They had a Lethbridge flag to use as their backdrop, which is also on their new tour T-shirts.

 The first set included a combination of original Treeline songs, an amped up version of Shaela Miller’s solo number “I Don’t Have a Friend in You No More,” and a couple of obscure county covers including Hank Williams’ Lovesick Blues  sung by Shaela Miller and which they boosted the tempo. “ Broke Down Poor” was another highlight.

 Shaela Miller sang most of songs in the first set though drummer Tyler Bird sang three in a row.
 Guitarist Taylor Ackerman sang“ Single Again”  and Ryan Dyck, alternating between playing bass and pedal steel guitar, sang the rest with all four harmonizing.

“ Loving Me,” was another highlight as were covers of “She Came Around Last Night” and the crowd favourite — a cover of Waylon Jennings and Willie Nelson's “I Can Get Off on You” sung by Ryan Dyck.Shaela Miller singing with Treeline. Photo by Richard Amery
