Countryfest 2004 – Were You There? You Wouldn’t Believe Who Was! [PHOTOS]

Amazing when you look at the lineup back then.  Keith Urban. Brad Paisley, Craig Morgan and more. Household names now – not so much back then!   Here are some of my shots that I found in an old shoebox. (not really – it was on my hard drive).  There’s even a crowd shot.  Were you there? 

Can You Find Yourself?  This is like “Where’s Waldo?”

Remember Josh Gracin of “American Idol” fame?  Great performer!

2004 was a great year, for sure.  Hope to see you THIS year at Countryfest 2013!
