Perhaps a re-phrasing of the word 'whole' as it's impossible to see everything.

Just a personal decision to watch the fine Stacie Collins instead of Confederate Railroad.

Like SJ, I too was faced with the choice of seeing Confederate Railroad or Stacie Collins. I chose CR because Chris Jackson had finally landed them after ten years of trying whereas this was SC's second visit. Of the two, she is more likely to make a return visit.
Confederate Railroad were brilliant. a truly big stage performance for the new, bigger stage. They played all their hits of course, plus a tribute to Waylon Jennings and encored with Skynyrd's Simple Man. Magnificent.
Country is a state of mind, not a state of America.

Wish I'd been there! Or wish they'd done some other gigs in the UK.
