PHOTOS: Brent Cobb, Red Clay Strays, and Turnpike Troubadours Rock Macon

Three great acts, two-stepping everywhere, and one blackout due to blown amps… Macon, Georgia, have you fully recovered from this past weekend’s epic show with the Turnpike Troubadours?!

We haven’t really either!

On an evening with perfect weather, nearly 8,000 fans piled into the new Atrium Health Amphitheater to dance and sing along to three of Americana and country music’s most in-demand and successful acts currently in the game: Georgia’s own Brent Cobb, The Red Clay Strays, and fan-favorites the Turnpike Troubadours.

Photos, videos, and great recollections of the evening’s fun flooded social media pages this morning, proving that Macon is a live music town and that there’s not much greater that putting on your boots and getting back to your roots.

That’s exactly what it felt like for the Grammy-nominated Cobb.

Let me tell ya’ll about this new little venue down here in Macon, GA… Atrium Health Amphitheater is one of the cherries on top of all the little things The Creek 100.9 FM, The Capitol Theatre, Capricorn Sound Studios and Museum, The Otis Redding Foundation, and so many others have been doing the last few years. I’ll be honest, it’s nothing new down there. At least not in the scope of that town’s musical history. It’s always been a special burning light and thank goodness for these folks who are willing to carry the torch. Had a blast opening for my kinfolk via music Red Clay Strays & The Turnpike Troubadours Saturday night. Thanks more than I can say to fans down there for showing up. Had the biggest merch night I’ve ever had. I mean we was slangin some T-shirts! Ha! Thanks very much. It’s working and it’s because of y’all. Thank you.
