When the country music festival Stagecoach, also known as "Country Coachella", kicked off on Friday in Indio, California, the liquor flowed and many artists sang about the joys of day drinking and beer bongs. Even up-and-coming Mane stage artist Chris Janson came in with his Cuervo nominated party star "Fix a Drink". But then, with his new anthem for the #Metoo era, "Drunk Girl," Janson became surprisingly serious men in the audience, treating their (perhaps drunken) concertgoers with respect and never exploiting them.

drunk girl at home / Let her sleep alone / Leave her keys on the counter, your number on the phone, "Janson sang tenderly at his piano." Pick up her life, throw her to the ground / Let the corridor lights go and lock the door / So she knows the difference between a boy and a man. "Hopefully, Janson's important message did not survive on the night owls of their craft beers and margaritas in the blazing sun.
Most of Jansons Set were more cheerful and included some of the audience pleasing covers, including Billy Joel's Piano Man, Lynyrd Skynyrd's Gimme Three Steps, Subline's What I Got, and the Social Distortion version of Ring of Fire both themes – drinking songs and cover songs – came back all day.
Over on the Palomino stage, the original country bad girl, 59 years old – The young Tanya Tucker was as fiery as ever – not now r like a showgirl in her tight white jeans and tequila shots on stage with her backup singer daughter Presley (and the souvenir shotglass a happy fan), but also a mashup of Bruce Springsteen's "I'm on Fire" and, yes, Johnny Cash's steady favorite "Ring of Fire".
Explaining that she "paid tribute to some of my great heroes," Tucker later joked that she "probably should not do it," but cheekily covers Tammy Wynette's "Stand by Your Man" anyway. "God bless Johnny Cash." "I miss you, Tammy," she gushed, staring up at the sky, on the whole Tucker seemed pleased to play her first stagecoach, and the feeling was mutual: she received a roaring reception from the audience, to Guy Fieri , the festival's celebrity celebrity chef, who took alongside selfies and video footage of "Delta Dawn.
Later, on the Palomino stage, wildly styled Southern boys held the Georgia satellites into the drunken party. "You hear about the '80s bands coming back and now they're sober? Well, that's not us! Her show was an exuberant good time and she also featured some very unexpected cover versions: the Beatles "I Am the Walrus" and, inserted in the middle of her honky-tonk hit "Keep Your Hands to Yourself", another one Springsteen Song "Born in the USA"
Back on the Mane Stage, Kelsea Ballerini shot her soulful cover mashup of Chris Stapleton's popular country classic "Tennessee Whiskey" with her 2015 viral version of Little Big Town's "Girl" Crush, "then mixed a bit of Elvis Presley's" Can not Help Falling in Love "into her new hit" Unapologetic. "
But perhaps the most unexpected cover tune of the day came from Chris Lane (who, coincidentally, also rocked a Tucker-worthy tight white denim), who included "Let Me Love You" by R & B Lothario Mario and 2004's Slow-Jam convincingly turned into a pop-country lovesick ballad.
