One of the perks of working at The Northern Daily Leader during Tamworth Country Music Festival is some of the access we get at the concerts.
On Friday night, myself and fellow journo Madeline Link got to head backstage at the Opening Concert at Bicentennial Park and rub shoulders with some of country music's biggest stars.
While we were back there, we thought we'd take you for a tour through our lenses.
The country music stars were more than happy to jump in a photo for us.
These are the snaps and videos we got from our time backstage.
Out the front, there was a fair bit going on as well. The concert was kicked off with the Git Up Challenge which saw a couple hundred audience members having a boogie.
