Although I do not listen to country music, I love shooting country shows. The crowd is always super into it and the artists always make sure to give them a SHOW. There’s no half-stepping in country music. The fans will call you out. This Jason Aldean show lacked a bit on the show side of things, but made up for it in effort.
Aldean isn’t the flashiest of artists, he basically played his guitar and strutted around the stage a bit. We only got two songs, so I didn’t really have a chance to get a great feel for him, but it was clear the audience loved him.
Shooting from the soundboard is never fun, more so when the performer likes to pull his cowboy hat down low, but hey, not much I can do about that.
