Critical reception[edit]

Kendra Meinert of the Green Bay Press Gazette says of the opening of the show, "It was a fabulous opening. A panel of three video screens led the crowd of 4,983 in a countdown, with the threesome emerging from the rolling smoke together on a platform before engaging their band members in a few choreographed dance moves, including a synchronized six-person jump line".[4] "That exhilarating intro set the pace for an evening Kimberly promised would be part therapy and part recess, a leave-your-worries at the door celebration of "one loving country music family under this roof". And that it was — with an asterisk that this particular country family also happens to like to rock".[4]
