WOOOOWIE! Mark this day! We just got tickets for the Crossroads concert in July in Chicago! YEAH!!!!!! I was thinking we would not get them...I think they sold out in 5 minutes! Thank God for teenagers who wireless our house for the internet and tell us which laptops to buy!
And to think when my husband told me he was taking me to see Vince Gill in Rockford I honestly thought (please forgive me! I was ignorant!) "Oh my God I will die listening to a country singer for three and a half hours!" So I begrudgingly went to these great 4th row seats he had gotten....And somewhere into the first set I woke up. Holy Cramoly....this guy was good! Great! The band was awesome...everyone was having fun....and then he was funny and heartwarming and genuine too! And NORMAL! Wow. Three and half hours were up and I was saying "Come back, play some more!"
Then we had several bad things happen in our family and it was doctors and tests and a flight across the country to reconnect with my mom and sister...STRESS STRESS STRESS. During one of our fun moments I told my mom about Vince Gill...like I discovered him or something...and it turns out she's a big fan from way back. Did you ever feel like you were lost in a fog? I had no idea, and this is my mom! So I set them up with tickets to his Fort Myers concert last Weds (I was there in spirit only, physically in Illinois) They had the BEST time! They called me during the intermission and said everything was wonderful! Mom said his daughter was there and she has the most beautiful voice too. My sister was totally exhausted from being out so late (she's an early bird). And everybody is happy. The three of us are planning to go together next time. I buy the tickets to the show, mom will get my plane tickets. And the beauty of it all is: while there will be more doctors, more tests and more stress, we are focusing on comraderie and fun and joyous music. Yeah Vince!
I will get to see Vince come back and play some more--- along with some of my other very favorite musicians: B.B., Buddy, Clapton, Uncle Willie. YEAH! This rocks! WOOOOOO WOOOOOO!
