The Country Music Hall Of Fame held a special program yesterday to coincide with the closing of their Bakersfield Sound exhibit at the end of the year. My friend Carco Clave got my daughter and I passes to the show! And we loved it!
Chuck Mead and his Grassy Knoll Boys played
and hosted several special guests. Guests included Suzy Bogguss, Deke Dickerson and James Burton.
If you don't know who these folks are click on their names to learn more they are all awesome!
I asked Aly what her favorite part of the show was and she said "the end." "No no dad I didn't mean it like that..."
What she meant was the finale was spectacular after 90 minutes of great music. All of the performers on one stage was pretty awesome.
An added bonus got to catch up with Nic Abston front man for Hillbilly Casino who also brought his daughter to the show. Great minds think alike.
To top it off today, my heart melted while driving around Nashville Aly asked me if I could turn on some Merle Haggard music.
Thanks Carco Clave for the passes and thanks Country Music HOF for putting on this event. We have to continue to let people know this music is still around and still loved by all.
