Stagecoach 2019 really saved the best day for last. Despite numerous technical issues, the performances were incredible. Mitchell Tenpenny struggled with sound issues which delayed the performance over 20 minutes, which led to sweaty but excited fans chanting his name. Jason Aldean struggled with microphones not picking up his vocals during his first three songs, but this was ignored by the fans who were singing all the words anyways. Additionally, two sets of the day were cancelled as both Jordan Davis & Mark Chesnutt were sick and called off their performances.
Lauren Alaina, who was the third to last set of the weekend, performed her hit song “Next Boyfriend” for the audience while bringing up a random guy from the crowd. Alaina does this at each performance, but according to her, this is the first time that the guy she brought up knew every word of her song. She laughed on stage and handed the microphone to this man to sing the final chorus. His dance moves and their humor brought smiles to everyone’s faces. Tom Jones hit the stage for a stoic performance. Ladies’ underwear was even tossed towards the stage during his set.
Old Dominion performed as the sun was setting and energy was high. The band was definitely a crowd favorite simply due to cheering level volume. It was a great day for country fans, and a wonderful way to wrap up the weekend!
