On March 14th the streets of Pikeville, KY were lined with rowdy fans waiting to see a kick ass show by Justin Moore, Jon Pardi and Dustin Lynch. As fans packed the venue I noticed mason jars of moonshine, bad boys with rebel attitudes and redneck women. I mean after all, did you expect anything less from Pikeville, KY?
Jon Pardi opened the show. I actually missed his performance, but I have seen him live before and he is awesome! Dustin Lynch was next on the list and the girls were loving it. I saw a few “Crank Your Tractor” signs in the audience. Lynch is such a great performer and everyone should see him on stage at least once.
He performed favorites like “Cowboys & Angels,” but he also did a new song he had written with Josh Thompson called “Thank A Farmer” which is currently a new single for James Wesley. My favorite song was “Last Lap” which was written by Justin Weaver. I was actually thrilled to see that live. Lynch is one of those true country artists and I really appreciate that.
“Justin Moore knows what he is doing when it comes to entertaining a crowd.”
Headlining was of course, Justin Moore. This was my first Justin Moore concert and I didn’t really know what to expect. I will say that he totally blew me away! Justin Moore knows what he is doing when it comes to entertaining a crowd. This was his very first headlining show so there were a few moments that were emotional from him. At one point, I’m pretty sure I saw him wipe a tear from his eye. He left everything he had on that stage and it was one of the best shows I’ve ever seen.
Moore even said a few words about coal mining and gave a shout out to all the miners in the audience which I thought was very cool of him. Dustin Lynch and Justin Moore make a great team and I encourage everyone to check out this show.
