The Cowboy Kickoff Concert and Pep Rally has come and gone.... but it won't be forgotten. A record crowd of nearly 4,000 turned out for the event. And despite a sprinkling of rain earlier in the afternoon, Tailgate Park was packed with blankets, lawn chairs or groups of friends huddled in circles singing along to country tunes.

Take a look through the gallery above for a random assortment of photos we loved and photos that refused to fit in any of our other galleries (lookin' at you, Cowboy Joe. You're just too cute to leave out!).
