Musikfest is back! After the lost year that was 2020, Musikfest is back in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania! Fans were clamoring to see the megastar Sam Hunt with special guest Jackie Lee tonight to a sold out crowd at the Wind Creek Event Center in Bethlehem.
Jackie Lee came out with the energy to warm up the crowd. It has to be a challenge to open for someone like Sam Hunt, but he took the challenge head on, got people to dancing like it was second nature to him. The crowd thoroughly enjoyed songs such as “Long Year”, “Getting Over You” and “Breakfast.” It was a lovely mix of country, a bit of soul and a bit of classic rock. I foresee Jackie Lee being a full-on crossover sensation in the country music world. Sam Hunt was ready to take the stage!
A person can tell that things are back to a relative normal when there were three fights in the crowd. I never thought I would type the words “fighting” and “Sam Hunt concert” in the same sentence, but here I am. Sam Hunt brought his unique flavor of music to the sold-out Bethlehem audience on this hot summer night. The cold beer was flowing, the ladies were screaming and shaking their hips and the guys watched on in a combination of “whoa, this dude is talented” with some jealousy that Sam Hunt was getting all the attention, but if you heard the pipes on that man, you immediately understood. Songs such as “Leave The Night On” and “House Party” immediately set the mood for the evening. Crowd sang along even louder when Sam Hunt broke into his cover of “Cop Car” by Keith Urban. Sam was excellent as he engaged the crowd and was very entertaining throughout the night. After an hour plus set, he closed it with “Body Like A Back Road.”
