Darius Rucker performed to a sold out crowd at Musikfest.

Darius Rucker’s performance at Musikfest was an incredible show for truly everyone, from country lovers to the ‘haters.’ I’ve never been the biggest country fan, but Darius Rucker changed that for me – something I never thought I’d say. Admittedly, I only knew his hit “Wagon Wheel,” but after the concert I raced home to download more of his music.

Reba covers the hits and more in her main stage performance.

Even the weather smiled on Tuesday night’s headline Musikfest concert. You didn’t have to be a devoted country music fan to thoroughly enjoy Reba’s performance at the Sands Steel Stage. Reba sang beautifully from her wide portfolio of songs spanning several decades, including country and rock-and-roll selections composed by her and others. Her strong, melodic voice has done nothing but improve over the years. She had abundant and infectious positive energy; she really seemed to be having fun on stage.

Reba’s songs tell stories of love and heartbreak, of celebration and life. Selections included, “Whoever’s in New England,” “Going Out Like That,” “Because of You,” (composed by now-daughter-in-law Kelly Clarkson),” “Is There Life Out There,” “The Night the Lights Went Out in Georgia” (1973 #1 hit composed by Vicki Lawrence), and “I’m a Survivor.” Her conversations with the audience were genuine and endearing; she came across as a sweet southern friend who just happened to have a spectacular voice.
