WSBS was able to successfully pull off another "Sounds of Summer" concert on Tuesday, Aug. 15 at the Great Barrington V.F.W. Though there were some clouds, even a little mist, that didn't stop attendees from having a foot-stomping good time to the live music of Country Steel. The band put on a fantastic show and played their hearts out covering artists such as Shania Twain, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Big & Rich, Lady A, and many more. This was the first time Country Steel performed at Country Steel and at the end of the night people were coming up to us saying "I hope you have them back next year, they were excellent." They did indeed put on an excellent show.
