Riders at Bonnaroo "Wonderful and Hilarious"

Jun 11 | Posted by: Riders In The Sky

A perfect June night, an audience ready to dance, sing, and cheer, the Grand Ole Opry making an extremely rare road appearance with a cast of legends, current hitmakers, and up and coming whippersnappers…what was not to like?

We found out the huge audience of mud-caked millennials knew the chorus to “Ghost Riders” which they sang along with at top volume. We found out they really liked songs from Toy Story 2, which they were raised on. And they really really really liked Too Slim’s "Eminem rap," apparently still cheesed at the legendary rapper for his Saturday night concert featuring pre-recorded gunshots which had folks freaking and diving for cover.

As the cast assembled for a sing-along finale---Old Crow Medicine Show, Bobby Bare, Joshua HedleyMaggie RoseNikki LaneThe Del McCoury Band, the Opry Square Dancers---the circle remained unbroken.

“I always knew Bonnaroo would work for us,” said a sweat-soaked Too Slim after the show. “I didn’t know it would be this wonderful and hilarious."
