We picked up our rental car and headed to Philadelphia to find out – along with the 50,000 other attendees – what a show of this scope is like, from beginning to end. From tailgating to Tweeting with opener Cole Swindell to crashing Bryan's meet and greet party, check out the experience from PEOPLE's point of view.
(And no, he didn't fall off the stage this time – but he did perform the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air theme, to the delight of the Philly crowd.)
