Many of you, some of you, none of you may be happy to know that my country music bucket list now feels complete.
We are a house divided.
You may remember that PhilBillPaul listens to country music because he married me. Attending country music concerts has never been on his bucket list. The Grunter is on his side.
Months and months ago I put a concert date on my calendar.
Only TWELVE (12) concert dates for the whole year. And one was here in lovely Gwinnett County.
I announced it would be my early Valentine’s Day present and I would go by myself if necessary.
Then I forgot until this week.
At 5:00 pm I was searching Craigslist and eBay for last minute tickets to a sold-out show.
The concert started at 7:30 pm.
Living on the edge, that’s me.
On Friday night, I attended that concert and PhilBillPaul was kind enough to accompany me because he’s nice like that.
He was one singer I had never seen live.
Granny told us years ago, “You know he just stands there and sings and plays his guitar.” which made me laugh.
Everyone can’t be Keith Urban.
I might have a few of his songs on my iTunes.
Granny was right.
George Strait stood there and played his guitar and sang for several hours.
It was awesome!
Martina McBride was also amazing as his opening act.
Even if you don’t love country music, go listen to this one and tell me you can open yourself up to a little twang every once in a while.
30 years of hits and I’m so glad I finally got to see him live.
What singer or group is on your bucket list that you haven’t seen yet?
