During the show, frontman Del joked with the crowd that he's been taking it easy on the couch, while his backing band has been quite busy in the past few months touring with Dierks Bentley's Up on the Ridge Tour. Del himself made an appearance on Dierks' album with a vocal on the track "Pride (In The Name of Love)."

The Del McCoury Band took requests such as "Nashville Cats" and "1952 Vincent Black Lightning," and was joined by a stellar lineup of guests, including Vince Gill, Ronnie Bowman, Sam Bush and John Cowan.
