In Your Hands: Oshkosh, WI June 21

Thu, Jun 21, 2012 at 10:35 PM

Oh, Oshkosh – though it was already your third night at the Country USA Music Fest, it felt like you were partying like the first! We saw everything from penniless cowgirls to Kristian in a pink tank top. Really though, what do they feed you in Wisconsin?

The night began with special sets from a few of our friends. We owe a huge thanks to Todd Sansom, Jason Thomas, Jerrod Niemann, and Phil Vassar who came out and helped us put on the show and who also got y'all insanely fired up before we even came on!

Except, we're not exactly sure who was rowdier… Was it you all or was it Jennifer and Kristian? At one point Kristian took off like a bullet through the crowd, guitar held high above his head, with Jennifer egging him on chanting, "keep on going until you bring me back some cheese curds!" Jennifer was clearly fascinated with the food in Oshkosh as she told Abbey, 15, who helped them sing "Everyday America", "Wow they grow them tall in the midwest! It's because she's corn-fed!"

The lights from the ferris wheels and festival lights helped illuminate your faces, and the screams from everyone riding them throughout the night kept spirits higher than ever. Jennifer mentioned backstage how many people may, "lose their cookies, but still make room for a Sugarland show". For those of you who did, we're so very glad you still came!

One of the most hilarious moments happened when Kristian donned a pink tank top thrown on stage that read, "Oshkosh, a quiet little drinking town with a flying problem". While showing off his muscles for the crowd, Jennifer replied saying "I don't think they are like that because they are not quiet!"

All laughs and jokes aside, last night was still filled with special and intimate moments between Jennifer, Kristian, and the audience. Jennifer connected with a few members standing in front and sang to them as if it was only the two of them in a crowd of people. This closeness was shared between audience members as well as they grabbed ahold of each other and swayed back and forth during "Stay".

The night ended on another high note as they ramped up "Find the Beat Again" and everyone danced together, clapped together, and sang at the top of their lungs together. Jennifer nudged the crowd one more time and laughed saying, "Thank you for the day of good music. How are all of the partying people doing in the back? I know you're partying because you're the people closest to the beer stands!"

If that's not enough to make you want to see a show in Oshkosh, we're not sure what to tell you! Thanks again Oshkosh, and enjoy your last two days of complete country music fever!

    What do they feed people in Wisconsin?Why CHEESE!....of course!CHEESE is one of Jennifer's favorite foods.I am sure she did not contain herself when eating cheese in Wisconsin!For future reference,use the "excuse" that the baby needs it.(It works every time!)I love that Phil Vassar is a great person and a fantastic entertainer!Jennifer and Kristian were getting ROWDY?WHAT?I am sooooo shocked by this behavior!(NOT REALLY!)I think rowdiness is to be expected by those two.(Don't you?)Jennifer is going to fascinated with food until November because she is pregnant!I can't wait to here what weird combinations of food she has cravings for due to her "condition!"One of my favorite lines from a Sugarland song is "The lights on the tree in the eyes of our children are the prettiest I've ever seen!"This has new meaning now for Jennifer and Justin!I thought of this when I read the lights from the ferris wheels..... in the above description.(shows you how my brain works)I can say that Kristian looks good in anything!This is a statement of fact!(just ask his wife)Getting personal with the fans is a outstanding idea.I am glad you thought of it!Please keep it going with as many fans as possible.(everybody wins!)There ain't no party like a SUGARLAND party......with or without beer!!!The reason why I read this website everyday is you never know what is going to happen next!(and it all about Sugarland!)Please stay tuned or you will miss it!.....LOVE....John
