Time well wasted

They aren't exactly front row, but I have seats to the show. Rose Garden. Portland, Ore. Friday, Sept. 23. Sugarland, Sara Evans and Brad Paisley. It's Paisley's "Time Well Wasted" tour. You got to love that name. It's a motto, it's a way of life, it's the name of Paisley's new album and the name of a concert tour.

Yes, country music, deal with it people.

I bought a pair of concert tickets when then went on sale this morning. I haven't been to a big concert in a while. I've seen a few concert shows in Vegas in recent years, but that's about it.

In fact I saw Sara Evans in Las Vegas last year headlining a show with Phil Vassar. I've got some photos I took from that show. I may have to post one or two when I get back home, if anyone is interested. I saw Paisley in Vegas a few years ago too with Chely Wright.

Yes, I have major crushes on Chely Wright and Sara Evans. And I'm not ashamed to admit it.

I'm hoping I can convince my long-distance lady friend to venture to the West Coast for the show. But she blew me off the last time I bought a concert ticket for her for a George Strait/Jo Dee Messina show at the Forum in L.A. So I may need a backup plan.

But for now I am stoked. Scored a pair of tickets minutes after they went on sale for a concert that I've been looking forward to since I first heard about the show on my new favorite radio station, KWJJ, The Wolf.

I'm as giddy as a teenager. Now I need to hop in the shower and get dressed and run a few errands so I can go pick up my teenager and bring her home.

I doubt she will be impressed with my Brad Paisley tickets. She probably won't want to be my date either.

She doesn't like country music. I will so make fun of her someday if she becomes a country music fan someday. My dad missed that opportunity with me. I will make sure not to pass up the harassment opportunity if it comes my way.

I thought I told you that you are not supposed to remember bad things about me! Only good!

I remember it all baby, well, except for the stuff I forgot, but I can't remember what that is.

Yes sir to country music. Only good kind of music ever writ.

Never be ashamed to listen to honest music. If you were a closet rap fan, now that would be something to hide, but country? Nope. It's the heart and soul of this nation, buddy.
AND I AM SO JEALOUS OF YOU RIGHT NOW, great concert!!

WTG! Actually - I'd be more psyched about seeing Sugarland than Paisley... I've been a long time fan of Kristen Hall (Gal Pal to the Indigo Girls) and Kristian Bush (Billy Pilgram). I actually heard "Something More" on mainstream radio in Michigan of all places. If anyone deserves some top 40 success it's those two very talented singer/songwriters who've been over looked for years. And that Nettles has one hell of a, er, voice. Okay - I think I've made my point! Ha - Have fun!

Thanks for the info on the Sugarland folks MJ. That was information I did not know. I like the songs of theirs I've heard on the radio, so I'm looking forward to seeing them live.

I already know I like Evans live (although she was pretty chatting during her Vegas show, which was a bit annoying, but she's so cute I didn't mind).

And Paisley is a great guitar player, which I didn't expect from a pretty boy singer.

Chely Wright - talk about HOT. I've dined with her, had a nice long conversation with her, had cocktails one time... all from my old days in radio... and I can tell you this. She's almost the perfect woman. Almost, because she has some really narly feet. Long crooked toes and just huge feet. As long as she wears socks, I'm okay with her. hahaha! Just my 2 cents.

The G-man said...

Dave, you are killing me man. Ruining the fantasy. Knarly feet are not good. Not that I have a foot fetish or anything, but a sexy foot is a thing to behold.
