For 25 years Diamond Rio has been making hits. So when the Grammy award-winning super group took the stage on December 21st at The Weinberg Center in Frederick, MD I knew I was in for a real treat.
The band opened with “Kissable Hugable Lovable Unbelievable” which was enticing. You wanna know what 25 years of performing music will do? It makes you nearly flawless on stage. They performed some of their most beloved hits such as “Mirror Mirror” and “One More Day.” Diamond Rio have had so many hit songs over the years that they couldn’t fit them all into one set, so they decided to do a medley instead. Included in the medley were songs like “You’re Gone” and “In A Week or Two.” The musicianship was exquisite and showcased keen harmonies and strong vocals. There was no auto-tune or big stage gimmicks, it was simply fantastic musicians doing what they were born to do — perform.
The band also played some songs from their Christmas album, as well as some traditional tunes such as “Let It Snow.” It was remarkable.
Diamond Rio is a well-polished band. If you are looking for a flaw, I can assure you that there are none. It’s a solid show with pure musicianship as each member sings and performs. It’s rare. It’s entertaining. It’s country.
