I wanted to share a little bit from my adventure broadcasting live at Country Fest in Cadott, WI last week. :) I LOVE Sugarland, Kristian and Jennifer are unbelievably sweet. That's Chase and I above with them before their amazing show at Fest. They sure had a great time...check out what they thought below...
From Sugarland's Blog....
How should we say this? Wisconsin thank you for putting our tour truly in YOUR hands! The energy last night was from another world, and the fever has spread like a contagious disease. Thank you, Cadott, for reminding us why we do this!
We commenced the show with "Wide Open", and while walking down the catwalk we really did split the crowd wide open! However, it wasn't until "Stuck Like Glue" that we felt the energy you all were bringin' to the table. After the jivin', jiggin', and jumpin' happened during this song we decided you all wouldn't need too much convincing to have a good time!
It wouldn't have been a show in Wisconsin without Kristian doing something crazy and you guys proving you could party. During one of our favorites, "Everyday America" Jennifer shooed Kristian into the crowd to bring back someone who "wasn't drunk". It was a long day, we understand! After sweet Rachel was dragged onstage Jennifer turned to crowd and laughed saying, "I don't think you qualify for the non-drunk part!"
Like all of our shows, there was a time when the crowd settled down and chose to be captivated by the music. Last night was one of the most powerful examples of this, even though the arena was one of the largest we've visited. When we sang "Stay", Jennifer turned to the crowd and people began tearing up, hugging, and holding hands. We love to see that our music has this effect on people and that it can bring people from all over together in one moment, one night.
Kristian felt the sincerity of the moment, but he also felt the sincerity of the energy in the room. Although he had that huge stage to run around on, he seemed to like the end of the catwalk. Taking to the lively crowd, Kristian walked to the end of the stage after finishing "Incredible Machine", rolled up his sleeves, and shredded his guitar. Now, Cadott, who was actually more fired up last night? We blame you!
Not only was there drinking and dancing all day long, but a few other acts helped us get the crowd rowdy, and Jennifer made a point to appreciate their appearances at the Country Fest. "This was fun for us as an artist to play festival shows because we never get to see other artists. Thanks so much for letting us share this day full of music with you!" And we mean it, Cadott. Thanks for sharing your love for music, laughter, and how to be an all around good-time-Charlie with us! We will never forget Wisconsin.
