This week Dub’s Guitar Pull Memories will focus on 2006. I would say that 2006 was a turning point year for Kicks99’s Guitar Pull. We’ve had a lot of great shows over the years, and we’ve had some huge shows as well. 2006’s Kicks99 Guitar was our first huge show. Rascal Flatts headlined Guitar Pull that year. We’d had Rascal Flatts on Guitar Pull three years earlier, but in the years between 2003 and 2006, Rascal Flatts blew up! They were the hottest thing in music, not just country.
Also in 2006 we had a fairly new artist named Jason Aldean (ever heard of him?). One of the things that made the 2006 Kicks99 Guitar Pull different was it was the only year we didn’t sell any tickets. If you wanted to go to Guitar Pull in 2006 you had to win tickets. And thus began a fall time tradition in Kicks Country, Guitar Pull ticket stops. By the way if you need to know where the next stops are for this year, just click here.
The first ticket stop that year was insane, I can still remember it even today. I’ve met so many of y’all and your families at ticket stops over the years. It’s so cool to be able to still be out doing them all these years later. Here’s a video of some of my memories from 2006.
Also if you missed my Guitar Pull memories from 2002 you can see those here.
Here were a couple of the songs we heard at Kicks99’s Guitar Pull in 2006.
Rascal Flatts “What Hurts The Most”
Jason Aldean “Amarillo Sky”.
