Crowd at Pasture Party, Friday Night

The first "Blue Norther" of the season blew into Sulphur Springs on Friday night, dropping temperatures some 25 degrees, about the time that local music fans made their way to the Benefit Pasture Party, hosted north of Sulphur Springs. However, the crowd was "warmed-up" by the great music and association of friends and made for a pleasant evening, if you came prepared with a blanket or two!
The evening began with a performance by local vocalist and guitarist, Monty Tipps, and continued when the local band, Tyler and the Tribe took the stage. Headliner and popular Country and Western artist, Coffey Anderson, joked and visited with the crowd and signed autographs, before taking to the stage at approximately 9:00 p.m., and "wowed" them with his offering of progressive and traditional numbers.
"We came to hear Anderson at the Volunteer Fireman's Hot August Night event, back in the heat, and enjoyed the show so much, that we wasn't going to miss this opportunity to hear him again!" expressed a group of young fans. "But, we 'burnt up' at the previous concert, and now it looks like we'll freeze to death at this one, but to hear him is worth it!"
"We're Tyler and the Tribe fans, but we like Monty and Coffey Anderson, too!" advised another group, snuggled in warm blankets and oblivious to the sharp north wind that was blowing across the pasture!"
