Country classic Alabama and recent Academy of Country Music award winner Jason Aldean closed out Stagecoach day one with back-to-back sets.
In the first celebrity cameo of the festival, pop superstar Kelly Clarkson joined Aldean onstage for their award-winning single “Don’t You Wanna Stay.”
(Though was it a real cameo? Verdict is out. The crowd sure responded like it, but reaction later on Twitter was mixed. Some say it was a pre-recorded video. Some say she was up on stage. I was too far back to say for sure, though I thought it was really her!)
Either way, the 50,000-plus fans at Stagecoach definitely want to stay a little while.
“You guys know how to party!” Aldean said in his third Stagecoach appearance.
If the Day One artists are anything to go by, we have plenty of cover songs, debut singles and crowd sing-alongs In store the next two days!
