I know people are going to think I'm crazy, but I'm telling you, you need to go see Lubbock Moonlight Musicals CATS!

I tell everyone that you have to appreciate all types of music in my business to appreciate the music that you are talking about. I believe this includes musical theatre.

I may have also gotten an early start in high school with an amazing and talked choir director I had. He taught me a lot, and believe me I appreciate what I learned and I love getting to put to practice what he instilled in me.

I got to sit in a closed dress rehearsal the other night and I was so shocked at the amount of talent that has come out of this area.

That's the crazy thing about this… most of the people in this production are local talent. There are a few people from New York that have lent a helping hand, but I dare you to pick out which one is which.

I had a hard time with it…

So I don't giveaway all the amazing things I'm going to stop there and I'm going to just say this.


Make sure you buy your tickets, because after this weekend CATS won't be around.

Trust me you don't want to miss this!

Despite the weather I decided to brave it and head on out to the Alabama concert on Sunday and that was the best decision I have ever made.

Now while I think that Jamie Lynn Spears is way more talented than her sister, and I have a bone to pick with every country music act that performs Aerosmith in their set…

I'll just say this, I had respect for Steven Tyler until he came out onto the CMA stage saying he loved country music, and instead of singing his favorite country song, he busts out into his very own, 'Cryin''… Uhm… You lost me Steve. After that I'm done with Aerosmith at country shows.

But what was crazy was Alabama.

I loved the show.

One thing that people don't seem to understand about me or the life that I had growing up is the fact that music was a huge part of it. On a slightly odd note I didn't have parents that were musically inclined. Mom played the piano and that is where that stopped.

I did grow up listening to all sorts of music, and talk radio. Dad really liked talk radio go figure.

Mom loved George Strait and so did dad, but there was one thing that I had forgotten about was Alabama, well until I got to the show.

The guy I took with me was a way bigger Alabama fan than I was, which I'm okay with, but I realized that Alabama was more prevalent in my formative years than I thought.

I realized this when I was able to sing along with way more songs than I thought. I was a little shocked, but at the same time not so much, when I remembered one little thing.

The little farm house I grew up in had a wall that my bedroom and my dad's office shared. My dad kept tabs on paperwork for the farm. Any farmer that farms the land that he owns knows there is lots of paperwork. Dad would listen to music while he worked on paper work.

I had songs like "Heartland", "Ocean Front Property", and "Amarillo By Morning" were all part of the soundtrack of my young life. We burned a hole through Shania Twain's "The Woman in Me" Album, but I had forgotten about the one group that seemed to always show up… Alabama.

I love that sometimes music reminds you about the good things in life that you forget about and sometimes seem lost in time, but they are always there.

So any money I spend on concert tickets are never a waste.

Just a little something that I walked away with from the Alabama show.
