    Very disappointing that Billy Ray Cyrus could not show up! Jason Crabb made it there even with a death in his immediate family! All the performers were great! But I will have to say, it was Jason that stole the show! His performance was top notch, as always! Nice to see a young man that gives all the glory to God like he does and never forgets his humble upbringing!
