Zach Attack with John Rich in Knoxville Last Night

Weston and Coty Wamp in supporting their dad, Third District Congressman Zach Wamp for Governor of TN held a free concert at the Tin Roof on the Cumberland Avenue Strip last night with Mega Country Music Star John Rich, one part of the duo Country Music recording sensation Big & Rich. This was really a College student event, but Weston and Coty were generous to me to allow an old 43 year old guy in. John had a meet and greet and he is a great guy to talk to.

At 9:55 p.m. Coty and Weston took the stage and thanked everyone for attending.

Weston then took about 3 minutes to give a stump speech.

Then John Rich took the stage and opened with Coming to Your City and then several of the other songs he performed were Johnny Cash's Ring of Fire, Lost in this Moment, The Good Lord and the Man, Shutting Detroit Down, Save a Horse Ride a Cowboy and a few more.

When Rich and his band performed the hit song Save a Horse Ride a Cowboy, he was joined on stage by Two Foot Fred. Two Foot Fred is a member of Rich's MuzikMafia. Six, Rich's bodyguard came on stage to assist Two Foot Fred after the song. Following the concert, I had the opportunity to talk with Six. Six is a great guy that performs his job exceptionally well. He stands 6' 9''.

Rich's encore was leading a packed house to Rocky Top. It was a great event right in the front door of the Knoxville Mayor who happens to be challenging Zach Wamp for Governor. The Knoxville Mayor had several volunteers occupy two tables at the Tin Roof until the place got so packed that they left.

The best quote of the night by John Rich about Zach Wamp was when he was saying that he has met all four candidates for Governor, they are all four good men but that "Zach Wamp has something that most politician's don't have. He has a set of balls and a backbone." Rich went on to say that Zach Wamp is the only guy that will meet Barack Obama at the state line and say bring it on and will challenge the Obama agenda. The house went wild.
