Country Thunder is a thigh slapping, rock-tastic, guitar wielding showcase that hosts two different line ups in Arizona and Wisconsin.
When Arizona's been and gone, the line up for the Wisconsin event gets set to start some furious foot stomping. 2005 had silver studded headlining acts including Tim McGraw, Keith Urban, Montgomery Gentry and Hank Williams Jnr. Bearded wonders ZZ Top polished the whole thing off on the Sunday.
The stage also hosts a karaoke contest for wannabe Stetson crooners. Slick your hair back, put your best boot forward and give your guitar a good twang!
