I Love My Country Music!

I’ve been enjoying some live country music lately.
Caty and I went to Country in the Park with the Chase Family.  It featured – The Eli Young Band, Sunny Sweeney, Jack Ingram, and Dierks Bentley.  It was such a beautiful day and we had a blast!

On Sunday September 12th, I went to the Air Wolf concert with some friends.  This show featured Josh Thompson (who we had seen at the Grand Ole Opry back in July – love the song “Way Out Here”).

And former American Idol Josh Gracin

My favorite song of his is “We Weren’t Crazy”
Even got to meet Josh Gracin
On September 14th, I met some friends for yet another music filled night.
These next pictures are of the Chris Gardner Band – a local favorite of mine.  I’ve become friends with them and they put on an awesome show.

Here’s Chris with Hanna at a Meet and Greet with John Rich – we walked in and he came up and asked if he could hold her.  I gladly passed her over to Chris because I knew that I’d be holding her enough during the show. 
Justin Moore, who’s currently touring with Brad Paisley, made a stop in Sacramento.  My friend Junette happens to be in his fan club and was able to get us Meet and Greets.  Can’t say it was much of anything except for a picture.  After taking pictures with the fans he took to the stage.  He put on an awesome show!

My favorite Justin Moore song – Small Town USA
And another friend of mine, Cheryl, won Meet and Greets for John Rich, formerly with Big & Rich (you know the song “Save a Horse, Ride A Cowboy”).  Her friend wasn’t able to make it, so Hanna and I joined her.  He answered audience questions and sang a few songs.  Then graciously took pictures with all 75+ people that were there.   Thanks Cheryl for inviting us!!
Hanna discovered a tiny piano during the meet and greet and she, unfortunately, started playing it quite loudly while he was answering questions.  Oops!!  Thankfully I had a stash of graham crackers so I was able to side track her from the piano. 
Check out Hanna’s signed picture!

You have been having fun with your country music :0) Fun that you got to include the Chase's in one of your outings! I love Caty's green & white outfit ... so cute!

Thank you for including all this country music! I enjoyed listening to it; I was really digging Green Tractor.

I think it's awesome that you get to see all this live music. My friend wants me to go to Steamboat for the Musicfest this January. Have you ever been?

Wow - talk about fun times! How fun that you and the Chase's got to meet up for one of the festivals too! Hanna looks beautiful in her blue dress, and I love that she found the little piano to play! :)
I keep telling Jason that he has to take me to a concert once Jude is weened. I was really hoping to see Lady Antebellum one of the times that they were playing nearby . . . have you seen them in concert?
