WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W.Va. -- Despite Thursday night's heavy traffic, which caused some ticket buyers to miss the Tim McGraw and Luke Bryan show altogether, fans were guardedly optimistic about Friday's Black Eyed Peas concert.
"We were stuck in traffic for over two hours last night. We had to miss all of Luke Bryan, but made it in time for the Tim McGraw show," said Katie Fowler, 22, of Huntington. "Now we're better prepared and we made sure to leave earlier this time to get settled."
Fowler said bringing the pop icons in for the Greenbrier Classic concert series is a perfect way to bring some positive attention to West Virginia as a state.
"I think shows like these draw a bigger and a different crowd," she said. "People from out of state who may have misconceptions about what West Virginia is like get to see such a pretty part of our state through this.
