It's Birthday Bash Weekend!!!

This weekend is one that I look forward to every year.  It's Birthday Bash!  Birthday Bash is a free country concert that is put on by a local radio station, 93.7, and it is two days full of country music!  Did I mention that tickets are FREE?  You just pay for parking and anything you eat and drink while you are there.  In anticipation of this year's bash, I thought I'd explain what happens at Birthday Bash....

You can start parking at 8:00 we are usually in line by 7:30 a.m. to park.  Gates don't open until 10 a.m., so you sit in line all morning and hang out...and take pictures.

Gates open at 10 a.m., the music starts at Noon and goes until about 10 p.m.  You try to sneak in a short nap before the music starts and in between acts.  It's a LONG two days, so naps are necessary:

It always seems to be about 85+ degrees and sunny, so you have to apply sunscreen (you'll see in other pics I didn't apply enough sometimes and got a little burned).

You get to spend quality time with family,

And meet some new friends.

Of course you have to do some singing and dancing...

This is why you apply sunscreen...

And sometimes you get a little drunk crazy.

Now I know what you're thinking....that all sounds fun, but who do you get to see at this FREE two-day concert?  Well let me show you just a sampling of artists I've seen in past years...

Dierks Bentley

Eric Church

Gary Allan

Josh Turner

Thompson Square

Darius Rucker

Jake Owen
Justin Moore
And that's just to name a few!  You can find this year's line up here.

I'll have a full re-cap of this year's bash next week, but I just wanted to give you a preview of what you're missing out on if you aren't going to be there.  If you live in or near Michigan and love country music...this is the place to be!  Thank you B93 for throwing this awesome concert for your listeners!
