Steel Guitar and Non-Smoking Bar

Josh Turner Concert

"I've got a home down by the river. I'm married to the woman of my dreams. Got a good truck that gets me down the highway. Everything's perfect or so it seems. Mama and daddy come by sometimes...and everything is fine."

Acoustically, I loved this night. A steel guitar, fiddle, mandolin...My ho down, blue grass, Boil Em Cabbage Down, alter-ego was channeled periodically throughout the night.

The Depot is an awesome venue. So small. We were so close. So fun. And as mentioned in the post title, it was a non-smoking joint. So we were free to yell and scream without pain in the old lungs the next day.

He's really not much of an entertainer. Not the flashy type. I think that is part of his charm. But all his songs sounded just like they do on his albums! (Except the Trisha Yearwood duet. His lovely wife filled in for that one.) I truly enjoyed myself.

These guys I loved! They opened for JT. (That's what his friends call him.) Joy and Eric is what they called themselves. They are local. And folksy. Loved it.

The reason we came. This man loves him some Josh Turner. I had a wonderful time dear. Thanks for taking me. I loved the concert. Yes, you are my soul mate. Yes, I would ride down streets of fire with you. Yes, I know you are a one woman man. Yes, I know you would like to fish and hunt squirrels way down south too. You are crazy, but I love you.
