The staff of Sweet as Cotton Candy apologizes for our absence. Editor and magazine owner, Karen Cotton, lost her mother after a long battle with COPD and pneumonia in March of this year. After dealing with all of the business and paperwork that comes with a parent dying and grieving the loss of her best friend, Karen and her staff are ready, and back in business to cover music and other entertainment events in Colorado’s Front Range and in Cheyenne, Wyoming where the magazine is based. We will also be covering other locations in Wyoming, too.

We still have a readership of over 10,000 readers and I want to thank you for being patient with us during this difficult personal time. We are excited to bring you interviews and reviews of everything the Front Range has to offer our readers entertainment-wise, especially this summer!

She has interviewed performers in the entertainment industry such as the Jonas Brothers, Josh Groban, Taylor Swift, B B King, Merle Haggard, the Judds, David Copperfield, Toby Mac, Michael W. Smith, Amy Grant, Kenny Chesney, Clint Black, and the list goes on.

Charlie Daniels with special guest, Tracy Lawrence, perform at Cheyenne Frontier Days 2018


Sunday July 23, 2018

Story by Sheila Loney

Cheyenne Frontier Nights weather did not disappoint again this year.  The rain made its annual appearance before Charlie Daniels took to the stage and stayed for most of the  night’s show.   The crowd did not let the weather dampen their spirits.

Tracy Lawrence came out and the crowd was pumped from the beginning.  He sang all of his greatest hits including “Texas Tornado”, “Alibis”, “Sticks and Stones” and “Time Marches On”.  The excitement of the crowd could be felt as they sang along with him.

The 81 year old legend, Charlie Daniels, then took to the stage.  The crowd did not wain in their excitement.  He sang most of his greatest hits including, “Long Haired Country Boy”, “Simple Man” and “Legend of Wooley Swamp”.  He dedicated his song “In America” to our military and first responders.  He had his band take over with a rocking instrumental where the drummer had a long solo before he closed out the show with everyone’s favorite “The Devil Went Down to Georgia”,  I would have to say, this 81 year old still has the energy to put on one great show.
