The reason it's taken me so long to blog about my big Josh Turner evening is because I was asked to join his band and I've been too busy rehearsing to spend time on the computer. Everyone in the band is very impressed with my maraca shaking skilz.
I was going to write about it on Saturday but I ended up watching a movie instead. Then Sunday we spent the afternoon hanging ten mirrors in the kitchen and it WIPED ME OUT. Handing Christopher nails while commenting on why tape measures are useful is very draining.
Contrary to what we believed, the concert was not only Josh Turner. It was the Grand Ole Opry radio show featuring about ten different performers. Most of the performers were from back in ye olden days, like this man in a cactus shaped tie.
Blake Shelton made an appearance. Based on the screams from the young ladies in attendance, it was quite obvious he's a current star.
When Josh finally appeared, this happened. The camera couldn't handle the awesomeness.
Josh was just as delightful as I hope he would be. Slightly smaller, but still delightful. He was so funny too.
Here he is reading the details of my babysitting contract. I only requested three private concerts a month which I think is totally reasonable considering I'd be watching three children.
Right before he played Why Don't We Just Dance, Josh said to find someone to dance with. I would have danced with him but Mrs. Turner was there and I didn't want to cause a problem. Not to mention that my husband was also there. I've danced along to that song in the kitchen using a wooden spoon as a microphone/dance partner, but it was so much more fun to dance with Christopher while it was being sung live. Christopher and I normally dance to Love Me Tender but let's face it, Elvis will never sing to us live.
I'm almost a Josh Turner concert expert but not quite. I think I have to attend
a lot a few more just to be sure.
