This was a dream - standing behind Phil Vassar's piano right before he went on at Countryfest 2001 (Sean's in the background.  Bethany absent. She was in high school in Florida at the time! )  Ok, that was me -now  let's see if you can find yourselves.  I found 2 crowd shots.

Before we get to that, let me say that It's so amazing to stand on that stage every year and look out into that sea of humanity.   And to stand behind the piano up there is even more of a thrill (even though I really didn't get to play anything - at least THAT year.  It happened later on when none other than Phil Vassar himself let me play with him!

But again, that was me.  Here's YOU!  See if you can pick yourself out of this enormous crowd.

Sean, Phil Vassar, Chris Cagle, Me


I believe Jo Dee Messina was on that bill as well.  I'll have to check the records.  What a year.  And this year promises to be even better. Dierks Bentley and much, much more to come.  Stay tuned for further announcements!
