Jason Aldean played the first of his two sold-out shows at Fenway Park on Friday.
It was the first country concert at the park.
Miranda Lambert got the crowd warmed up with her brand of sass and sensitivity.
She shifted gears between blazing anthems and gentle tearjerkers.
As he did at the Boston Strong benefit concert in May, Aldean came out swinging.
He started off with "Crazy Town" and for 83 minutes kept up a brisk pace.
The Georgia native led his crackling five-man backing band through a professional, polished, and likable outsized arena country show.
