Getting ready to Rock

by Nichole Hannahs on August 20, 2010

It took a quick turnaround at the Muskingum County Fairgrounds to get ready for Friday’s Lady Antebellum show.

Thursday night the Demo Derby ran the fair but as soon as it ended fair board members and staff were already setting up for the concert.

"Oh my this is so exciting," said Fair Board President Darrel Cubbison. "And I keep telling the board this is going to be the largest crowd in 164 years and there is no doubt about it."

And the crowd at the Muskingum County Fair is beyond excited and three hours before the show were starting to fill their seats at the grandstand.

"I don’t know how they got them but it’s pretty cool," exclaimed Antebellum fan Nicole Pryor. "I don’t know where my seat is so I’m hoping it’s pretty good."

And for Cubbisson it won’t be long after Friday’s show that he’ll be thinking about next year’s big act.

"We’ll start on it right away like we did last year. In the last two years we’ve had the Beach Boys and Lady Antebellum," said Pryor. "So we’ll get someone in here they’ll want to see."

And as a special treat Cubbison said there’s an up and coming opening act for this year’s show, which he said will please the audience and give those that may still be parking more time to take their seats. The Lady Antebellum show is sold out.
