If Scranton didn’t get enough country music when Dierks Bentley came to town in June or Luke Bryan played in July, local radio station Froggy 101 was sure to make up for it with this year’s Froggy Fest at The Pavilion at Montage Mountain on Sunday, Aug. 21 with Brantley Gilbert, Justin Moore, and Colt Ford.
Rain throughout the evening didn’t dampen the spirit of the audience and certainly didn’t stop the “bad boy” of country from taking the stage and entertaining with No. 1 hits like “Country Must Be Country Wide,” “You Don’t Know Her Like I Do,” “Bottoms Up,” and “One Hell of An Amen.”
“This is why I do this, to take it to the people,” Gilbert said in advance of his national tour. “I want to rock hard and tell the truth and see it in their eyes. My fans know what I’m talking about, and they come for that reason. It’s not for everybody, but it’s its own kind of country.”
