Today’s Reason To Drink

IMG_4878Who all went to the Garth Brooks concert this weekend? Despite Trisha Yearwood not being there (ACK!), it was a pretty good time. Like a time warp to 1995.

Here’s my write-up of the dance.

An excerpt:

Brooks’ tour has broken more than 30 attendance records so far, and he’s thrilled to be reconnecting with both old and new fans alike. One difference in the audiences from the ’90s and now, he said, was that for the first couple songs, the entire front row has their back to him – “because they’re taking selfies with me and the stage in the background. I win them back by the third song, though, so it’s all good.”

Before the show, I was invited to a press conference where we got one-on-one time with Mr. Brooks. Luckily I have some friends in high places, so I had a basket of Four Roses bourbon for him. He was so happy that A) I brought him bourbon, and B) I didn’t have any further questions, that he bear-hugged me. I have a photo to prove it.
