Frogfest Memories [VIDEO]
Trying to recall my favorite moments from the past twenty-three Frogfests would fill a book so let me just pass a long a few and hope that you might recall them as well. Frogfest 2000 will always be remembered as the one that introduced us to a hot new group from Nashville that called themselves Rascal Flatts. They put on a great show despite the rain and showed us all why they eventually became the superstars they are.
The Frogfest of 1994 featured another young hit-maker, Rick Trevino who was riding high with hits such as “Doctor Time” and “She Can’t Say I Didn’t Cry”. Frogfest ’96 will be remembered for the heat and an energetic performance from Ken Mellons who treated the crowd to a 12-minute performance of his top 10 hit “Jukebox Junkie”. Where he got the energy I don’t know. And who could forget Frogfest 2008 with special guest Josh Gracin a former “American Idol” finalist who, as I recall, had the girls up front going absolutely crazy. So many Frogfests so many great memories.
