Dirt Road to Mansfield

What makes for a great summer night? Put Florida Georgia Line and Luke Bryan on the same stage. The ComcastCenter in MansfieldMA did just that to kick off the month of June. Some of the biggest songs in country music filled the night air. The crowd was given a powerhouse of a show by headliner Luke Bryan with support from Florida Georgia Line and opener Cole Swindell.

Cole Swindell took the opening slot, filling in for Thompson Square who was sidelined due to vocal chord injuries. Swindell, Luke Bryan’s former merchandise guy hit it hard to get the crowd fired up. Cole has been hard at work on and off the stage writing songs for Luke and also Scotty McCreery. This is one guy to keep your eyes and ears on in the coming years!

One of the hottest acts in country music took the middle slot of the show, Florida Georgia Line. Tyler and Brian, the two front men for FGL are on fire right now. I had the pleasure of photographing these guys back in May of 2012 on the Country Throwdown tour when not many people even knew who they were. I can tell you now that I think everyone knows Florida Georgia Line. Playing their singles such as “Get Your Shine On” and “Cruise”, made the crowd blow up. You would have thought these guy were the headliners! Get out and check Florida Georgia Line this summer!

To close out, Luke Bryan wowed the sold out crowd. This is one guy that is right at home on the big stage sharing his music with thousands each and every night. I have been photographing Luke for about two years now and I can tell you that he and his band have come a long way. Bryan’s current production, “Dirt Road Diaries Tour” has a bit of everything. From massive video screens flashing graphics, to the band gathering at the front of the stage for an acoustic set part way through the show.

Luke gave the audience everything he had playing all his hits such as “Kiss Tomorrow Goodbye” and “Someone Else Calling you Baby”. His list of hits just keep growing and growing including his newest single “Crash My Party”. Bryan’s chemistry with his band is one of the best I have seen. Each member brings 110% to the stage each night and combine that with Bryan’s energy, you get one of the best show money can buy!
