    Carrie Underwood brings flair to Jones County Fair


    Posted: Saturday, July 23, 2016 9:47 am Carrie Underwood brings flair to Jones County Fair BY MADDIE GEHLING maddie.gehling@thmedia.com Telegraph Herald


    MONTICELLO, Iowa — Hot weather couldn’t keep the church bells from ringing Friday night at the Jones County Fair.

    Even while humid temperatures soared to the mid-80s, loyal fairgoers filed into the fairgrounds as early as 7 a.m. to stake out spots for country singer Carrie Underwood’s evening concert.

    “We got here before 8 a.m. and started waiting,” said Sarah Quick, 36, of Readlyn. “We took turns sitting out in the truck with the air conditioning on, and we went in shifts to save our spot in line and got ice cream.”

    After opening act and fellow “American Idol” alumna Lauren Alaina left the stage, Underwood performed hits such as “Before He Cheats,” “Jesus Take the Wheel”, and her current single, “Church Bells.”

    “I’ve always been a fan of (Carrie), since as long as I can remember,” said Ryan Berger, 29, of Dubuque. “It seems like forever ago that I started to love her.”

    A sea of fans cheered as Underwood broke out her own “Carrie Cam” camcorder and featured audience members on screens surrounding the stage during the song, “All-American Girl.” Cell phones waved in the air during her acoustic tribute to Dolly Parton’s “I Will Always Love You.”

    “Carrie Underwood is our idol,” said Madison Delong, 21, who traveled from Cedar Falls with a friend to see the show. “She has so many good songs.”

    According to Great Jones County Fair General Manager John Harms, Underwood’s performance was a hot-ticket item, selling out almost immediately after tickets went on sale in November.

    “There were about 12,000 tickets that were offered,” he said.

    Harms estimated that with free hillside seating, as well as fairgoers listening to the concert from the grounds, Underwood had an audience of 25,000 to 30,000 people.

    And there were no heat-related illnesses.

    “I would assume some took it better than others,” he said. “Yes, it was warm. … I saw lots of people taking in water all day. And we’re Iowans. It’s the middle of summer, we’re outdoors, they get it.”

    Another country music group, Florida Georgia Line, was set to perform Saturday night with Cole Swindell and Chris Lane.

    Brittany Sears, 21, of Cedar Rapids, planned to attend both concerts while donning T-shirts recognizing each performer.

    “We come for the people we like,” she said. “It’s a lot of fun having the fair and the concerts together. It’s cool.”

    Carrie performed "See You Again" at the show. I saw a clip on Instagram. I'm glad she bought this song back. Don't know if she sang the rap version or the original.

    I wish she would bring back the rap version to the Storyteller tour. She did it all last year at the festivals and I really wanted to hear it in person. For me, I would replace the two cover songs with two new covers, replace CDS with Chaser, and LTG with SYA mashup and the Storyteller set list would be PERFECT.

    Pretty great that 25-30,000 people were there. She sold out the 12,000 tickets that cost $, but then the rest of the fans watched free from the hillside. That is cool.
