Country Music Hits the Fair Grounds of NEPA

Good Afternoon Bloggers,

Hope you all are feeling well rested after the three-day weekend.  Labor day was filled with a nice break and time to spend with friends and family.   The music scene is thriving in NEPA right now as the Allentown Fair wraps up and the Bloomsburg Fair is just a few weeks away.

The Allentown Fair was filled with headliners from Tuesday, August 31st until Monday, September 6th.  The lineup included acts such as Rush, Weezer, Lady Antebellum, Keith Urban, and Justin Bieber.   Two of my favorite shows at the Allentown Fair were Lady Antebellum and Keith Urban.  What can I say, “I’m a Country girl at heart.”

Lady Antebellum was the first Country act in the line up on Thursday, September 2nd for the 2010 fair schedule and they did not disappoint.  Opening act, Danny Gokey got the crowd ready for a Country night with song such as “Crazy Not To Go” and “My Best Days Are Ahead Of Me.”  Gokey couldn’t leave the stage without singing his Country Top 40 Hit “I Will Not Say Goodbye.”  Lady A put on one heck of a show with chart topping hits such as, “Need You Now,” “Looking For A Good Time,” and “Stars Tonight,” among others.

Keith Urban was an amazing act to catch on Friday, September 3rd, with opening act Kris Allen.  Allen was on his ‘A’ game Friday night entertaining the crowd with “Can’t Stay Away” and “Live Like You Were Dying.”  Keith Urban took the stage shortly after Allen’s opening keeping the crowd on their feet well into the night.  Urban opened with one of my personal favorites, “Kiss The Girl.”  Soon after, he let the crowd take over with “You’re My Better Half.”  Some of his other hits played that night included Chart-toppers such as “Till Summer Comes Around,” “Stupid Boy,” and “Making Memories.”

Now I can’t wait for the Bloomsburg Fair with Lady Antebellum making their return to NEPA to kickoff the concert series.  Other Country acts for the fair include David Nail, Craig Morgan, and Gloriana.  I am truly looking forward to catching all these talented musicians.  I know my ears won’t be disappointed.

Keep those ears entertained bloggers.

Musically,

Chelsea  ♫

    Lady A and Keith Urban are so awesome. I’ve never had the chance to see a concert from either side, but I definitely know their music and I can only imagine having the pleasure of seeing them live is amazing beyond words. Keep us informed with more news, Chels, not to mention keep us jealous at how many great country (and other musical!) acts you take in! LOL Love it!
