Miranda Lambert @ Iowa State Fair (#0541)

Other than the pouring rain while we made our way into the fair and got to the grandstand, the show was a total success. Thank goodness for extra jackets and an umbrella.
RaeLynn opened. She had been on The Voice and was actually pretty good! Miranda rocked it in a silver sparkly skirt and tall boots. She and her friends had enjoyed the fair that day too, which I thought was cool. She came out for her encore ("Trailer for Rent") in an airbrushed t-shirt that said "Lonestar" and she said she'd enjoyed a corndog and a turkey leg. The Pistol Annies joined her on stage for 3 or 4 numbers and they were fantastic. I bought their CD as soon as I got home. Along with pretty much every song I wanted to hear, she threw in a couple covers, Rock & Roll Hootchie Koo (ok), a Loretta Lynn song (good), and "Wake Up Call" by Maroon 5 that she did with RaeLynn (terrific).
A nice fireworks show after the encore and sharing a footlong corndog on the way out capped off the night perfectly.
