Stagecoach Fest Saturday pics (Chris Stapleton, John Fogerty, Langhorne Slim, Sam Outlaw, Rodney Crowell & more)
…attendance didn’t pick up until just before sundown when Chris Stapleton, who played the last two weekends in a tent at Coachella, took the Stagecoach Mane Stage. The 38-year-old Kentucky native stuck mostly to his soulful, 2015 Grammy award-winning album, “Traveler,” but showed his outlaw roots on Waylon Jennings’ “Ain’t Living Long Like This,” and the new blues, “Hard Living.” Justin Timberlake again didn’t show up for a duet on Stapleton’s cover of George Jones’ “Tennessee Whiskey,” as he famously did at the 2015 Country Music Association Awards ceremony, but the throngs of more than 50,000 people sang along with Stapleton, and his wife, Morgane, anyway.
Former Creedence Clearwater Revival frontman John Fogerty continued to draw people out of the campgrounds and into the gates with his mostly nostalgic hour-and-15-minute set at 7:45 p.m. in the overflowing Palomino tent. Fogerty started his show with a history lesson about his place in the 1969 music scene, including his memories of the Woodstock festival, which proved smart as one teenage girl said she only knew Fogerty from his post-Creedence song, “Centerfield.”
