Chris Young and Danielle Bradbery came over to the Orange County Fair last week and we had the chance to go and hear their great voices. After seeing the great show, I was thinking about what I wanted to say in my review and I had a real epiphany.

It makes sense since Brad is known for his great sense of humor. They both talked before Mickey, then Sarah did a few minutes before Justin Moore and John did a few before Brad. ... read more!
I will be honest with you; I have started this and stopped it all week, just could not find a way to piece it together without using the same cliché’s about a Phil Vassar concert. I wanted something different but my thoughts always led back to: two nights…two great shows. Add more clichés of fun, energetic, robust, crowd pleasing and never disappoints. ... read more!
