4 Show-Stopping Moments From Country Jam 2015’s Final Day
Headliners like the Band Perry, Tim McGraw and Keith Urban made 2015 Country Jam a summer festival to remember. And Sunday (June 21), the fourth day of the event, was no exception. Toby Keith arrived in Grand Junction, Colo. to blow fans away — and succeeded. Check out some of the highlights below!
4. Chris Janson Performs "Buy Me a Boat"
Chris Janson's set at Country Jam pulled out lots of hits, including "Truck Yeah," which he co-wrote with LoCash and Danny Myrick. But the one everyone was waiting for came at the end. When Janson sang, "I ain’t rich / But I damn sure wanna be / Working like a dog all day / Ain’t working for me," fans went wild with cheers. After all, it was those same country fans who helped propel "Buy Me a Boat" to the top of iTunes hours after its release.
3. Eli Young Band Prove It's "Always the Love Songs" That Fans Love
Co-written by David Lee Murphy and George Ducas, "Always the Love Songs" was Eli Young Band's first Top 20 hit. 2015 Country Jammers sang along to every word, because, really, it's always the love songs that make you most passionate.
2. Randy Rogers Band Kick Up the Tempo With "Last Last Chance"
When the Randy Rogers Band guys take the stage, you can expect to have a good time, even if you're outside of the Lone Star State. The band's always-solid set revved up the Colorado crowd with songs like "Tonight's Not the Night (For Goodbye)," "Speak of the Devil" and "Kiss Me in the Dark, but one of the standouts of the set was one of the rowdiest songs they played, "Last Last Chance." "I got one foot on the gas, I got one foot in the grave / I'm in the kind of trouble from which I can't be saved," Rogers sang to an equally rowdy Country Jam crowd. With a mix of tender love songs interspersed, it was easy to see why RRB is such a crowd pleaser.
1. Toby Keith Brings Fireworks, Inflatable Red Solo Cups + More
Toby Keith hasn't sold 21 million records worldwide by accident. Fans love themselves some Toby Keith and will pay big bucks for a glimpse of their favorite American singer. While he has some of the biggest hits in the world, his records don't do his live show justice. Keith's portfolio in country is so deep, all he really needs to do is sing. Even so, he brings the entertainment factor way up with inflatable red solo cups, stunning lightwork and even pyrotechnics. His show on Country Jam 2015's final day proved, once again, why the red, white and blue supporter is such an icon in the genre.
