It was a much-awaited act, but fans on Sunday night got what they wanted when Lady Antebellum took the stage as the closing act of the 20th-annual Country Thunder in Florence.

The trio put on an energetic show, performing such hits as "Own the Night" and "Need You Now" as well as their latest hit single,

"Downtown.

It was clear the group loved their fans as they interacted with the crowd and paused the singing to thank everyone for coming out to what has been a talent-filled arena of country music.

Lady Antebellum was introduced properly after Aaron Lewis and Justin Moore got the crowd moving, and the fans' cheers were deafening

as the group took the stage at 9 p.m.

Leading into the final day of the four-day concert, headliners Brantley Gilbert, Eric Church, and Toby Keith did not disappoint.

Yesterday, young country star Morgan Frazier sat down for a chat with The Explorer Newspaper, talking about her introduction to fame, her continued drive toward success, and her inspiration for song-writing.

Keep an eye on explorernews.com for a more detailed article and video footage of that interview.

The concert was sold out this year, and ticket buyers for next year's Country Thunder will no doubt need to act quickly if they want to secure a spot at Arizona's "Superbowl of Country Music."

How do you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women?

During the Jan. 20 town council meeting, a vote was unanimously passed to look into the feasibility of a “Memorial Public Art Project,” at the request of Oro Valley resident Dick Eggerding to potentially be placed somewhere in the town to honor military veterans and first responders. Though no concrete plans were then ready to act on, there was a show of overwhelming support for such project from residents and staff alike during the council meeting. In an effort to poll to community at-large, The Explorer would like to know how you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women.
