Toby Keith and Lee Brice will be a tough act to follow today, the final day of Country Thunder in Florence.

On the third day of four country music concert days, the two put on solid showing, with Brice performing such hits as "I Drive Your Truck, and "Woman Like You," and Keith singing "American Ride," "I Love This Bar," and "Beers a Go."

Keith was actually in Tucson yesterday making an appearance at his self-named bar before his arrival in Florence.

The arena was nothing short of packed when he did arrive, though. For the first time in Country Thunder history, the entire place was sold out with 25,000 people.

This year, the 20th year of Country Thunder, more than 4,800 campsites were sold out, with four new camps added shortly before the concert began.

It's safe to say Brice and Keith were a big reason the concert has been in such high demand this year.

Brice's performance was spectacular, and Keith followed that up with an energetic and heartfelt act on stage, saluting the United States military as is normal for him.

Keith is here for the second time in three years.

Today, Lady Antebellum will be the closing act, preceeded by Justin Moore.
