The whole SheBang!

A nearby county fair had a good country music concert Friday night that I attended.

Joe Nichols - In-Person: 7/27/07. Last summer Joe was scheduled to perform at the country music festival I talked about a few posts ago. It rained so hard and delayed his show so late that I didn't have a chance to stay for it. Luckily he came back to my area this past Friday night, the weather cooperated and I was able to enjoy the show. His show was very good and included hits like "Brokenheartsville", "The Impossible", "Tequila Makes Her Clothes Fall Off" and "Size Matters (Someday)", plus new music from his next album. One I really liked was called "Let's Get Drunk & Fight". Before he took the stage I had him sign my "Man With A Memory" CD insert.

SheDaisy - In-Person: 7/27/07. SheDaisy opened the show. I had met them before but never had a chance to see them in concert. I really enjoyed their show A LOT! They performed many of my favorite songs of theirs like "Lucky 4 You (Tonight I'm Just Me)", "In Terms Of Love", "Little Goodbyes" and "I Will...But". Their sister Karli was filling in for Kristyn who's taking time off this summer to write material for their next album. I've been cranking the SheDaisy songs at home since going to this show.

Driving Mr. Spacey

Even though I haven't been sending out, it's still nice to see successes show up, especially successes like the one I received today.

Kevin Spacey - Sent: 9/13/06 Received: 7/23/07. This is a huge addition to my autograph collection. Kevin Spacey is a double Academy Award winning actor. I tried him last fall when he was doing a play in London. When I didn't get a reply, I tried him again here in the States back in May (I heard he was signing via that venue). Today it's my very first success that came back, postmarked London. Being the super hero fan that I am, it's no surprise I would send a photo of him as "Lex Luthor" from the "Superman Returns" movie. Kevin Spacey's other huge films include "The Usual Suspects", "American Beauty", "Pay It Forward" and "LA Confidential".

Some TA for today

A side note before I continue onto today's post, I will be combining the June & July monthly recaps at the end of this month. OK, now on to business. I went to a country music show last night at a county fair and gained two new autographs for my collection.

Trace Adkins - In Person: 7/19/07. Trace did an excellent live show last night that was chalked full of hits like "Honky Tonk Badonkadonk", "Hot Mama", "Ladies Love Country Boys", "Chrome" and "Swing". He also did an awesome cover version of Ronnie Milsap's "Stranger In My House". (I hope he records that someday). I met Trace before his show and he signed a CD insert for me.

Jamie O'Neal - In Person: 7/19/07. Jamie O'Neal opened the show that I went to last night. (I'm a huge fan of her work). It had been about a year since I saw her last. I had a nice visit with her and she signed the CD single insert to her most recent single for me after her performance. Her hits include "There Is No Arizona", "When I Think About Angels", "Somebody's Hero" and "Trying To Find Atlantis".
