This Is It 


Harrisburg NC is the best place in the world to live. Scotty McCreery concert two miles from my doorstep. World’s largest bounce house for the kids and a drone show. Small town feel with access to big city living. Harrisburg is home.

Sorry for the late update, it's been a crazy weekend!  Melissa, Laura, and I certainly enjoyed our time together at the concert.   The last time we got together was in  December for Laura's 50th birthday and it didn't involve Scotty!  Shock!


Harrisburg is a very nice town and they have done lots of nice things for their citizens and Scotty's free concert was at the top of the list.  We got there shortly after 2 because we weren't sure how many people would get their early to put out their chairs.  Part of the area (front and center in front of stage) was reserved for Harrisburg residents, but at 5 pm they took down the fencing and we were able to move our chairs to front and center!!   By the time the show started, the place was packed.  There were people way up on the hill.  I don't know how many were there.


We had a good time talking with Mike and petting Rosie.  We felt very lucky that Scotty, Gabi, Avery, and Moose came over.  That was basically because Moose wanted to see Rosie!!  We talked to Scotty and Gabi for a few minutes and oohed and awed over Avery.  Such a cutie pie!


They had excellent video of the concert behind Scotty (maybe that is what you saw) and he was on fire.  He is so much fun to watch perform in NC, it means so much to him.  He played songs we hadn't heard in awhile and that was a blast.  We had meet and greets and it was good to have the opportunity to do that again. 


Laura and Melissa will see him in Surf City and Nov 4th and I will see him on Nov 30th, here in Roanoke.

Thanks so much, Amanda.  Glad to hear the place was packed.


  (A man was nice enough to share a livestream of the whole show....he had a camera on a tripod very close to the stage.)
