Festival Brings In BBQ and Country Singers

"Balloons, Tunes and BBQ" in Bowling Green took place this weekend.

The event went on at the Bowling Green Airport with plenty of games, music, food and of course, balloons.

An estimated 25,000 to 30,000 were expected which will help benefit the "United Way."

Various news, weather and sports folks from WBKO manned a booth there, too.

A big part of of the event is the music.

On Sept. 7 there was a Bowling Green Idol competition and on Sept. 8, a number of artists took the stage, including country music stars Danielle Peck and Eric Church.

Danielle Peck is known for her has had hit country songs such as "Finding a Good Man" and her latest song "Bad For Me".

Eric Church is known for songs "Sinners Like Me", "Guys Like Me" and "How 'Bout You".

We caught up with both artists before they took the stage to talk a little about they're fans.

"They're just the best fans out there-- the country music fans. I can't say enough about them. They're just the best and they're supportive. I just love them. They're my friends," Peck admitted.

"We were in Flint, Michigan last night and there was a large number of them that drove down and followed us from Flint. So, it's fun to have them follow us around and it's a great crowd. We're gonna give them all we've got," Church said.
