I love doing this every year —taking my handy dandy little Nikon Coolpix and creating a panorama photo from the Countryfest stage. This shot is just a piece of it. Click to see the rest! It's a view like no other.

Well, another incredible year for WGNA. This is our 21st Countryfest. I'm proud to say that I've been to every one (my ears are still ringing as we speak).

This one featured Dierks Bentley, Easton Corbin, A Thousand Horses, Cadillac Three and local favorite, Chelsea Cavanaugh.

They all were great, but I have to really spotlight Dierks. I don't think I've seen a better live performer than him in a very long time. He really knows how to work the crowd. He's just a ton of fun to watch (I'm sure the women in the audience can attest to that)!

But without further adieu, here's my shot from the stage. I'm also including a few others.
