Closing out Friday night was Grace Potter, who's no stranger to the music festival scene.  For years Grace Potter has frequented the stages of many festivals including Candler Park.  Fans enjoyed a variety of favorites including "Paris (Ooh La La)" and even a special cover of Etta James "I'd Rather Go Blind"
