Country Jam 2015: Tim McGraw Headlines Jam-Packed Day 3 [Pictures]
Country Jam 2015 will soon draw to a close, but there's still a full day of country music ahead — and the party shows no signs of slowing down. Day 3 of the festival was a huge one, with headliner Tim McGraw drawing a massive crowd after several other talented artists took the big stage.
The adorable Amanda Watkins kicked off Saturday's (June 20) events in Grand Junction, Colorado. She did her best John Mellencamp impression toward the end of her set, then gave the stage to fellow newcomer Jackson Michelson, who included a few covers in his performance to grab more ears. Michelson paid tribute to his dad's love of soul and his mom's love of country with "Georgia on My Mind."
Everybody's favorite country-rapper Colt Ford followed, and the crowd packed in for the very energetic set. Ford didn't just play his own songs, but also "Dirt Road Anthem," which he wrote, and a pretty fun Eminem cover that the crowd sang along to.
Kacey Musgraves — who'll release a new album next week — was up next, singing hits like "Follow Your Arrow," "Blowin' Smoke" and her latest, "Biscuits," in a sparkly cupcake dress. Her vocals were flawless, and the singer offered a little relaxation before a hyped-up Billy Currington brought sexy back later in the evening. He too played a few covers, including "Uptown Funk" and "Friends in Low Places."
By the time McGraw performed, the crowd was good and ready for their favorite "Indian Outlaw." The country music legend played a lengthy set which included songs from way back in his collection, and it seemed all of the stage of Colorado sang along.
