The
inaugural Watershed Festival took place at the scenic
Gorge Amphitheatre in George, Wash. this past weekend.  The festival
spanned three nights, featured a-list country artists and attracted over
50,000 fans
 

Fans lit up the night while Dierks Bentley played his No. one song, “Home.”  “It’s a really cool thing to
be
able to headline the first night of a new festival and help get things
kicked off,” said Bentley.  “The Gorge is such a beautiful location, and
the country fans in the Northwest came ready for a party weekend.
I can’t wait to play it again!”
 

Dwight Yoakam performed for an enthusiastic crowd on Friday, Aug. 3 at Watershed Festival.  The Seattle Times commented
that “… the music rocked. Fans were already talking about next year.”
 Other performers throughout the weekend included Blake Shelton, Kix
Brooks, Thompson Square, Brantley Gilbert,
Tracy Lawrence and many more. 
 

“This
is what I pictured when I grew up wanting to be a country star,” said
Miranda Lambert on stage at Watershed Festival as she performed on Aug.
4. 
 

 Sara
Evans commanded the stage on Aug. 4 at Watershed.  Live Nation already
has plans in motion, with Watershed 2013 scheduled for Aug. 2-4.  “I set
out to make Watershed an epic festival for the Pacific Northwest and
the great country music fans in that region,” said Brian O’Connell of
Live Nation.  “I feel like we are off to an amazing start and I’m blown
away by the support from the fans.  We designed this festival with the
artists in mind too and are fortunate to have had the caliber of
performers join us for this first year, and thank them for sharing in
our vision.  We can’t wait for 2013!”
