Yay for new music! Not only did I pick up a copy of my most anticipated album of like ever, Miss Carrie Underwood, but I also grabbed the new one from Gary Allan, and Alison Krauss/Robert Plant. I haven't had time to listen to the latter two yet, but Carrie's I have been listening too for like a week. I absolutly love it. I will post my thoughts on all these later when I have time!
Oh and p.s if you get the Carrie CD from Target you get the DVD bonus with acoustic songs...we all know how much I freaking love anything Carrie Underwood does acoustically, so this is a real treat! Target Exclusive

Well, I am a little ashamed of myself...I went to this concert with every intention to focus and create a great review to share with the blogosphere, but...... I pulled a Kenny Chesney concert and got wayyyy too drunk and had wayyyy too much fun to focus on the details.
The details I do have are....
1. Rodney Adkins is really good! I enjoy a few of his songs, he really works a big crowd well and got us all pumped up for Brad.
2. I missed Taylor Swifts show (beer line was indeed really really long...so were the bathrooms), but her presence brings out shifty creepy old men who worship her....Its frightening.
3. Brad plays the heck out of his guitar. I love it!
4. Lights, video, and a great band, help Brad reach us way in the back! (It was just as cool a show from general admission on the hill as it was for 8th row seats last year!)
All in all I had a blast thanks to my amazing friends and good ole Bud Light!

Hey all, sorry no concert review yet, I've been a bit busy. But in the midst of all the craziness a bit of beautiful music was thrown my way last night.
I was at work, streaming the Grand Ole Opry, and my girl Carrie Underwood was playing. Of course she was amazing, vocals were spot on even through a bit of water choking (hate when it goes down the wrong hole). Anyways she did her usual thing, sang So Small, and then out of no where she throws in the gospel song How Great Thou Art. Now I love this song so the thought of arguably my favorite artist in the world singing it thrilled me to no end. I love, love, loved it. Just when I think I can't be more impressed with this girl (I know I've said that before), she goes and throws something in there that knocks me on my ass.
Anyways I was trolling the fan sites this morning and found where someone had recorded the stream. (Thanks to whoever got that!)
So here is her amazing How Great Thou Art and then the full Carrie Underwood Opry Performance.
Definitely worth checking out to brighten your day!

Tomorrow I will be headed to NOVA (northern Virginia for all of you who have no clue what I'm talking about) to see Brad Paisley in concert. I saw him last year with Carrie Underwood and they were both amazing. Brad puts on a GREAT show and I am excited to see what he has in store for us this weekend. I think Kelly Pickler and Taylor Swift are still opening for him, so that should be interesting, if I make it up from the beer line in time ( i kid i kid).
I'll try to write up my first formal concert review when I get back on Sunday so stay tuned and have a great weekend everyone!

Sorry for the lack of updates as of late...(I'm sure all 17 of my "regular" readers are gravely concerned...lol, not to mention the hundreds of readers who stop by just because I throw Carrie Underwood's name in a blog :) )
anyways....I have quite a few posts coming up that go into detail about some great country acts that I currently love (and no it has nothing to do with Carrie Underwood this time), and some fun science that I have been working on and researching for class (fun fun). so there should be a fairly large update on the way!
also, a big thank you to Kevin at Country Universe for his shout out! He writes an excellent blog on all things country music, so definitely check it out!
Also congrats to Josh Turner who just got asked to become a member of the Grand Ole Opry,
I have been a fan of his music for a while now ( how can you not love that voice) so this is a great honor for him!
