2019 was one of our biggest shows ever! We had two Lukes on the same stage.

Let’s take a look back at my Kicks99 Guitar Pull photo album. Today is the big day. We’ve been waiting on it since late August. Countless days have been spent talking about the artists, and the songs, and all of the festivities that go along with the show. Well now the time has finally come! Happy Guitar Pull day y’all!

How Many Have I Been To?

This will be my 21st one. I only missed the first three in 1999, 2000 and 2001. However, since 2002, I’ve been fortunate enough to be at every single show. I’ve also been fortunate enough to have a ton of memories and stories from over the years. Also, I have a ton of pictures too! I mean how could I not, it’s been 21 years after all.

Where Have They Been?

I’ve seen the show in three different venues. First there was The Bell Auditorium, then the USCA Convocation Center and finally the James Brown Arena. It is a little bitter sweet that tonight will be the last Guitar Pull in the current James Brown Arena. We’ve gotta send it out in style! Then we can start looking forward to what the show will look like in a brand new arena in a few years.

Who Have I Seen?

One of the coolest things I’ve been able to experience is watching several country artists become country superstars after playing Guitar Pull. Names like Jason Aldean, Blake Shelton, Luke Bryan, Dierks Bentley and Eric Church all played the show when they were fairly new in their careers. Now they’re some of the most well known names in country music.

This show is so special to me. I can’t wait to be a part of another one tonight. In the meantime though, lets take a little walk down memory lane.

By the way if you want to check out one of my favorite videos from a past Guitar Pull, here’s one from 2019 when we had Luke Bryan and Luke Combs. To check it out, click here.
