    As a tram volunteer "Concert Night" usually means we get off work early because they pull the rigs off the streets due to the invasion of non-aviation types crowding the roads.. I don't much follow modern music acts or country and western stuff but I wonder out loud is there exists a group or single entertainer that wouldn't be objectionable to some group of convention attendees? Seems like C/W is pretty popular in that area of Wisconsin so EAA planners picked entertainers within their parameters and budget. No harm, no foul. Thems what likes it will stay and enjoy, thems what don't...won't. I expect huge crowds regardless.

    Probably not—you are never going to please everyone as this thread illustrates. They most likely have to stick to “least objectionable” acts within the budget and that’s always going to be a compromise, especially since the concert is free. Retread Rock acts seem to be the goto genre. This year’s Country acts (nobody use the term Country & Western anymore) is only the 2nd one that I can recall over the past 15 years or so.

    Depends on which route - If security closes off the main road thru the exhibits, anything north of there would be trapped so they get pulled. If my aging memory serves - lol - or am I thinking about a special air show event? I dunno. I just want July to get here already, I wanna see the airplanes!

    There is a big country music festival going on in Oshkosh

    One would think Wisconsin C/W music fans would get there fix and be looking for a change, by the time AirVenture Shows up.
    A C/W music smorgasbord this year in Oshkosh.
    I guess if you can't beat'em might as well join'em

    No thanks, not me, but I will always defend your right to see and listen to as much C&W as you can stand.

    I agree...I like the old Western music...but not this...Anyway, I'm glad the people that attend Oshkosh are better about respect in the campgrounds than those who attended the "music" event across the road....remember the way the trashed the campgrounds and facilities with litter and beer bottles.

    This is what they're calling "New Country" these days. Merle Haggard would probably roll in his grave if they tried calling this "Country". He'd probably come back to life to play a concert and show everyone the real deal if anyone called it "Country & Western".
