Everyone has probably heard of the country singer, Craig Strickland of Backroad Anthem, whose boat capsized while duck hunting and caused his and his friend’s deaths last week down in Oklahoma. I realized that three years ago I shot his band at Kanza Hall when they opened for Joe Nichols. I didn’t actually meet either band in person; just shot from the crowd and took party pics of the fans. Not being country fan per se, I still thought Backroad Anthem was a tight band, and Strickland was a charismatic frontman. It was sad to hear what happened to him and his friend, and crazy to realize we crossed paths somewhat in the line of work.
