August 8, 2012 VouR COMMUNITY Page 11 From page 10 ders0n of Prineville. "I can't wait to see Bentley perform." Anderson said that this was his first year to the Jamboree and came specifically for Sunday's lineup. Picking the biggest hits of 1he weekend is hard to do, Regrutto said. "Obviously, Rascal Flatts was huge, and we had an amazing crowd Friday." Wynonna and Brantley Gilbert brought two different" styles, and people enjoyed both of them, while Chris Young and Dierks Bentley gave the Jamboree its biggest Sun- day crowd ever. Chano Garcia of Monmouth was particularly excited about Sun- day's line-up. "I've really been looking for- ward to this day," said Garcia, who was making his first visit to the fes- tival, as he stood in the Sweet Spot area just below the stage. He said he won two three- day general passes, plus Sweet Spot tickets for all the performers, fight in front of the stage, in a con- test conducted by a radio station. He said he reworked the words to "White Christmas" by the Drifters to create a jingle for the Jamboree.
