GALLERY: Watershed returns to the Gorge
Shedders - a nickname for attendees at the Watershed Music Festival - didn’t let the heat stop them from enjoying the weekend. With cowboy hats, sunscreen and a good attitude, they made the most of the weekend.

Shedders had a blast, listening to different country artists all weekend long.
Watershed celebrated its 10-year anniversary at the Gorge this past weekend.
Jameson Rodgers rocked the stage Saturday afternoon. The singer-songwriter has performed across the country and helped write songs for Chris Lane, Jason Aldean and Luke Bryan.
The 100-plus-degree days were fought by Shedders with water slides, water sprayers and misters.
Shedders donned colorful bracelets to get into the festival, which was shown frequently as they put their hands in the air for the performers.
Jessie James Decker performed Friday afternoon on the main stage. Decker was born Jessica Rose James and her songs include hits like ‘My Cowboy’ and ‘When You Say My Name.’
Those in the pit at Watershed were all smiles, singing and dancing to the music and recording their experiences with their phones.
Some fans had signs, hoping to catch the artists’ attention. In addition to Chase Rice, this year’s Watershed lineup include stars like Morgan Wallen, Miranda Lambert, Kane Brown, Jake Owen, Jordan Davis, Dylan Scott, Jessie James Decker, Lauren Alaina, Jameson Rodgers, Runaway June, Locash, Caylee Hammack, Tenille Arts and others.
Chase Rice performed on Friday, day one of Watershed’s three-day festival. Rice is continuing to tour after his stop at the Gorge to perform in Oregon and Montana over the next few days.
