Summer Nights in Hartford

The Live & Loud tour featuring Rascal Flatts, The Band Perry and Cassadee Pope played to a sold out Comcast Theater in Hartford Connecticut in June. With a line up such as this, you are in for a real treat and a perfect summer night made the night even better.

For those of you that watch the TV show, The Voice may remember Cassadee Pope. This young 24 year old was the winner of season 3 of The Voice. This was my second time in a matter of weeks seeing and photographing Pope, and I can see why she was crowned the winner of The Voice. She is such a natural and has a voice that just carries over the summer air.

Once the crowd was warmed up, Neil, Kimberly and Reid, better known as The Band Perry hit the stage. Only having signed to Republic Nashville during the summer of 2009, this is one band that just keeps getting bigger by the day. Having just turned 30, Kimberly, the oldest of the three siblings makes the stage her home along with her brothers. You might think the Perry’s have been doing this for far longer. Their high energy shows are filled with their hits such as “You Lie”, “If I Die Young” and their latest hit “DONE”.

Then came the band everyone was waiting for all night, Rascal Flatts. This is a band that you could say has stood the test of time. Having been together for more than a decade, Rascal Flatts might be bigger now than they ever have been. Having seen Rascal Flatts many times over that last few years, their shows continue to pack a punch every time. Drummer and bandleader, Jim Riley lays the foundation down to a “T”. Rascal Flatts entertains the audience with their catalog of hits like “Prayin’ For Daylight”, “Fast Cars and Freedom”, and “Me and My Gang”.

If you have not done so, or even if you have seen them a dozen times, get out this summer and catch Rascal Flatts.

One thought on “Summer Nights in Hartford”

  1. Thanks for this review, I am seeing this tour in September and I can’t wait. I’ve only been a country fan for the past few years so I need to brush up on my Rascal Flatts hits – I know I will be a laughing stock if I don’t know all the words to Mayberry…
