Brad Paisley, Randy Houser + Leah Turner Play Bangor Waterfront [PHOTOS]
The Bangor Waterfront was quite the party on June 15th as Grammy Award-winning artist Brad Paisley stopped in on his Country Nation tour. The crowd was packed with veterans, first responders, and country music fans alike for a rockin’ good time.
Charlie Worsham kicked off the event with an unmatched level of energy singing his first single “Could It Be.” Charlie and his band surprised the audience with a banjo-induced cover of Ozzy Osbourne’s ‘Crazy Train’ before Charlie took off running through the crowd stopping only to take selfies with fans.
Worsham was followed by country newcomer Leah Turner who brought all the sass and sequins you would expect from a Cali girl. Leah took the stage belting out ‘Make Your Move’ followed by her first single “Take the Keys” and current single “Pull Me Back.” The audience sang and danced along to Leah’s Dixie Chicks cover of “Cowboy Take Me Away” and Beyoncé’s “Single Ladies” before closing out her set with “My Finger.”
The Bangor crowd welcomed the third performer, Randy Houser as Dee Jay Silver introduced the singer with a techno mix of Houser’s radio singles. Smoke covered the stage as Randy shook the crowd with his his hit ‘Boots On’. Smoke rolled and stage lights flashed as Houser played his most popular songs “How Country Feels,” and “Goodnight Kiss.” A cover of Garth Brooks’ “Friends in Low Places” was all it took to get the audience up on their feet and screaming the lyrics. Houser left the crowd with “Runnin’ Out of Moonlight” as Dee Jay Silver took over to entertain while the sets changed.
Audience members grooved along to Dee Jay Silver’s techno mixes of country hits like “This is How We Roll” by Florida Georgia Line and rock hits like “Pour Some Sugar on Me” by Def Leppard. But it wasn’t long before the iconic white cowboy hat took the stage.
Brad Paisley started the show with “Moonshine in the Trunk” and hardly paused for one second after that. Paisley played hit after hit including “Southern Comfort Zone,” “Waiting on a Woman,” and “Mud on the Tires.” Brad made his set about much more than his music paying tribute to country legend George Jones and taking photos and autographing Flat Daddies of American soldiers. Paisley endlessly entertained the audience with high-energy guitar solos, hilarious videos on the big screen, and a guitar vs. DJ competition with Dee Jay Silver. Paisley closed the show with his mega-hit “Alcohol” handing his hat to an audience member and capping off a spectacular night of entertainment on the Waterfront.
The Country Nation Tour will make its next stop in Noblesville, IN Thursday June 19th.
