Saturday night at Country Fest, I witnessed one of the greatest live performances ever!

Gary Allan was on stage when it started to rain. Suddenly the rain came down hard. Harder than any other rain, at least in recent memory.

Gary had been singing under the protective cover of the overhang on the stage when suddenly he came out on the ramp near the crowd. The highlight was playing Songs About Rain in the rain. The crowd went CRAZY!

Unfortunately after about 10 minutes lightning started to appear, effectively kicking him off the stage. But it's a Country Fest nobody will EVER forget!
