Monday Memories: Music Comes Alive

My wife and I had the pleasure of attending the 2019 Buckeye Country Superfest.  We arrived early and stayed until the big show ended.  We had perfect seats and enjoyed our time.

Welcome to the Buckeye Country Superfest from Ohio Stadium on the campus of The Ohio State University in Columbus, Ohio.

Country music fans assemble at the “Shoe”

Sitting in Ohio Stadium offers quite a view

 

Buckeye Country Superfest fills the place

Hungering for “Country”—ready to taste

 

Football won’t be on the agenda this Saturday

Filling the Horseshoe with music and fun today

 

Pleasurable, comfortable June weather arrives

Assuring five performers will sing, full and alive

 

Raelynn, Midland, and Chris Janson arrive here

Adding their unique music for everyone to hear

 

Blake Shelton and George Strait close out the night

Singing memorable hits under the stars, what a sight

 

Aspiring, fresh talent Raelynn launches the show

Sharing her lovely voice, with music ready to go

 

Midland’s Texas honky-tonk excites the crowd

Harmonizing and powerful performers—Wow!

 

Their astounding ability to entertain and sing

Recognizing this trio possess talent to bring

 

Rising star Chris Janson comes out on the stage

Energizing, bold music thrills people of any age

 

He humbling witnesses about his rich Christian faith

Gathering his incredible voice, what music he makes

 

The evening definitely isn’t ready to stop, not at all

Waiting in the wings, the biggest talents stand tall

 

Blake Shelton performs an array of hit after hit

Pumping up the crowd to a frenzy, few ever sit

 

He turns the stadium into a church with “God’s Country”

Blessing an audience in the middle of Buckeye Country

 

Blake prepares the gathering for the “real” King

Walking out now, George Strait steps up to sing

 

The King of Country Music sings to everyone

Witnessing his classic tunes is so much fun

 

His band “Ace in the Hole” adds to the grand night

George sings “Amarillo by Morning” . . . Goodnight!

  1. I imagine there will not be a 2020 event like this… what a shame, huh? We pray for the 2021 to be free of the virus so we can resume activities like this one again. How exciting it must have been to hear those great voices in person!

    • Jan, I apologize for being tardy in replying to this comment. Yes, the event for this summer was cancelled, but hopefully 2021 will welcome it back. It was an amazing festival of country music.
