I was truly blessed this week turning 43. To celebrate, I started with a Vince concert September 19th in Arnold Missouri, and ended it with another Vince concert September 27th in Muncie Indiana. Both shows different from one another, I really like that Vince did these venues for us. Not only was I blown away by the accustic sound (front row both concerts), but I was blessed with the stories of Vince's life.
Some in my family called me crazy, my sister said I was too lucky, and my good friend Mara who went with me to the first concert was blown away by Vince's performance.
Both concerts were Awesome events in my life! 1st to attend with my best friend in memory of my "Vince Buddy" who passed away 4 years ago almost to the day of the concert, and the 2nd to meet new "Vince addicts" such as myself. I talked to one lady who had been to 4 concerts this week alone.
The highlight of my week, meeting Vince, not once but twice. I am truly honored, and will cherish the memories always. When he shook my hand and told me thanks for coming, I'm Vince Gill.....my thoughts were jumbled, what to say in so little time when others are waiting? Leave it to me to say "I know". 25 years of watching and listening to him at concerts, and albums, I now know a little more about why I have this "inVINCEable" appetite for him.
Thanks to all of Vince's fans, whom I now call friends. To those I owe pictures (Steve, Melinda, Ruth) they will be coming soon!
