So Wednesday afternoon, Josh called me and said, "Would you want to go to the Carrie Underwood concert?" Of course!
He had gotten free tickets from a friend. They were good tickets - first level above the floor. My parents happily agreed to watch the kids, and we got to go on an impromptu date! I don't know how long it had been since we had one of those - probably before C was born.
The opening acts were pretty good. I really enjoyed Sons of Sylvia - they really were performers - especially the guy jamming out on a mandolin. That's right: a mandolin.
The next opening act was okay - he was a typical redneck country singer: Billy Currington.
Carrie Underwood was awesome! These are pictures from the part of the concert that she sings on the bed of a truck suspended from the ceiling and drives around the arena. Pretty cool.
