**Video from Lady Antebellum show**

Okay, so I promised in my last post that
I would post the video when it was done...
so here it is!
So, if you missed the Lady Antebellum show this past Wednesday, Aug. 4th at Wisconsin Valley Fair in Wausau, WI, you may well have missed your last chance to see them live in concert for only $5! Guess what though? I took a short sound clip of (most of) the song "American Honey", and set it to a slideshow of photos I took of the show! Take a listen and catch a feel for the energy of the crowd of 10,000 people. Perhaps you weren't there, but my camera was lol! Enjoy :)

August 4th - Lady Antebellum LIVE!

Hey y'all!

So, I attended a live concert at the Wisconsin Valley Fair last night featuring my newest favorite Country band Lady Antebellum!! Yeah so it was a 90 mile drive, and I had to sit for 4 hrs before the show, but so what! Just to BE part of a crowd of 10,000 people is amazing, not to mention the energy of the show! I'd really love to run sound on a show this big sometime!!

The crowd, standing after singing the National Anthem, waiting for Lady A

It was the first time I had seen them live, and for a $5 fair admission, I wasn't going to pass up the opportunity. Got some pretty good shots of the show from the bleachers... wished I had a longer lens though! Funny how you don't think about that sort of thing until it causes problems. Oh well, I still got some decent shots... and a sound clip!
(Yes I'll make a video, be patient!!)

Lady Antebellum, live in concert!

Then after the show, I ate a huge sundae and watched the girls (and guys) try to ride the mechanical bull. That was hilarious :)

1 girl riding the bull...

What could be better than one bull-riding girl?
Two of course lol!
By popular demand, 2 girls ride the bull at once!!
Totally hilarious :)

I should have joined in the fun, but had no one with me to watch my camera. I really don't want that stolen... and you can't just automatically trust a couple thousand strangers milling around in the dark!

Yeah it was fun! At least the bleacher chairs were comfortable and it didn't rain... there anyway. It rained less than 10 miles away from the site... yes, I believe God was watching out for us all... I still remember the 2003 concert where we all sat in the rain to hear Don Williams at the Northern Wisconsin State Fair. That was kinda cold and annoying, but 100% worth it!!

I'm still pumped.
Thought I'd share it with y'all... and yes, I'm proud to be a Country Boy; hey, what else could I be?

Til later,

Random bleacher shot, behind me.

Haha okay, I'll post the link to the full album of shots when they are edited up :)
