I must admit, the thought of people in Boston going all out for country fest kind of made me laugh…but the people up here did pretty well at supporting Zac Brown Band and Kenny Chesny. I was thoroughly impressed. 60,000 fans filled Gilette Stadium, (night 2) tailgated all day…and all in defiance of Hurricane Irene. We toughed out the rain, and Kenny and Zac jammed out for us in the end, doing some off the cuff performances of Baby Got Back, Dixieland Delight and Tom Petty. Priceless. The only thing that was lacking was a swing dance partner…that was one thing that Boston just didn’t have.
