Inaugural Shaky Boots Festival

SB2015_0516_193815-9274_LMC-1024x682
What a whirlwind weekend. I originally didn’t have plans to attend the Shaky Boots Music Festival in Kennesaw, Georgia but after several weeks of looking at the lineup, talking with friends, it was something that I had to attend. At least from a media perspective. As an inaugural festival, Shaky Boots definitely didn’t feel like a first year festival. From an attendees view, everything ran so smoothly. I however need to go back and re-read and re-write my “Things to Bring to a Festival.” As a festival veteran, I was completely unprepared for this festival – I’m only assuming I didn’t start packing enough in advance. It was great because normally I wear my cowboy boots because festivals are so dirty, but this festival was clean because the stages were on football fields and some even had AstroTurf! SCORE!

Kinda Dig The Railers.

You’ll kinda dig The Railers after you hear their music. Comprised of band members, Jonathan, Cassandra, Jordan and Tyler – the Railers bring a fun eccentric vibe with their music to fans. They’ve toured and played with Sara Evans, Justin Moore, Hunter Hayes and will no doubt continue to gain popularity among the masses. The Railers debuted their EP, The Geraldine Sessions, last August and then released their single Kinda Dig the Feeling in September. I spoke with Cassandra Lawson, one fourth of The Railers and asked her how the two back to back releases by Warner Nashville has launched them out in front of country music fans.

Surprise Acoustic Set By Thomspon Square.

ThompsonSquare
The pretty cool thing about living in Pensacola is that many celebrities vacation in the area. Some are smart enough to invest in a house or condo. Keifer and Shawna from Thompson Square happen to already be from the area and live about an hour or so from Pensacola. Our local radio station, Cat Country 98.7 decided to host their morning show at the Pensacola Crawfish Festival. So at 3 a.m. they set up shop on the entertainment stage at the festival and hosted their show that morning. But that’s not all because that morning they announced a surprise acoustic set.

Spent two days in Roma (Rome). Absolutely stunned visiting the Colosseum and seeing the architecture and massive structure. Did you know it was designed to hold 50,000 to 80,000 spectators and could be emptied within 10 minutes? They figured this out in 70-80 AD. ...
