Chris Young from the USA was a surprise package as I hadn’t taken too much notice of him in the past but when he started singing I realised that there were a lot of his songs that I knew and really liked.

Jackie Bristow from NZ performed a few songs on the small stage whilst the main stage was being set for Jasmine Rae.  I am always amazed at how much energy Jasmine brings to the stage.

Morgan Evans had just won New Oz Artist of the Year at the CMC Music Awards the night before and seeing him perform it was easy to see why.

The headline act for the Saturday was Big & Rich from the USA.  Most people would know their hits “Save a Horse Ride a Cowboy” and “Coming to Your City”.  They put on a huge show complete with a working bar on stage, dancing girls and Cowboy Troy.
