The View From Backstage at WYRK TOC
Another big crowd and a fantastic night for the 2016 WYRK Toyota Taste of Country Friday night at Coca Cola Field. The weather was perfect and afterward we all agreed it was one of the better shows we've had over the years. Billy Currington closed out the night with a high energy show that lasted over an hour and 15 minutes. Earlier it was the Eli Young Band, Granger Smith, Jerrod Nieman and LoCash. What has always amazed me about the shows each year is how technically well-done they are. To put the equipment of five different acts on one stage and have it all come off seamlessly just amazes me. Each act uses its own sound board, some have elaborate light shows. The stage company provides the speakers and monitors. But to get the whole thing to work together - I just think it's incredible. As employees of the radio station we each have a lot of different duties on Taste of Country night, but I give a lot of credit to the crew members that technically make it all work. Many of you have never seen the perspective of a show from the way we see it, so here are some photos of what it looks like backstage while the show is going on.
