Owen, Janson and others bring the Thunder

Janson and others bring the Thunder by Tracy Nightingale
shortage of eye candy for the ladies is how one might describe the
list of only male headlining performers who played July 18-21 at
Country Thunder in Twin Lakes, Wisconsin this concert season. Noted
as one of the strongest festival line-ups this year, this 4 day long
country music extravaganza had been sold out for months prior to
anyone taking the stage. The first one to do that, and a definite
highlight, was Chris Janson, who’s single “Better I Don’t”
might have been good advice for at least a few of the 40,000 party
goers who filled the grounds each day. Although it should be said
that the security team who had to deal with those who were
disruptive, did so in a swift and professional manner. Justin Moore
and Dierks Bentley followed on opening night and both had strong,
energetic sets that set the tone for the rest of the weekend.
than the women of Little Big Town, who never disappoint, newcomers
Morgan Frazier, “Yellow Brick Road” and Sarah Darling, “Little
Umbrellas” rounded out the only other female artists on the bill,
though both had early sets. Keith Urban and Brad Paisley were tops on
nights 2 and 3 respectively and both undoubtedly brought the best of
their world tour, arena shows with them. The fourth and final
headliner was Jake Owen, who may be less experienced as a headliner
than the other three but you would never have known it. All eyes were
on him and at one point, his wife and baby girl whom he proudly
brought on stage.  Hunter Hayes, Chris Young, Joe Nichols, Phil
Vassar, Lee Brice, Dustin Lynch, Parmalee and Brett Eldredge are just
more of the reasons that this years line-up was so strong. Heading
into their 22nd year, Country Thunder, Twin Lakes, Wisconsin 2014
tickets are currently on sale and going fast.
