Shane Wooten Band Plays for 10,000
Williston, FL (July 3rd, 2010) — Shane Wooten Band performed at the Independence Celebration for more than 10,000 people. Residents from all over Levy, Marion and Alachua counties attended the event which featured a thundering fireworks show.
Event planners expected over 17,000 attendees this year. The weather however discouraged many. Almost three inches of rain fell, but the crowd only grew larger. Families shared umbrellas or huddled under vendor canopies. When the rain let up, the air was cool and refreshing.
We spoke to several people. Many said this was their first time attending the event. When asked why they came this year, they responded, “We came to see Shane Wooten!”
And see him they did. The band opened with their new single “Running with a Redneck Crowd,” recently recorded with the Bellamy Brothers. Wooten exploded on to the stage in time for the first line. Later, they played the song from their music video “Shovelin’ Sunshine.” The performance concluded with their newly written “Living a Country Song.”
