Without a question this was the best concert that I’ve ever seen at the Minnesota State Fair, and for Brandi it was one of the best shows of hers we’ve been to. The night started off different with Brandi singing “Somewhere Over the Rainbow”, not at the end in an encore, but instead it was the 2nd song of the night. An early nod to the set list ahead and the special night.

Brandi recounted how 15 years ago they performed free shows at the Minnesota State Fair. She also shared her love of fairs and highlighted that her very first concert was seeing the Judds perform (Wynona Judd opened up for her!) at a fair in Washington. The set list went deep. Her wife Katherine came out for a song. Wynona came up for three different songs. It was an epic night filled with love.
