Music in the dome

Ronnie Milsap and George Strait in the Tacoma Dome. Sorry, we got there too late to hear Taylor Swift open--the traffic turned a ten minute segment of the road into a two hour segment--but hearing Ronnie sing Smokey Mountain Rain, made it all better.

Highlights: Cowboys Like Us (one of my favorite George Strait songs), and his encore surprise rendition of Folsom Prison Blues.

Issues: the obnoxious acoustics in the dome and the one problem I have with George anyway--he's a more-of-the-same artist, probably why he's so successful. He never fails to appeal to the hardcore traditionalist country music fans. I'm afraid I'm not quite in that category.

Good times though. Thanks for securing the tickets Jackie.

You saw George Strait!! Okay I'm jealous. I'm not like a hard fan of his, but I do love some of his songs.
