Singin' Like a Biird

Sugarland concert last night ... AWESOME!

Opening for Sugarland was Canaan Smith (@cannansmith). Fresh blood on the music scene. Not quite as country as I would have expected but good. He dressed like "The Kid" right down to the skater shoes and saggy pants.

Then came Lauren Alaina (@Lauren_Alaina). The 17 year old "Georgia Peaches" songstress was a bouncy peppy bundle of vocal chords and charisma on stage. She brought a young man from the audience on stage with her, gave a shout out to her mom who was in the audience, and seemed to be having a GREAT time singing and dancing. Unfortunately I didn't manage to catch a good picture of Lauren and the guy from the audience.

Then came the headliner - SUGARLAND!!
(@SugarlandMusic, @KristianBush, @JenniferNettles)

They were much fantastic! The tour is called "in Your Hands" since they were taking requests via Twitter , text voting, and signage. One of the songs they sang as a request was Tennessee. Jennifer brought onto the stage the young man who made the sign requesting it.

Some of the other songs they did:

  • Stay
  • Little Miss
  • Settlin'
  • Baby Girl (with a local girl who did an AWESOME job)
  • Incredible Machine
  • Sugarland
  • and lots more, even a little George Michael (Faith)

All in all, a wonderful night.
