In Your Hands: Brownsville, OR August 17

Sat, Aug 18, 2012 at 7:40 AM

Last night turned out just how we like it, Brownsville, and we only have YOU to thank! The hills were green, the festival was fun, and everyone gave it their absolute all. Thanks for showing us just how Oregon likes to party!


We knew it would be a fun show as soon as all 15,000 of you walked into the arena, but we didn't know it would be that fun! Front row, we have to call you out for being absolutely nuts. This may have been the first time we've seen an entire row pop, lock, and dropping it, and it was awesome!


Jennifer did have to give the rest of you a shout out by saying, "How are you all doing in the wayyy back?" The response to this was hands in the air and twirling on the ground. Couldn't have asked for a better answer!


We had some good jokes with all of you last night in addition to the dancing. Jennifer said at one point, "Willamette is known for its Pinot Noir. I am kinda in a bit of a dry spell, but we will have to come back!" And come back we will do!


Last night we decided to whip out some 80's "Pour Some Sugar On Me", and when Kristian had his guitar solo at the end he walked down the light-up catwalk. You all went crazy, and Kristian and Jennifer went wild! Another great song played last night was "Come On Get Higher". This time Jennifer was given the chance for a guitar solo, and an acoustic one at that. It was a special moment for everyone.


We saw some more dancing by everyone during "Already Gone", but this time it was slow dancing. Jennifer explained the meaning of the song before it even started which probably got you all on your feet.


Thanks again, Brownsville, for showing us such a great time! As Jennifer said to you last night, "We are doing this for the sexy people!" We're already planning our next visit, so see you soon!


Check out last night's set list below:

    I'm from France and I had the chance to came to Oregon last summer in a host family. For the last night I spent in their home, they had the wonderful idea to drove me to Brownsville cause they love you. It was and it's still one of the best moment I had in United States. I want to thank them for made me discover your fantastic band and also thank you Sugarland for your beautiful songs. Since I came back to France I never stopped listen to your songs!!

    AMAZING! My two girlfriends, Erin and Cassie, and I enjoyed your performance so much - it was incredible! We are three very lucky girls who missed Canaan Smith's Meet and Greet but you have an amazing merch crew who called Canaan during his dinner and asked if he would come meet the three of us and he agreed! When we were taken behind the gate to meet Canaan we also got a special surprise from Kristian as he was eating his dinner - "THANKS KRISTIAN" we said all together after chatting and receiving pictures and autographs from Canaan. We can't stop talking about how lucky we are! We wanted to make a sign that said "We've met half of Sugarland, now how about the other half Jennifer?" Please tell the lady and gentleman running your merch table that they made our 6.5 hour drive to Brownsville that morning worth every minute - Cannot thank you enough! Please, please come back soon (with your baby too), thank you again! - Kaitlin
