Concert night at the Ponoka Stampede is a legendary occurrence. A time when there’s room in the grandstand but the dirt is jam-packed. It’s a time when beer becomes a major food group, and plastic cups are the finest china. So who better to serenade us than the handsome, beer-loving country boy Billy Currington?
I’d bet that half of the concert-goers (at least the ones my age) don’t remember their whole night, so just in case you missed it, I thought I’d set the scene and give a little review.
Thankfully, even though the weather has been a little unpredictable, it was warm and calm for everyone to be outside. The stage was surrounded by a sea of cowboy hats on heads of all ages, full of people laughing and singing along to Currington’s soothing voice. There’s not much to say about the music itself — if you were in attendance, you probably were a fan. I know I was. Billy Currington had a great friendly atmosphere onstage — I bet he’s a pretty humble guy. I hope he had as much fun as we did out there.
So however your concert night played out, I hope you had fun. We’re certainly lucky to have such a big name performing for us! I hope that everyone had a fantastic night with their good beer and crazy people.
Billy would be proud.
