Dusting off my boots…

I will be MIA for a few days. Santa came early and brought me tickets to go see


and her


with this handsome fella…
my oldest son, who shares my love of country music.

It’s been a dream of ours to see Garth Brooks in concert. His retirement has made that a little tricky!

But he is giving 9 sold-out benefit concerts to aid victims of last spring’s flooding in Nashville.

His wife, Trisha Yearwood (also one of my absolute favorites) will be performing too!

And we are gonna be there on the front row.

I’m beyond excited and dusting off my boots!

Thanks, Santa.

    • Hi Sheila, Anything we shouldn’t miss while we’re there? We are staying right next to the Bridgestone Arena and have a little time to explore. Any suggestions would be appreciated! Merry Christmas.

      I’ve seen Garth in concert. He is awesome. I wasn’t on the first row, but I was close enough to have him swing over my head on a rope. It was amazing. You will not be disappointed. Enjoy and Merry Christmas to you and your family!

  12. What day did you go? I went to the Friday night concert. It was one of the best concerts I have ever been too. My husband, who doesn’t even like country music, went with me and had a good time. I was jumping up and down screaming like an idiot. It was awesome!!

    • Candice, we went on Monday night. It was just incredible. I totally agree with you. It was probably the best concert I’ve been to. He was fantastic!
