Canaan Smith Plays The First Ever Concert at SilverLakes in Norco

In the first ever concert at the SilverLakes Sports Complex in Norco, Nashville artist Canaan Smith and local favorite Francelle slayed at K-Frog’s Pre-Memorial Day Backyard Party.

Despite the chilly evening, concert-goers enjoyed the scenery of the lake, draft beer, food trucks (including the K-Frog Bacon Nation Food Truck!), line dancing, games, and shopping at the City Roots in Boots tent before, during, and after the musical acts as the sun sank in the Southern California sky.

“Canada’s Got Talent” finalist Francelle opened the show, accompanied by another local favorite Arnie Newman, and her husband Matt Leger on bass. Classics like Patsy Montana‘s “I Wanna Be a Cowboy’s Sweetheart” and LeAnn Rimes‘ “Blue,” as well as originals like “He Taught Me to Yodel,” and her current iTunes single “Tell Me Why” demonstrated why Francelle has become an international yodeling sensation.

On his way into the venue, Canaan Smith heard his current single, “Like You That Way,” on the radio for the first time ever, courtesy of K-Frog. He included that one in his solid full-band set, as well as several other brand new songs, and many album cuts from his debut album Bronco. He described “Mad Love” as fighting to make a relationship work, and “American Muscle” as a “tribute to the most bad-ass nation on earth.”

Audience favorites included the beachy “Come Back to Virginia,” the bittersweet “Stuck,” and “Summer and a Six Pack,” which Canaan shared was inspired by hot Nashville summer nights on a boat.

The crowd sang along with every word to “Hole in a Bottle,” and his closing number, the #1 hit, “Love You Like That.”
