Spotlight On The 2013 Craven Country Jamboree In Saskatchewan, Canada
Story and photos by Glen R. Forrester

The "Craven Country Jamboree" was held in Saskatchewan, Canada on July 11-14, 2013.

The weekend Hosts were Williams and Ree (Bruce Williams and Terry Ree).  They are so funny together.
 
Starting on Thursday, the kickoff party started off at the beer gardens with Phil Vassar. The beer gardens was packed during Phil's show and he enjoyed the crowd so much that he played for an extra half hour.

On Friday Small Town Pistols ( Amanda and Tyler Wilkinson ) started off The Country Jamboree, they are the Wilkinson but there sound is different now and it sounds great. They sing together with harmony and you can tell they sang together since they were kids. Sawyer Brown what can you say about them, their songs are always happening and the crowd always loves them. In the evening Brantley Gilbert rocked the stage for the young people and he does a great job of that. To end the day Tim McGraw entered the stage and he is the heart of the day. His music and songs everyone knows and the crowd loved the hole concert and sang every song with him.

Saturday rolled in with High Valley on the main stage. Three brothers with high energy had the crowd involved with them. Late afternoon Randy Travis was going to sing but he never made it because of health problems. The Oak Ridge Boys took his spot and they did a great job in Randy's place. Doc Walker a Canadian band opened up for The Dixie Chicks. It was unreal to see the Dixie Chicks back together to sing their hearts out for their Canadian fans.

Sunday came fast and Bill Anderson awarded songwriter and singer. He sang a lot of old classics songs which people loved. Willie Robertson from a duck TV show talked to us about his family and there business, he was very interesting.  Late afternoon Gloriana went on stage, they are two brothers and Rachel Reinert to make the group and they performed together well. Chad Brownlee a Kelowna BC. man came on after Gloriana. He is a song writer, singer and he is really good. The second last performer was Scotty McCreery. An American Idol's youngest male winner at age 17. I can see why he won, his voice is really great and people loved him. To end the Country Jamboree was Kenny Chesney. The grounds was very full of fans and he put on an great  performance. He made the Jamboree to be one of the best ever.

I want to thank everyone backstage for making this article and pictures possible.
