Hell has frozen over.....I am officially a country music fan

As I have mentioned in previous posts, I am a season ticket holder for the Friday night Chastain Park Amphitheater series. This season offers the worst selection of concerts. When I saw that Trace Adkins of Celebrity Apprentice fame was playing this past Friday, I immediately listed the tickets for sale on Craigs List and StubHub. I am not a country music fan. Unfortunately, there were no bites so I invited some friends and went to the concert. As Trace made his way to the stage, my mouth fell open. He is a perfect specimen of a man ......about 6'4" tall, 220 well placed pounds, long legs, blue eyes and a deep baritone voice. He was the consummate performer and entertainer who commanded the stage. I was in lust and really enjoyed his music and show.

The highlight of the evening was when one of my friends, feeling no pain after drinking about a bottle of chardonnay, actually climbed up on the stage to give Trace a vase of flowers. All at once the stage darkened and the music stopped . My friend was escorted off the stage by 2 security guards. Luckily they did not kick her out of the concert!!

A great time was had by all. I am actually contemplating downloading a few of my favorite songs off of Itunes. I guess hell has frozen over.... I am a Trace Adkins fan!

Trace is actually 6'6" and about 250 when he is feeling good and from your pics I would say he is on top of his game. I believe I am a cougar because I have been an Adkins fan for 12 years----been to more shows than I can remember and I could have been his baby-sitter---does that make me a cougar? LOL By the way he is just as wonderful in person as he was in CA----he is actually shy with women! Read his book----you'll enjoy it.
