What Was Your First Country Concert?
With June here and the weather finally warning up, the outdoor concert season is well underway and will only get busier.
The 20th anniversary of the Toyota Taste of Country is just over a week away (June 14th). Tons of Darien Lake country shows such as Zac Brown Band, Thomas Rhett and Dierks Bentley. Jam in the Valley too, with Brothers Osborne, Ashley McBryde, among others...plus the Erie County Fair, with Kane Brown and Diamond Rio coming through.
But all that concert fun started somewhere. What was your very first country concert? Whether it was indoor or outdoor.
For me, it was Shania Twain. I remember the date too, September 30th, 2003 at the arena (it was called HSBC arena back then). I was only a kid but I remember being so excited I was getting the chance to be at a big show like that. James Otto opened for Shania that night, long before he released "Just Got Started Lovin' You."
James wore a Bills jersey. Shania's drummer wore a Sabres jersey. It was a night I will never forget.
