The 2015 Taste of Country Music Festival kicked off with a bang on Friday (June 12).

Featuring Rachel Lipsky, Logan Mize, LoCash, Colt Ford, the Eli Young Band and headliner Keith Urban, the first day of ToC Fest 2015 had everything from classic country covers to karaoke. LoCash got the crowd rocking, EYB had 'em singing along and although Urban's set was delayed slightly due to a massive storm, the fans that stuck around were treated to a hits-filled show from the country superstar.

But Urban's performance wasn't the day's only highlight: Ford and LoCash collaborated; the Eli Young Band dotted their set with covers; and, simply put, all of the day's artists played solid sets of quality country tunes. On stage, the hits came fast and furious, and the fans arrived early in the afternoon and camped out on the hill to see each set.

From Urban's post-storm day-closing set to "hot pepper karaoke" in the campgrounds, Day 1 of the 2015 Taste of Country Music Festival was packed with highlights.
