Country pop rocks Comfort Dental
Country powerhouse group Rascal Flatts threw summer one last party at Comfort Dental in Denver Saturday night.
The night began with NRA supporter (no really, look at his backdrop) Justin Moore. Sporting a belt buckle bigger than Texas, Moore's energetic swagger and charming twang got country fans up and ready for a good night. His rowdy "How I Got to be This Way," and "Backwoods" turned on everyone's redneck side. He slowed it down for the softer hits like "Smalltown U.S.A." and "If Heaven Wasn't So Far Away," and shouted his appreciation for troops and everyday heroes to a cheering crowd.
Sara Evans took the stage next and began with her hit "As If." The brunette showed off her vocal range but didn't move around as much on stage. Coulda been the high heels, and if we were her, we probably wouldn't be jumping around either. She sang all her hits, as well as her most recent, "A Little Bit Stronger," and the entire crowd sang along.
Between sets, a DJ spun mash-ups of country songs with Top 40 hits. The crowd didn't seem amused when the DJ prompted them to get down to Pitbull. We're thinking he missed the memo about this being a country show...
Rascal Flatts saved the night with an all-white stage set up. In Blue Man-esque fashion, each had a set of drums and took turns with solos before jamming into "Why Wait." If there were ever a more glam country group, we'd love to know. The guys sported rhinestones and chains and looked more like rock stars than country stars.
Dismissing the fact it's almost fall, they broke out "Summer Nights" and other summer feel-good tunes. The guys are expert entertainers, and this show was nothing short of their best.
