Florida Georgia Line returns to Erie, PA to a packed Erie Insurance Arena on the Dig Your Root Tour.
Kicking the night off was Kane Brown. Brown, found through YouTube and signed to Sony, began the evening with a song from his debut album Chapter 1 called “Ain’t No Stopping Us Now.” The packed arena had to feel much different from Brown’s usual bar shows. Brown was only able to fit five songs in his set including recent single “Thunder In The Rain” and fan favorite “Use To Love You Sober.”
Following Kane Brown was a much more rock-country band, The Cadillac Three. Lead guitarist and vocalist Jaren Johnston has the perfect voice for country music. His twangy sound matched perfectly with his guitar skills. Their setlist featured songs from most recent album Bury Me in My Boots including “White Lightning” and “The South.”
Solo artist Cole Swindell was next. Swindell, in many opinions, should be headlining this tour, but fans weren’t complaining because having Florida Georgia Line in the same lineup is impressive. As Swindell’s popularity continues to grow, it’s hard not to recognize his music. The crowd sang along and marveled at the accompanying light show. The ladies in the crowd sang their hearts out when Swindell began to sing “Let Me See Ya Girl” and ended his set “Aint Worth The Whisky.”
The curtain went up, lights went down, and fans chanted for Florida Georgia Line. Once the curtain dropped, the roars reached a new level. They kicked off the set with “This Is How We Roll” followed by pyrotechnics. Lead vocalists Tyler Hubbard’s and Brian Kelley’s vocals complimented each other well for this live show. The two singers had a great time, high-fiving and living it up on stage.
One of the biggest moments of the night was FGL performing on a stage amidst the crowd. With a bonfire lit, the band played some acoustic songs giving seated and box fans a closer view.
As the set came to a close, everyone knew what song was next: “Cruise.” With no better way to end the night, the band kept all fans in the arena for another “Cruise” encore. With a lineup like this, it’s easy to say it’s a price-worthy tour.
