I've had the honor of attending every WGNA Countfryfest since it's debut in 1994 with Travis Tritt and Joe Diffie.  As we approach Countryfest 2012 with Eric Church and Joe Nichols, I thought it would be fun to list my Top 10 favorite Countryfest acts of all-time.

10. Faith Hill- 1999

9. Miranda Lambert- 2005/2011 (pictured above with Scott Blaine and Kevin Richards in the rain at Saratoga Race Course)

8. Brooks and Dunn- 1996

7. Martina McBride- 2000

6. Charlie Daniels Band- 2003

5. Travis Tritt- 1994/2004

4. Kenny Chesney- 2000

3. Keith Urban- 2004

2. Blake Shelton- 2006/2010
