always a cause for hooting and hollering and generally showing your pride in America.  And since it was a country show, the crowd played their part smashingly.

These remarkable performers won't be around forever so catch them while you can.
