Watershed Festival at The Gorge was another huge success for the faithful from all over the Western United States and Western Canada. The festival sold out again, with Toby Keith, Kip Moore, Blackberry Smoke and the rest, who rocked the house for 3 days. The crowd ate it up, and fans flooded Central Washington to see some of the biggest stars in country music. They were not disappointed.
There were more American flags and American flag outfits than I had seen in a very long time. It has to be said that country music fans are by definition a patriotic bunch and they are not shy about it. Speaking with the crowd, they expressed loudly their approval of the show and they all said that it was one of the best shows they had ever seen.
