20 year old singer-songwriter Tucker Beathard opened the night with a bang with his song Smokin' Things. As the son of a 2-time BMI Songwriter of the Year Casey Beathard, Tucker Beathard has been exposed to the craft for much of his life. He was playing drums and guitar with his brother in a band at age 10. The kid definitely knows what he was doing on stage.
Next up was "All In Crazy", as he prepared to play I enlisted the help of a young fan to get him to look my way; she screamed "I LOVE YOU TUCKER!" He looked over with a sweet smirk, laughed, and followed up with saying he LOVED EVERYONE THERE, and that it was just completely amazing! *SNAP*
Next to hit the stage was The Cadillac Three, a band comprised of 3 members who know how to rock! They were engaging and energetic. As Jaren Johnston the lead vocalist began to take off his shirt, he made the remark about how he and Chase Rice work out together which took the crowd into a screaming frenzy. With a look of shock, Johnston informed the crowd that he was being sarcastic and said, "I don't work out, I DRINK OUT!" Near the end of an outstanding set of songs Jaren Johnston & Neil Mason took to the drums simultaneously proving they were nothing short of amazing!
A White curtain fell as the stage crew prepared for the man of the night Chase Rice. Fans cheered as the curtaindropped, and the show commenced with "How She Rolls", and Do It Like This". Chase reminisced about his days at the University of North Carolina, and shared some of the songs off a playlist he would perform before going out which included (Smoke A Little Smoke, Pour Some Sugar On Me, Dust On The Bottle, Living On A Prayer and Free Falling).
At one point, Chase pulled a fan onstage to serenade and every girl in the room radiated jealousy.
When Chase Rice introduced his band they each showed off their musical talents playing song favorites of the past such as :"Friends In Low Places" and "The Small Things". As his band continued to play, Rice jumped into the crowd to sign autographs, phones, etc. Chase also took some selfies with fans for a while post-show.
