RaeLyyn, a semi-finalist on The Voice has garnered so attention with country radio and performed a short 20 minute set that primed the crowd.
McCreey, an American Idol winner from a few years ago. I have to say, I rmember seeing him on Idol and it's impressive how he has matured since them. Scotty did a great job of keeping the crown happy and included some country classics in his 40-45 minute set along with most his hits and his new single.
Rascal Flatts was terrific, Gary Levox has extraordinary vocal skills and it's kind of cool how most of the band gets their chance to shine in the spotlight.
One odd thing, and this is now the second artist I've seen this year to do this, there was no encore. Granted, they did a nice set, packed with hits, and it was fine from a time perspective - I just think the ritual of the encore is something we all expect and for me, I really miss it.
