The Cheyenne Frontier Days crowd honored United States military service men and women with chants of “USA, USA…” from the rodeo grandstands before Toby Keith opener Eric Church took the stage with his trademark aviator shades and up-to-something smirk. After Church got the crowd ready to party (or fight) with songs like “How ‘Bout You” and “Smoke a Little Smoke,” Keith strolled on stage, guitar in hand and pyrotechnics ready. With his larger-than-life presence on the jumbotron, Keith belted out classic hits and the title track from his 14th album “Bullets in the Gun” accompanied by flames, fireworks and smoke.
