It was a fun night of contemporary country music at the Xfinity Center on Friday, as Chris Young, Chris Janson, and Dylan Scott took the stage in Mansfield, MA. Young, a multi-time Country Music Award winner headlined and played before a large crowd, setting the stage for a new breed of country music.
As part of Young’s “Raised On Country” tour, the trio were high-energy, keeping fans on their feet for the duration. Storytelling and audience engagement was abundant, intertwined with an explosive infusion of great music.
Although not traditionally a fan of the “new” country music, this was a most entertaining evening that may have converted me. The music was solid, the crowd was into it, and the aura of the venue was fantastic.
What’s Up Rhode Island was there to capture a great night of new country music. See the slideshow below for photos.
