Funny Mr. Rucker plays some of his old Hootie & the Blowfish songs and made them sound country by adding banjo and violin to the music. Of course when I hear “Only Wanna Be With You” and a particular woman sticks in my head.

Lady Antebellum is the headliner tonight. Out comes Hillary Scott (lead and background vocals), Charles Kelley (lead and background vocals, guitar), and Dave Haywood (background vocals, guitar, piano, mandolin) silhouetted from the backlight.

The band has taken a little break and this is their first tour after Hillary and her husband Chris Tyrrell gave birth to twin daughters January of this year. But you would not know it because the band sounds tight and the music was first rate.
