West Michigan: Newsmakers June 22, 2008




Grand Rapids Press:

A lot of new country music acts have made their West Michigan debut in B-93's Birthday Bash. Area country fans soaking up the last day of fun today at the Bash in Ionia may want to say a special thank you to radio station WBCT-FM (93.7) -- which has hosted the free concert for 16 years -- for giving them their first look at some of country music's biggest stars. Anyone remember relative newcomer Tim McGraw, who brought down the house with "Don't Take the Girl" at Bash 2 in 1994? Or how about that new act, Rascal Flatts, a group that oozed charisma singing "Prayin' For Daylight" at Bash 8 in 2000? And who will forget a rockin' "Save a Horse (Ride a Cowboy)" from two guys who called themselves Big & Rich at Bash 12 in 2004? Each year, when B-93 program director Doug Montgomery determines the Bash lineup, he carefully mixes established stars with promising newcomers... Birthday Bash good at finding stars in the making (Sun, 6/22)
