At 1:45 p.m., a half-hour after she was scheduled to start performing, Carlene Carter finally hit the Palomino Stage.
"Hey y'all," she called to the crowd.
She slung an acoustic guitar over her shoulder and asked if the crowd was ready. The fans responded enthusiastically. I know I'm ready, since I've been waiting here for her to come on for a half an hour.
"Hold on, I'm about ready," she said as she fiddled with her guitar.
Then she launched into the rollicking "I Love You Cause I Want To" and then "Sweet Meant To Be."
When Carter was introducing her band, she said she said if she ever had her derriere massaged it would be a particular band member.
Continuing with the irreverent stage banter, here's how she introduced the next song.
"You don't get married when you're 15 unless you're dumb or pregnant. I was both," she said.
Then she went into "The Bitter End."
She continued the entertainment from the stage, talking about how even though her most recent album is a couple of years old, she still considers it brand new because not nearly enough people have bought it yet.
Now it's time for a song about divorce.
"What good country album would not have a song about divorce on it?" Carter asked.
Carter was scheduled to play the longest set outside of any of the headliners, from 1:15 to 2:35 p.m. I think she'll probably go to the same time with an abbreviated set.
