When it comes to entertainment, there could not be a better pair than the WFKY Froggy Field Party and the band Blackberry Smoke. Saturday evening proved to be filled with musical entertainment for the whole family to enjoy. Despite the humidity, over 1,700 fans showed up to rock the night away.
Prior to Blackberry Smoke taking the stage, Korey Wayne Sorg, Jordan Bales, and Donald Hinely took part of the Songwriters Stage, showcasing their musical and songwriting abilities. Nashville recording artist, David Adam Byrnes, joined in to play some of his hit songs including “Alcoholiday,” “Sweet Distraction,” “She Only Wanted Flowers,” and “I’ll Be Your Whiskey.” On the main stage, Eddie Barber warmed up the crowd mixing original songs as well as cover songs throughout his set list.
Blackberry Smoke came out with a bang, opening with “Leave a Scar.” Kicking it into high gear, the band played a mixture of their hit songs from their current album “The Whippoorwill,” as well as previous albums. The crowd kicked up the momentum by singing along to the music while dancing to “Up In Smoke,” “Good One Coming On,” and “Like I Am.” The band would mix in “Midnight Rider” with “Sleeping Dogs Lie,” much to the excitement of the fans. Charlie Starr would show off his groovy dance skills along with mastering the guitar.
Being in Kentucky, it was only fitting for the band to cover “Man of Constant Sorrow,” which was originally recorded by Dick Burnett of Monticello, Ky. The 90 minute set would conclude with an encore of “Ophelia” and “Shake Your Magnolia.”
After the last note was played, fans were left with a real appreciation of good music. With each Froggy Field Party, the radio station raises the bar in pure fun and entertainment for the whole family.
