Picture Show: George Strait, Reba McEntire, Blake Shelton and Lee Ann Womack Open The Cowboys Stadium

Over on Unfair Park, you can read Megan Feldman's take on opening day at the new spacecraft Cowboys Stadium in Arlington. But if you're looking for mine? Well, you'll have to wait until Wednesday (when my column comes out with the print edition), to see my thoughts on the drunks in the pit, the hicks up top, and what this all means for the poor widdle venues like American Airlines Center, Pizza Hut Park and Superpages.com Center.

In the meantime, you can check my Twitter feed for my live play-by-play of the weird, long day. Or, better yet, check out Patrick Michels' slideshow of the event.

Support the independent voice of Dallas and help keep the future of Dallas Observer free.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
