“Just being here is making me feel so great for living in the moment and just having fun right now,” Broussard says of her Bonnaroo experience. Though getting to play this show was the result of months of hard work, she’s ready to get back on the road. “I’m gonna hang out some more, see some bands, but I’m in Nashville tomorrow and New York on Tuesday, a crazy week in New York. Man, what a crazy ride!”


“The Bonnaroo festival is unlike any festival we’ve played at or any festival I’ve been to,” says Sheepdogs frontman Ewan Currie. “Even before we went on stage, people were chanting ‘Sheepdogs’ and I felt like I was getting ready to play the Super Bowl, I felt super pumped up.”
