Friday at Fan Fair aka CMA Music Festival

Walked around downtown for a few minutes before going into the Wildhorse Saloon. We were there for a Jason Aldean concert that was also fundraiser for the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation.

Jason performed his hits "Hicktown", "Asphalt Cowbow", "Why", "Johnny Cash", "Amarillo Sky" and more. He was energetic and really worked the crowd and surprised us all with doing a few cover songs. He did a few Alabama songs as well as a couple from Guns and Roses

Tracy Lawrence did 5 songs. Two of his hits were "Find Out Who Your Friends Are" and "Paint Me A Birmingham." Very nice set and he still has a cool voice.

Terri Clark played next and told us about performing at the Grand Ole Opry first and than rushing right over to the Wildhorse to perform. She sang a few songs and introduced her newest song "Dirty Girl,"

Brett James, Jim Collins, Jeff Stevens took turns doing songs they had written for country artists. Very entertaining and it was my favorite part of the night. It was truly amazing to hear so many major hits that these guys have written.

To see the full gallery from this concert visit the Tyler Morning Telegraph.

Hermitage Cafe was where we finished the night at around 1:00am and it was crowded with folks who had been at the different concerts and in the various bars and were trying to sober up a little bit before the drive home.
