EVENT: WINTERVILLE WATERMELON FESTIVAL - WINTERVILLE, NC
ARTISTS: MONTGOMERY GENTRY WITH SPECIAL GUEST TYLER FARR
Despite the fact that it poured buckets the night before and the recreation field was absolutely soaked and the mud at least an inch deep, it didn't deter country music fans from coming out. When did you ever hear of a country music fan that was scared of muddin'? We arrived about an hour before the gates opened and the parking areas were completely full and the line was stretched as far back as you could see with antsy people ready to rush the field and fight for the best spot to stretch out their chairs. This was gonna be fun, but then again it WAS Montgomery Gentry and they are synonymous with the word "fun". The crowd was large, ready and packin' the country heat.
Tyler Farr took the stage first, we'd been trying to see him for awhile now so this was a two for one for us. He was great and the crowd loved him. He played for about 30 min or so and when he broke out his last couple of songs, his hit "Hot Mess" and his new single "Hello Goodbye", the crowd loved it. We feel it safe to say that you can pretty much expect Tyler to be a household name sooner rather than later.
Tyler wrapped up and the crowd was getting anxious for Eddie and Troy to take the stage and when they take a stage, they really take a stage. I don't think there's a more energetic couple of guys than Eddie Montgomery and Troy Gentry. These guys know how to work a crowd, keep them up and moving, wanting more and keep 'em loud. They played most of their hits, working in new ones like "Where I Come From" and revving up the ones that got 'em started like "Gone". This was not a concert at all, this was a Montgomery Gentry throwdown. It was loud, proud and exactly what a country concert should be, an experience. Eddie and Troy never disappoint and this was no exception. What better way is there to say goodbye to the summer concert season? I can't think of one.
