The South

Where tea is sweet and accents are sweeter; summer starts in April; front porches are wide and words are long; macaroni and cheese is a vegetable; pecan pie is a staple; Y’all is the only proper pronoun; chicken is fried and biscuits come with gravy; everything is darling and someone is always getting their heart blessed. -unknown

Guess who I went and saw.....

The Carr family, mom, and I all went to see Vince Gill in concert at the Ryman on Thursday night. He was soooo good! I am not a big fan of bluegrass music, but it was a wonderful concert. He came out and said that his back was on its way out, so if he acted funny, he wasn't drinking or on drugs. HAHA!
He started the night without any shoes on because he said they were making his feet hot, and by this point in the concert he took his jacket off. He seems like a really down to earth guy.
This was him singing with his daughter Jenny. They sounded really good together!

This was him singing "Go Rest High on that Mountain". The reason he got to sing that one was because Ricky Skaggs came by to play with him. It was probably my favorite song of the night.
What a wonderful time we had!
