Video update from the road:
Not safe for work.
Last night, Mike and I went to Billy Bob's Texas, a place I've wanted to visit for awhile. Yes, I think pretty much any current country music is pretty craptabulous, but I grew up on country and will always love it. Mike described Billy Bob's as "Midnight Rodeo on steroids," for you Springfieldians. Two stages, lots of bars, bull riding, and a dance floor where people actually know how to two-step. I sang along and Mike decided he now understands why there are so many songs about southern girls wearing cut-off jeans.
This is as country as I get these days:

Wade Bowen was performing. I haven't listened to much of his music, and I'm not a superfan now. He has some really strong songs, but also quite a bit of mid-tempo stuff that all sound very similar to me. He sang his version of "Love in the First Degree" from a recent Alabama cover album. I loved that!
We also got to meet up with our dear friend Natalie and her sweet family. Natalie, Mike and I worked together for several years and we have so many fun and crazy news memories. The Tristan family is such an inspiration to me--keeping faith and staying positive--no matter what.

Don't worry. Whether you care of not, there will be an update. (I don't want to forget anything about the experience EVER)
