Overheard: What the Audience Really Thought About Lee Ann Womack and Scooter Jennings

Marty Becker, 58, retired schoolteacher, Brooklyn
This was more of a rock show than a country show. If it doesn’t have steel guitar or a fiddle, it’s not a country show.

Sam Mason, 31, pastry chef at WD-50, Brooklyn
We’re here to get drunk with Shooter. I own all his work, which is one album. And Lee Ann is a goddess.

Becca Roach, 23, bartender-artist, Manhattan
I grew up on a dairy farm. When I first saw Shooter, it was like, holy crap, here’s someone who understands where I’m from.

James Warden, “forties,” Bowery Ballroom security
I listen to hundreds of bands a year, and I’m lucky if five move me to think about buying a CD. I just might get Lee Ann’s.

Jake Kremmel, 28, Air Force officer, Red Bud, Illinois
New York scares the hell out of me. I parked my truck 30 miles outside the city and took a train in. If it wasn’t for these guys, I wouldn’t come here.
