Granger Smith with Special Guest Drew Baldridge at Kansas City Live!

If you ever get the opportunity to visit Kansas City, Missouri, you can now experience a new Downtown Kansas City with the Kansas City Power & Light District.

Kansas City Live! is an entire city block with two levels of world-class restaurants, taverns and night spots. Kansas City Live! also features a full-concert stage where the country’s most premiere musicians and bands perform weekly during the summer and for special events throughout the year. 

During my travels from Fort Bragg, North Carolina to the Midwest, I was excited to learn Granger Smith with Special Guest Drew Baldridge was scheduled to perform in my home state of Missouri August 9th, 2018. 

Kansas City Power & Light District was very accommodating to allow me media access to capture this event.  I also received VIP passes that allowed my husband who is currently serving in the Army at Fort Bragg, North Carolina and who will deploy soon to accompany me and see what I do.  The access really made this experience AMAZING! 

The evening started with meeting Granger Smith before the concert. It's not very often as a photographer I get the full VIP experience. Once again, KC Power & Light District made that possible. 

Show Time... Special Guest Drew Baldridge took the stage to kick off the night. 

Fans at this show heard songs from his first album, as well as a sampling of new tunes from his upcoming album - such as his newest single, “Gentle Man.”

Country fans were introduced to Baldridge by his energetic first single, "Dance With Ya." 

Now they're getting a feel for his more serious side with "Rebound," both featured on Dirt on Us.

"When people leave a show, they don't remember the last dance move you've done, they don't remember the last chord you hit, but they remember how they felt in that moment. When people leave my shows, I want them to remember how they felt, and I want them to feel inspired," said Drew Baldridge.

As Baldridge finished his performance, the lights turned down low.

Fans in the VIP Terrance had an awesome view of the stage.

Just as fans were waiting in anticipation, Granger Smith walked out on stage. 

The crowd filled with excitement. 

The energy was powerful as fans got closer to the stage.

"I do what I love and love what I do, and there’s no sweeter freedom than that," said Smith.

Granger Smith with Special Guest Drew Baldridge put on an outstanding performance. I had such an amazing time. 

I have to say KC Power & Light District is Kansas City's favorite gathering place. Whatever your mood, whatever your age, there is always something fun happening here! I definitely will come back next time I am in the area.
