Dylan Scott shared his dream with Keg’s
With Spring temps in the air – Country music fans filed into the parking lot at Kegs Canal Side waiting for the doors to open. Some fans had been waiting as long as 2 hours to see Small Town Shade, Drew Baldridge and Dylan Scott. But, in true fashion they killed time by playing their favorite country music and tipping back a few cold beers. Some were even seen making sandwiches – it was Country style at its finest right here in CNY. Let’s not forget the American Flag waving from a group of fans huddled up near the back of a pick-up truck along with USA chants.
Back II Back Entertainment and their team know how to please their fans because those who walk through the doors at Kegs Canal Side never leave disappointed. Kegs is one of the well-known venues in the area for serving mainly Country concerts and they aim to please. The night kicked off with Small Town Shade with the trio getting the crowd warmed up which is no surprise – these guys knew just what to play to get the fans involved. Singing along and screaming out names of songs they wanted to hear. Of course the band didn’t disappoint, Nick their lead singer is all about playing to the crowd. Small Town Shade covers “mash up’s” of Country covers and some originals. What else could any music fan hope for? A solid 4 hours of nonstop music. With a standing room only; fans got as close as they could get to the stage waiting for the main attraction to take center stage.
Drew Baldridge has so much energy on stage – if you blinked he was in a different spot. Baldridge was a sure crowd pleaser with fans even saying he looked real similar to Luke Bryan. The ladies in the crowd fell in love with his dance moves and how he just reached out to you to get you involved. In addition to his own songs, he did a wide range of covers from Johnny Cash’s “Folsom Prison Blues” to Trace Adkin’s “Honky Tonk Badonkadonk” which he transitioned into Sir Mix-A-Lot’s “Baby Got Back.” Baldridge is quite the showman. And, let’s not forget how Drew can shake his hips during his entire set like he was out to win a dance contest. Drew stayed around after his set was over to meet fans and sign some autographs.
Dylan Scott made his way to the stage to a crowd who was already fired up from the performance “Drew” just gave them. Dylan was more laid back and took his time to tell a few stories and reach into the hearts of the fans with some tunes that were more subtle. Recently married he told his fans how he and his wife got together while in school. She was 16 he was 15, so he got to sit in the passenger seat while they drove around. But as time went on Dylan became interested in music and eventually moved to Nashville and left his girlfriend in Louisiana this went on for about 6 yrs. He says long distance relationships work if you want it to. As the night went on, Scott had the crowd in the palm of his hand as he displayed his passion and love for music. Dylan even did a solo of “When You Say Nothing At All,” the original by Keith Whitley which gave his band a moment to take a brief break. And, being a well-known song for many years fans didn’t hesitate to sing along. When the band returned the energy was turned up and ready to go. Scott moved around the stage with ease to interact with the crowd. The popular song “I Can’t Feel My Face,” was an automatic crowd favorite. Scott’s genuine personality shining through as he repeatedly thanked the crowd for supporting his music and allowing him to live out his dreams through his work as a touring singer/songwriter. He even told the crowd the last time he was at Keg’s the crowd was much smaller, he didn’t know what to expect this time. A true talent and Scott genuinely appreciated his fans coming out to spend their hard earned money to see him. If you missed this concert you sure did miss a good one!
