On Saturday night, June 30, 2012, I had the pleasure of being at The Barrel Saloon Rock & Roll Country Bar in Albany. We gave away a pair of GNA Countryfest 2012 tickets, along with meet and greet passes for Thompson Square.

It was a very nice night to be outside in the patio of The Barrel Saloon. Inside, there was some great live music by the Chris Dukes Band. The Coors Light Girls were mingling amongst all the happy people at the party.

One of the cool things that was going on was watching people ride the mechanical bull. Some of our friends wanted me to ride, but I declined. If I get I fall off (which I probably would) I wouldn’t be able to get back up. I’ll leave any bull riding to GNA's Levack. He’s had bull riding experience.

Just a little quick side note - The Barrel Saloon will be having a shuttle for people, to go to and return from Countryfest 2012.

I took pictures of many of the people that were having a great time.

I can't believe that Countryfest 2012 is almost here. Saturday July 7.
