Little Big Tow, Drake White & The Big Fire and Maren Morris “Crush” It At The St Augustine Amphitheatre

Little Big Town 2015 (97) (800x600)

Little Big Town Crush St Augustine

The cool fall air drifted through the St Augustine Amphitheatre as a sold out crowd enjoyed some “sweet” country music. Headliner act, Little Big Town with opening acts, Drake White & The Big Fire and new comer, Maren Morris had the audience on their feet most of the evening singing and dancing along to the tunes.

In contrast to the big screens, strobe lights and smoke Little Big Town incorporated into their act, Drake White & The Big Fire and singer/songwriter Maren Morris kept their production to a minimum. There were no video screens or strobe lights, just the house lights and some good old country music. That’s not to say the opening acts were lacking in any way. The fans were able to focus on the music and that focus was richly rewarded by some truly talented musicians.
