As an announcer gave the five-minute warning to when Martina McBride would take the stage Saturday night in downtown Henderson, the crowd of thousands responded with a wave of chants, screams and clapping. For many, it marked the finale to a long day of sitting and waiting. The free country concert, which was opened by recording artist Jack Ingram and headlined by McBride, was hosted by Independence Bank as a celebration for its opening on Green Street. Bank officials estimated that nearly 5,000 people were inside the VIP section with thousands more lining its fence.
