Ten-gallon hats, cowboy boots and daisy dukes dominated the crowd that filled the open-air event center grounds on the crisp fall night.

Fun-loving breakout duo Maddie & Tae opened the stage, engaging fans with songs including “Girl In A Country Song” and “Sierra.” Solo crooner David Nail was next up, delighting concert-goers with hits such as “Whatever She’s Got” and “Let It Rain.” Between sets, the crowd danced to country radio beneath the stars and enjoyed drinks from the event center’s numerous bars.

After meeting with fans backstage to pose for photos, Lady Antebellum band members Hillary Scott, Charles Kelley and Dave Haywood took the stage, opening their set with “Bartender” – the chart-topping single off their recently released sixth studio album 747. Scott stunned in a sleek black leather jacket with fringe, a sheer white blouse, black jeans and booties. The audience erupted into cheers as the country music superstars pumped out powerful performances of hits including “Just A Kiss,” “We Owned The Night” and “Need You Now.” The energetic set ended with a special encore cover of “Islands In The Stream” by Dolly Parton and Kenny Rogers.

DLVEC and the D Las Vegas owner, Derek Stevens hosted guests and celebrities in the VIP cabanas, featuring elevated cabanas with prime views of the stage, fully-stocked bars and plush seating. Notable guests included MMA and UFC star Randy Couture who is fresh off the 19th season of Dancing With The Stars, and his girlfriend actress Mindy Robinson. The celebrity couple also met with Lady Antebellum backstage before the show.

The concert took place on the opening weekend of Wrangler National Finals Rodeo, building excitement for the rodeo performances that are scheduled through Dec. 13.
