A "country" music concert with my daughter and granddaughter

We left home before 11, and arrived back home after 10 PM.  So you know we had a big day.  My biggest problem was that my rear end eventually got sore from all those hours of sitting on the ground on a blanket.  If I had it to do over again, I'd rent one of their low-to-the-ground lawn chairs for $6.  Hey, that's a bargain:  I saw hundreds of people guzzling $6.75 beers.  I bought a T-shirt, and a cowboy hat for Natalie's birthday.  No food.  I managed to survive eating animal crackers, Hi Ho crackers and peanut butter, and other snack stuff Rachel had tossed into a bag.

I don't listen to current country music; I'm stuck in the 70's and 80's honky-tonk sound.  But I love people-watching, so I enjoyed myself just fine.  There was lots of talent in the groups and singers performing, it's just that most of the songs weren't what I expect from country music.  But hey, this is the woman who went to Van's Warped Tour with the grandkids.  I can enjoy almost any music to some degree.

I did find one act I really enjoyed, and I'll be paying attention to them and perhaps buying some of their CDs.  "Ryan Shupe and the Rubber Band".  They're good! 

My daughter posted some pictures of our day in her journal, too.  Check them out HERE.

Sounds like you had a good time!  You don't like current country music?  But some of it is good!  Just some of it, the clean stuff, lol.
