Sweet Music to My Ears

Went to a concert yesterday and just had to comment on how wonderful it was. Martina McBride was in town. Unbelievable to get talent like her performing so close by. I saw she was coming to town last week and told my husband we had to get tickets. Also I wanted to take my youngest to his first concert. All I can say is that she may be small in stature but she has a powerhouse of a voice. She had several standing ovations just because she
gave it her all in many of her songs. She opened up with the song "Anyway", a song she co-wrote and it was fantastic! I have been a fan of hers for a long time and have her greatest hits cd back in 2001. Love every song on there. She had the crowd on their feet with many songs including a real crowd favorite, "Independence Day."
It's easy to see why she was voted CMA's Vocalist of the Year - 4 times and is the top country female touring act in the US for 2007. My youngest had a great time. It's too bad my oldest didn't want to come as "country" is not his thing. It was sweet!

I am hooked on the soundtrack to the movie Amazing Grace and the last song on it is How Great Thou Art sung by Martina. I have heard a few of her songs and as country is not really my thing I might have to make acceptions per artist.

I am glad you got to go do something fun! I will continue to pray for you as you transition into having a child living away at college. I will also continue to pray for your younger son and his health.

Have a great day!

Good to get out and have some fun - and leave a few cares behind for a while! I'm glad you had the chance to do that.
Keep painting as well and you should remain sane!

Tonia and Bette jo,

Listening to great music was definitely therapy for all of us too.
It was just very uplifting and inspirational!
