DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — Friday evening the Crossing at Big Creek hosted its first concert in a decade by welcoming country singer Cody Johnson.
Over 3,000 fans lined up and waited hours just to make sure they scored the perfect seats.
“I’m always early this is my fifth to me seeing him so I don’t expect nothing but the best,” big fan Devan Johnson said.
Thanks to the pandemic, many people haven’t been to a concert in over a year and believe this is the perfect way to kick the summer off.
“I’m super excited and I’m just glad things are kind of getting back to normal and just glad that we can get back out and do concerts again,” first time attendee, Madie Ard said.
While it was all food and fun, CDC guidelines were still followed.
“General admission we’re asking everyone to respect social distancing guidelines,” event manager, Clay Dempsey said.
Overall, fans explained how the concert was everything they imagined it would be and look forward to more events in the future. After the year the Wiregrass has had, this is a step in the right direction to getting them back on track.
Event organizers said residents can expect a lot more concerts in the future.
