It’s been a couple of weeks now but we’re still going country strong after the Carolina Country Music Festival.


With rocking headlining performances from Keith Urban, Tim McGraw and Florida Georgia Line, there were many good times to be had.

Here are our top 10 moments from the musical weekend in Myrtle Beach.

#10 – Kelsea Ballerina getting choked up by the size of the crowd


We first saw Kelsea play a Wounded Warriors event in 2014 that was featured in the season two finale of Southern Charm. Glad to see her continuing to climb the charts.

#9 – Kelsea Ballerini’s pop medley


Speaking of Kelsea, this medley of early 2000’s pop music was way fun. Who doesn’t love a little Brit Brit, N’SYNC and BSB?


#8 – Joe Nichols’ country version of Baby Got Back


My anaconda do want some of this classic performed in any style.

#7 – Stubb’s BBQ


If you follow ATXgossip, you know we love anything and everything connected to Austin, TX. So, the presence of Stubb’s on site handing out samples was a sight for sore eyes.

#6 – Chase Rice’s drummer


We watched Jeremy Roberson rock with Carolina based band Villanova back in the day and we couldn’t be happier to see him on this big stage.


#5 – Chase Rice singing to a cancer survivor


Could Chase Rice be any sweeter? We think not.


#4 – Jake Owen’s shorts


God bless America.

#3 – Tim McGraw’s shirt


Meet the new poster boy for Grand Strand tourist traps.

#2 – Keith Urban owning the guitar


Video proof.

#1 – Live Like You Were Dying


The final performance of Saturday night was epic. And we don’t use that term loosely.
And with that, Carolina Country Music Festival 2017 can’t come soon enough!
