Willamette Country Music Festival Day 2
Day 2 of the festival was another long day! I had to get up super early in the morning & drive back home (about an hour drive) to take a CPR refresher course for coaching and then drive back to my parents'. We spent some time at my brother's camp site before we went in to watch, and again we had to wait in line for a looong time! At least this time we only missed the first couple of songs and not half of the show!
First up was Thompson Square. Well, they were the first that we saw anyway. We missed a couple of other acts when we were visiting with my brother & sister-in-law.
I've always thought Thompson Square had cute songs but I haven't really been a huge fan. Well, after seeing them in concert I am definitely a fan! They were just adorable. They seemed to genuinely enjoy performing. During one of their songs "If I didn't have you" the husband of the duo totally stole a couple of kisses.
I thoroughly enjoyed their concert and I definitely recommend going to see them if you get the chance!
The sunset was beautiful!
Can't beat these views.
Surrounded by trees.
My dad loves country music. We had to take a picture in our country get up.
My lovely parents. I was the 3rd wheel for the weekend because my hubs had football stuff to do :( But I don't think they minded me tagging along :)
What I wore: dress: uoionline.com (similar) (similar) // Boots: Madden Girl (similar) // Earrings: Kohls (old).
Ran in to a friend & got photo bombed by a stranger who apparently likes siriracha hot chili sauce ;)
It was soo hot! My mom & I got some much needed Hawaiian shaved ice. It was exactly what we needed because we were pretty miserable in the heat and the dust!
I got cherry & pineapple, and she got blackberry peach.
The headliner for the night: ERIC CHURCH! I love him! I feel like a lot of his songs have more interesting sounds than your average country song. I think the song that made me really start to like Eric Church was "Homeboy".
He didn't have to talk much because his music was so great! But when he did talk it was meaningful. He talked about making memories and how he remembered when he was at a Bruce Springsteen concert when he realized that singing and entertaining was what he wanted to do.
