Country Stampede

On Saturday night we were invited to go to the Country Stampede in Manhattan. After some research, I found out this was the 16th year, but the first we have ever gone to.    Thanks to our hosts, Roy and Linda, we were in the VIP section.  I had heard stories about the lack of clothing and there were definitely some people who should have worn more for their body type, but it wasn't completely revolting.  The first person we heard was Jerrod Niemann, a guy originally from Liberal.
 Next was Blake Shelton.  He sang for a long time and has a top country hit right now with Honey Bee.

This is a shot of the crowd as I stood on my chair and looked back.  There were people as far as you could see back to some vendor's tents.  It wasn't meant to be a picture of the guy in the black muscle shirt.
The last performer was Brad Paisley.  He used the whole back of the stage to show videos and pictures of he and the band as they were performing.  Quite a show!

Abby went with friends for three days.  The average age there seemed to be no more than 30, so while she is younger than that, it was a young crowd.  She was pretty tired when she got home and tired of being dirty even though the girls took a shower a Blake's every day.
Grandma and Grandpa - did you survive the Stampede??
I could come rescue you on my horse!  This would be his Stampede outfit - just the diaper.

It was fun, and much thanks to Roy and Linda for taking us with them.
