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.

  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!
