Third Annual Capitol Street Party

Happy Thursday,

Wooohoo, it is the weekend in just a bit.  Wow, the time just flew by for me this week.  Not surprising with all the changes, which have occurred in my life this past week.  Would love to hear how your week was, care to share?

Only in Nashville can you walk down to Music Row on a Wednesday night to catch a show with four major recording artists.  The best thing of it all, it is the cost was 100% Free.  This is why I love this city!  Last night, October 13, was Capitol Records third annual Capitol Street Party.  The event is hosted by major recording label Capitol Records, home to many famous musicians in many genres of music.

The lineup was jam packed with talent.  Newcomer, Jennette McCurdy, best known for her act on iCarly got the party started.  McCurdy was on target as she got the crowd revved for the music packed evening ahead.  My favorite song from her set was her current single, “Not That Far Away.”  Troy Olsen kept the crowd on their toes as he took the stage shortly after McCurdy.  Olsen is very entertaining on stage and fit right into the lineup.  As long as he keeps playing that guitar he is one artist that is sure to stay.  Olsen’s single “Good Hands,” had the crowd singing the song word for word along with him.

The party was just getting underway as Luke Bryan was up next.  Bryan had the ladies screaming and the men rooting before he even took to the stage.  He turned this Country show into all out Country Rock fest.  The crowd sang along as he did his best-known hits “Someone Else Calling You Baby,” “We Rode In Trucks,” “Rain Is A Good Thing,” and “Do I.”  Bryan got the crowd rocking as he covered Metallica’s “Enter Sandman.”

Last, but certainly not least, was the talented Darius Rucker.  Rucker played many of his top hits.  The crowd literally did not stop singing along throughout Rucker’s entire set.  Many of his hits played included “History In The Making,” “Don’t Think I Don’t Think About It,” “It Won’t Be Like This For Long,” “Alright,” and “Come Back Song.”   Rucker had a surprise for the crowd as in the middle of his performance he introduced Keith Urban.  Urban joined Rucker in his a cover of Steve Miller Band’s “The Joker,” and Urban’s hit “Raining On Sunday.”  Rucker closed the evening out with one of my all time favorite songs, “Purple Rain.”  Perfect song to end a perfect evening!

Music City is the only place where you can experience an amazing show at no cost.  I want to hear from you, if you were at the show I want to know your thoughts.  Who was your favorite of the night?  Wish anyone else was in the lineup?  What did you think of Keith Urban coming by?

As always keep those ears entertained bloggers.

    I wish I could’ve been there! It sounds terribly fun, even for those of us with an inherent bias against country 😉 Free shows are great ways to bring the community together.
