On July 30th, country stars Mo Pitney, Rodney Atkins and Scotty McCreery took over the Ventura Fairgrounds in Ventura, California. Up-and-coming Nashville country artist Mo Pitney started off the night with an intimate acoustic set, playing his originals stripped down for a novel experience for fans. Next up was legendary country veteran Rodney Atkins. While performing his songs, he gave some backstories for each of his big hits; at one point during his set, he talked about a song he wrote for his son and started to cry, making his performance so much more emotionally-charged!
For country lovers, this was a show you couldn’t miss!
Last to go onstage was headliner and country star Scotty McCreery. I remember watching him on American Idol back in 2011; it was epic to be a part of his 10 year anniversary tour! During his set, McCreery gave a lot of glory to Christ, who he admits is a huge part of his life and music. This was my first time seeing all these artists and, turns out, all are must-see sets if you’re a fan of all types of country music! If Mo Pitney, Rodney Atkins or Scotty McCreery make a stop in a city near you, do not hesitate to grab a tickets! It was definitely a night to remember!
