Jason Aldean- “They Don’t Know Tour” at Coral Sky Amphitheater

Not going to lie guys, as I sit here writing this review, I’m pretty bummed that this past weekend has come and gone, and the “They Don’t Know Tour” has made its way through our town. Then again in a way I’m happy, because as I sit down and write this review, I get to go through the photos taken and re-live the show with each one. I’ve truly enjoyed every concert I’ve been to this season, but this show in particular really meant a lot to me. I can clearly remember the first time I knew that the country bug bit me, and it had a little something to do with the headliner of this tour.  It was a beautiful summer day in Maine, and I was floating in a pool on vacation thinking life couldn’t get any better than this. Well.. that’s when “Dirt Road Anthem” came on. I don’t know what it was about that song, but it opened the country doors for me and I’m so glad it did.  I’ve waited years to see Jason in concert and it finally felt like things we coming full circle being at this show.

Making his way down from Chattanooga, Tennessee, Kane Brown took the stage and made South Florida a little hotter on Saturday night. I don’t think I’ve heard that many girls scream for a boy since I attended a Jonas Brothers concert my senior year. Playing hits like “Used To Love You Sober,” “What if,” and “Home Town Proud,” got the crowd up and out of their seats to dance and sing along with the rising country star. Hoping that he would, Kane played one of his new songs “Never Found You” which will be released along with four other new tracks in November. With such a deep, distinct voice, it’s no wonder he got his start in country music by winning his 11th grade singing competition covering Chris Young’s “Getting’ You Home. “ Who knew only five years later he would be sharing the stage with Chris.

Full circles happening all around, Chris Young was next to take the stage. Starting out his 13-song set list, “Lonely Eyes,” “Who I Am With You,” and “Sober Saturday Night” were just among the few. Previously named “County Music’s Hottest Bachelor,” Young stood on that stage and made all the women drool while rocking out on his guitar. His band sounded incredible and it was a match made in heaven mixing with Chris’ voice.  Closing out his set with “Tomorrow” and “I’m Comin’ Over,” Young had everyone in that amphitheatre on their feet singing to every word.

It was finally time to not only see the man that got me into country music live on stage, but also photograph him as well. I honestly don’t know how things could get any better. Debuting with a huge entrance, Aldean kicked off his set with his brand new single “They Don’t Know.”  From then on it was hit after hit (which Jason has plenty of) for the rest of the night. Now it’s not my kind of party until someone forgets the words am I right? With a little help from the sold out crowd, Jason got right back into the swing of things with songs such as “Night Train,” “Amarillo Sky,” and a beautiful tribute to the talented Glen Campbell who passed away earlier this month. The band then started playing the first few cords of the next song and I about fell out of my chair. It was “Dirt Road Anthem.” I sang my dang heart out and just remember feeling so happy in that moment.  Jason ended his amazing show with “Big Green Tractor” and “She’s Country,” two tracks that put him on the map and where it all began.

It’s crazy how music can have such an impact in your life.  I think that’s why I enjoy country so much. It has given me great memories with beautiful people and helped me through so much in my experiences.  Combining it with my love for photography, that’s how life gets better.

It all started a few years ago when I was a bridesmaid in a wedding and saw the photographer doing her thing when something clicked. I got home, whipped out my camera, started teaching myself little by little and the rest is history. I'm not sure what could be better than combining my love for music with my love for photography. You know that butterfly feeling in the pit of your stomach when you know something feels right? Yah.. That's me and photography. Combine that with capturing amazing artists and high energy shows and I wouldn't trade it for the world.
