A group of friends and Mr. Brad Paisley

For the first time in a LONG time we went to a concert last Thursday. I think the last concert I saw was Green Day? That was at least 13 years ago. before that, Milli Vanilli and The New Kids. Oh yeah, and Tiffany. And Vanilla Ice. HA. Funny but true. So anyway, Jon & I went with Nicole and Adam, Brittani & Wes, and Leslie and Eric to see Brad Paisley. He was touring with Taylor Swift and Rodney Atkins. It was a surprisingly good concert...we had a lot of fun, despite having to walk all the way from downtown Roanoke to the Civic Center in the cold. Taylor was good - I decided I liked her, and even more unusual was that Jon decided HE liked her, too. And Rodney Atkins won us over with his down home friendly sort of demeanor. Then of course Brad was great, a really elaborate set up, and he spent a lot of time singing - often without his band. He seemed like a real person, which is a big deal in his line of work.

Here are a couple of pics from the advice? Go see this concert if it is coming anywhere near you. It's definitely worth the ticket price.
