Little Big Town
Hightlights for Friday included Capitol Records Nashville's sponsored luncheon with exceptional performances by both Darius Rucker and Little Big Town. Little Big Town did a bang up job performing "Lost," "Novacaine" and their first hit single "Boonedocks."

Capitol Records Nashville artist Darius Rucker blew the audience away performing his singles "Don't think I Don't Think About it" and "It won't be like this for Long" - both No.1's for multiple weeks from his debut CD, "Learn To Live." He also performed a heartwrenching rendition of the song, "Let Her Cry" from his Hootie & the Blowfish days. The man had me crying - enough said.

Later in the day, Kix Brooks interviewed Barbara Mandrell during Life of a Legend. Mandrell shared special stories from her life that probably aren't in any book. She spoke about being asked to go on tour with Patsy Cline; when she was probably a teenager at the time. Patsy liked the way Barbara did her hair once, so each night before a show, Barbara would do Patsy's hair. It was quite an amazing and fun interview. Kix asked her if she ever had any regrets when she decided to stop singing. She said no, she prayed and got her answer and knew it was time. No regrets. Despite her father passing away the night before, Barbara Mandrell still came down to CRS to do the interview with Kix Brooks. What a truly amazing woman she is; really enjoyed hearing her stories. Barbara Mandrell was also recently inducted in the Country Hall of Music.

Later that night was the annual New Faces Show. The New Faces show was quite a treat this year.

Zac Brown Band
The Zac Brown Band fired up the crowd with their hit songs "Whatever it Is" and "Chicken Fried" which received standing ovations.

With self assurance, charm and good looks on his side, Chuck Wicks won the audience over performing "All I Ever Wanted" his major hit single "Stealing Cinderella" and introduced his latest single, "Man of the House" which I really liked a lot.

One of my favorite new artists Kellie Pickler strutted her stuff with her red hot single "Red High Heels making her way into the audience who gave her a standing ovation as they cheered her on.

A hard act to follow, James Otto stirred things up with his band singing, "These Are the Gold Old Days." With that, the band left the stage and Otto baring his soul with guitar and vocal only singing "Damn Right." I was amazed at the rawness of it and the audience loved it clapping before he even finished. Otto closed with his # 1 single "Just Got Started Loving You." A great performance by James Otto!

Lady Antebellum
It doesn't get much better than that but Lady Antebellum really rocked the house opening with "Looking for a Good Time", got peopl headbanging to a bit of AC/DC's "You Shook Me All Night Long", a bit of "Run to You" and finished the evening off with their awesome #1 single, "Love Doesn't Live Here Anymore." I think I died and went to heaven after hearing them perform that song. All I can say is God Bless the songwriters and artists who bring us these wonderful, amazing Country songs and God Bless Country Radio for playing them! And God Bless my editor Eric De Fontennay for taking the time to edit this very long article! If you have a chance to attend CRS -41 with Taylor Swift, I would highly recommend it!
