Reckon this could be my last year at C2C - combination of cost of ticket and accommodation, daughters being more interested in other music, and a disappointing line up this year (expected more from an anniversary bash). After the awesomeness last year of Luke Combs, Kip Moore, Ashley McBryde et al, there was certainly a bit of a bubble bursting when the 2023 line ups were announced. Anyhoo, quick rundown for anyone with a passing interest in country…

Friday - being a teacher means no skipping out early, so missed first two acts. Arrived in time for the Old Crow Medicine Show (I only know their one big tune Wagon Wheel) and was pretty impressed. A little bit too trad country for me, but their playing was sensational, and I reckon they had knocked back a few Red Bulls pre show. Mixed with amphetamines. Then it was the headliners - Zac Brown Band, who were excellent. A prime example of a country band who play like a rock band live.

Saturday - missed the openers as we were busy stuffing our faces with the finest fare from WingStop. Arrived in time for Lainey Wilson who took the Ashley McBryde Prize for surprise of the weekend. Outstanding. And what a voice. Then it was Jordan Davis, who was fairly average to be honest, and the headliner, Thomas Rhett. He was actually pretty good, but definitely on the pop-country side of things.

Sunday - skipped the opener Matt Stell (saw him on the spotlight stage last year, and he was fine) and arrived for Morgan Evans (ex husband of Kelsea Ballerini). Very much a Keith Urban vibe to him - and not just because he is an Aussie - and a really good set. More traditional country next, with a little bit of a modern twist, as Midland came on. Pretty entertaining, if not really my cup of tea - I do really like the song that set them on their way though (Drinking Problem). Then it was the always reliable Lady A. Brilliant live as usual. Good end to the event.

What is always in evidence though is the sheer talent kicking about Nashville in terms of guitar playing. Even the smaller acts have stunning players as part of their band. Any one of them could step into a rock band and fit like a glove.
