The King of Country

Last Saturday I went to see the "King of Country", Mr. George Strait live in concert. Thanks to Kristen, winner of the WMZQ Mega Ticket, we had great seats! And it was a good thing we had those seats under the pavilion cover because just as George came on a huge thunderstorm rolled in and it poured on everyone in the lawn.

We also rocked some pretty awesome cowboy boots. Can I just take a moment to say, if you dont have boots please go get some. You wont regret it.

Julianne Hugh was the first opener. She did a great job and she had some super sparkly shoes on. Sparkly shoes will always earn a few extra points with me.
If you are bored, you can check out this link to her video

Next up, Blake Shelton. He was really great! It was a total surprise! Kristen and I are now huge fans. I even stayed in my car for an extra 2 minutes today because his song was on the radio! Plus he is good lookin'! I can say that now that he has gotten rid of the HUGE mullet he used to have. Oh my, the mullet was BAD! But lets not focus on that now.
Here is a link to Blake Shelton video, sans mullet

And finally George. This is his Pure Country moment. At least I think its him, maybe there was a switch and we were really watching Buddy Jackson. Get it??

He was great! He is just so perfectly manly. But lets not forget to give a shout out to the "Ace in the Hole" band, who are supreme, even if they did look a little bored. Im willing to cut them some slack, some of them were older than my grandpa.

This is where the cowboy rides away. Get it again?? hint: its a great song. And he really did play that last. Kind of cheesy, but thats country music for you.

And finally a video. I tried to sing along really loud so you would all know what a duet with me and George would sound like, but I am drowned out. Oh well. And finally a George video. At the end of the video I was trying to film Kristen dancing but it was too dark.

Thanks to Krissy for a great night of music and seriously the best cheeseburgers and chocolate (not strawberry) shake Ive had in a while!!!

I LOVE cowboy boots! That makes me want to wear my Mexican Hat skirt with cowboy boots. Maybe to work tomorrow. Sounds like a delightful event!

It still kills me that after living in Texas for three years and Omaha for two years I never got cowboy boots! So glad you had a great time!

I must say that when you try to bring the southwest to the east, people tend to look at you strange. Example: I wore my turquoise necklace and feather headband to church and people looked at me like I had poo on my face. All I have to say is...AWESOME. Boots, awesome.
