Country acts Big and Rich and Gretchen Wilson entertain Abbotsford crowds

A week after the Train and Maroon 5 concert, The Abbotsford Entertainment and Sports Centre (AESC) was once again filled with screaming fans.

This time, it was thanks to country acts Big and Rich and Gretchen Wilson, who gave an electric performance on Thursday evening.

The show opened with a set by Canadian singer and songwriter Lindsay Ell.

Soon after, Big and Rich and Gretchen Wilson took the stage with an explosive introduction.

The duo Big and Rich are known for their unique take on country music by adding rock, hip hop and occasionally, rap.

They had fans on their feet with hits like Save a Horse (Ride a Cowboy) and Comin' to Your CIty.

Meanwhile, Grammy award-winning Gretchen Wilson drove the crowds wild with tunes like Redneck Woman and Here for the Party.
