Went to see Lee Brice the first night and had an awesome time... Until the drunk redneck next to me, along with all his friends, began screaming obsenities at the top of their lungs.  When a mother in front of me with a 7-8 year old child asked them (politely I thought) to cut it out, they cursed her out as well.  We ended up moving, as did the mom and her daughter.  Please, if you're going to drink at the CCF, remember that other people go there to enjoy themselves - not get obliterated!  Also boys, shame on you, I'm sure your mamas raised you with better values than that!
