Concert Review: Jerrod Niemann and Randy Travis

Happy Monday,

The weather makes going back to work not so bad since it isn’t as beautiful as this past weekend. It was Country week in NEPA this last week as Jerrod Niemann and Randy Travis performed in the area. What a treat for all Country fans! I would love more weeks like this with Country stars back to back.

Rising Country artist, Jerrod Niemann kicked off the week at Rodano’s in downtown Wilkes Barre on Wednesday, August 18. Niemann was fantastic that evening entertaining the crowd with songs featured on his debut album Judge Jerrod & The Hung Jury, along with many other hits by artists such as Blake Shelton and John Anderson. Niemann did not disappoint as he played two favorite songs off the album, “What Do You Want” and the recent Gold single “Lover, Lover.” I don’t know about you, but “Lover, Lover” is just one of those tracks you just can’t help dancing too. If you ever need a pick me up in the day, I suggest playing some “Lover, Lover,” to make you smile.

Country Legend Randy Travis got the weekend started right with his performance at Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs on Friday, August 20. The weather could not have been better on Friday evening. With a light breeze in the air and a backdrop of bright stars and a beautiful moon above, Travis performed for a record-breaking audience of about 4,500 for the Hot Summer Fun Concert Series this summer at Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs. Travis started the night out with “Better Class of Losers.” Throughout the night Travis entertained the audience with many of his chart topping hits such as “Diggin’ Up Bones,” “ (There Will Be) Peace in the Valley for Me,” “I Told You So,” and “Three Wooden Crosses.” To close out the evening Travis sang his 1987 CMA Single of the Year “Forever and Ever, Amen.”

Both artists were fantastic! I highly recommend catching these great Country Singers in concert. Jerrod Niemann has a slue of radio shows over the next month and will be heading out on tour with Gary Allan beginning on September 9 of this year. Fans have plenty of opportunities to catch Randy Travis with a handful of casino dates well into October. If you were at either of the shows I would enjoy hearing your feedback.
