Country music star Luke Bryan croons to the crowd.

Country music star Luke Bryan croons to the crowd.

“Where my hillbillies at?” called country music star Luke Bryan from the main stage at the Crawford County fairgrounds Tuesday night.

This CMT sensation seemed to have the crowd dancing and laughing along—even before the show started. People were decked to their country nines, wearing cowboy hats and boots, or their own personal creations.

Angela Zorn came dressed in her own custom designed black t-shirt, with Easton Corbin and Luke Bryan’s names on the front and back. A Luke Bryan fan for two years, the 17-year-old from Meadville has had tickets since May, and was celebrating her birthday with her mom.

“Do I,” said Zorn, is her favorite Bryan song, “because it’s the first one I liked.”

Fans of Luke Bryan hold a sign, "Sorority Girls Shake it for Luke."

Before the show, Bryan signed autographs and took photos at a meet and greet. Emily Nottingham of Titusville was thrilled to be at the concert—and meet Bryan.

17-year-olds Emily Notthingham and Brianne Come, Titusville, were thrilled to be at Bryan’s concert. Brianne, however, couldn’t meet the signer in person.

“She couldn’t be there because of soccer practice, so I brought two CDs and he signed them both for us,” Emily said, carrying her signed Luke Bryan swag. “It was really nice.”

Before Bryan bounced on stage, country singer Easton Corbin opened the show, playing crowd favorites like “A Little More Country Than That” and “Roll with It.” Watch Corbin sing “A Little More Country Than That” in our video player.

7,300 seats sold for the concert, and many lined the front row to sing along while taking pictures and video.

Bryan encouraged the audience to sing and dance along during the performance. During the song “Drunk On You,” Bryan instructed the crowd to fist pump while singing the lyrics “boom, boom” of the chorus. See that video in our player.

Bryan’s biggest hit, “Country Girl (Shake It for Me),” didn’t disappoint either, and Bryan encouraged a little battle of the sexes, seeing who could sing the chorus louder. See Bryan shaking his own thing on stage in our video player.

Tomorrow, Bryan heads to Glen Allen, VA, to play the Innsbrook Pavilion. His third and most recent album, “Tailgates & Tanlines,” debuted at number one on Top Country Albums list.

Check the player on GoCrawfordCounty.com for video of Corbin and Bryan, and our photo galleries for shots from the concert. Were you there? Post your pictures directly to our community photo album. Just click “Submit photos” on the right bar of the main page.

Tobi Lee of Mustang Sally brought a leery, but willing participant up on stage to practice his cowboy skills.

Tobi Lee of Mustang Sally brought a leery, but willing participant up on stage to practice his cowboy skills.

“I didn’t know the cameraman was going to get so close!” yells Tobi Lee, lead singer of Mustang Sally. “Thank God I wore underwear!”

The sassy, classy ladies of the country rock band Mustang Sally kept the crowd rocking at last night’s Roar on the Shore concert while Lee pulled bawdy zingers in between songs.

“They send a police officer over,” said Lee after referring to her joke of running through the streets of Erie naked, “but he’s like the size of Harry Potter.”

Despite a few technical difficulties, the show kept the audience entertained and singing along. Not five minutes into the act, Lee broke the heel on her white, knee-high boot, but made a nice recovery, “showing off the band” while she patched up her boot backstage.

Later when Lee experienced difficulties with her lavalier mic, violinist Sarah Wilfong took the main stage with high-powered fiddling.

Check out the photos in our gallery–I love Wilfong’s reaction to Lee’s broken boot.

Mustang Sally rounded out the show with classic cover songs, encouraging the crowds to sing along. See a clip of Erie singing classic Journey hit “Don’t Stop Believin’” and watch Lee playfully tease the policeman, “Mustang Sally.”
