West Michigan: Newsmakers June 21, 2010




Grand Rapids Press:

Whether or not country music is your thing, it's pretty easy to appreciate the two-fold nature of a B-93 Birthday Bash lineup.

No rain. No shirts. No problems at Day 2 of WBCT-FM's B-93 Birthday Bash. Bright sunny skies opened the 18th-annual event at US 131 Motorsports Park, and Antonia Fruytier and Mike Chapman came prepared this time. "We learned valuable lessons yesterday," said Chapman, 21, of Plainwell. Chapman and 20-year-old Fruytier of Harbor Beach came with a makeshift fort -- a white sheet clamped at all four corners to their lawn chairs. "SPF 15 is not enough, and a tent is a must," Chapman added, grinning. An smaller early morning crowd arrived for Sunday's lineup, which included local Kalamazoo act Dew South, siblings The Band Perry, three-part harmonizers Love & Left, funky crooner Justin Moore, sassy and laid-back singer Jake Owen and former Hootie & the Blowfish singer Darius Rucker...
