Country act Big & Rich played to a full house at 100.7 The Wolf’s Hometown Throwdown 2015 last Sunday at Cheney Stadium.  Their massive hit “Save a Horse (Ride a Cowboy)” was the highlight of the night. SMI contributing photographer Matthew Lamb was also on hand for coverage of the duo Maddie & Tae, who performed their #1 Hit “Girl in a Country Song” to a lively audience.

The fun started at 1:00 p.m. and lasted well into the evening, with ten scheduled bands. Acts performing at the Hometown Throwdown besides the headliners included Jana Kramer, Craig Campbell, The Swon Brothers, The Cadillac Three, Mickey Guyton, Mo Pitney, Aaron Crawford, and Jackson Michelson.

100.7 The Wolf is a proud supporter of the “guys (and gals) in blue” as well as the many servicemen and women in attendance, including their families.  Fitz of the Fitz in the Morning radio show on the Wolf took a moment to say a special thank you to them just prior to Big & Rich taking the stage. Take a look at the image gallery below to get a sense of what it was all about.


Christine Mitchell has been poring over album liner notes pretty much since she acquired the skill of reading, and figured out the basic structure of rock songs at an early age. Whether it’s the needle popping into the first groove of the record, the beeps that signal the beginning (or end) of a cassette tape, or digital numbers ticking off the seconds from zero, music brings Christine happiness, ponderous thought, opportunities for almost scientific study, and sometimes a few tears. When she started attending live shows two decades ago, a whole new piece of the puzzle clicked in and she has been hooked ever since.
