Brad Paisley and Randy Houser kept the good times going for the second night of the 2014 Taste of Country Music Festival on Saturday night (June 14).

Jamie Lynn Spears, Leah Turner, Craig Morgan, Charlie Worsham and the Cadillac Three were among the many performers who took the stage during the second day of the annual country and camping festival, which takes place every June at Hunter Mountain in New York.

Houser had to overcome quite a bit of adversity to even make it to the gig. His bus broke down several hundred miles away from the concert site, and the ‘Goodnight Kiss’ singer had to scramble to get to the show on time. But he showed up without any of his gear, forcing him to take the stage for an hour-long acoustic performance that saw him hold the audience of nearly 20,000 spellbound with ‘Boots On,’ ‘How Country Feels,’ ‘Anything’ and a cover of the Garth Brooks classic, ‘Friends in Low Places.’

Paisley headlined the second night of this year’s ToC Fest, with an appearance that’s part of his current Country Nation World Tour. The singer presented a high-tech show that was the extreme polar opposite of Houser’s straightforward set, using multi-media backdrops and flashing screens to help put his music across.

Kicking off with the title track of his forthcoming ‘Moonshine in the Trunk’ album, Paisley ripped through a set that included ‘Online,’ ‘Ticks,’ ‘Mud on the Tires’ and ‘American Saturday Night,’ among other hits. Carrie Underwood even joined him onstage for their smash duet, ‘Remind Me’ — as a hologram.

After an encore that included Van Halen‘s ‘Hot for Teacher’ and Paisley’s own ‘Alcohol,’ the second night of the festival ended with a literal bang, as concertgoers were treated to a fireworks display that lit up the night sky and rained down on Hunter Mountain.

The third and final day of the 2014 Taste of Country Music Festival will feature performances from acts including Thompson Square, Chase Rice and Thomas Rhett, capped off by a headlining set from the legendary Hank Williams, Jr.
