Not exactly a topic for the farm site, but WOW!!!! May 1st and 2nd, 2010, Nashville and the surrounding areas experienced a 1,000 year flood damaging many renowned landmarks, destroying many businesses and leaving 100s homeless.
In response to those people still struggling from the destruction from the floods, Garth Brooks decided to have a benefit concert in Nashville with 100% of proceeds going back into the communty. Within minutes the tickets sold out. Garth than added 8 more shows which were all sold out within hours. Last night, we attended the only evening weekend concert and MAN DID GARTH DELIVER AN AWESOME SHOW!
Garth performed many of his classics (The Thunder Rolls, Rodeo, The Dance, The Beaches of Cheyenne, Callin’ Baton Rouge, Friends in Low Places, etc.) and even sat down for one song to listen to the audience sing back the lyrics to him. Everyone was on their feet for the entire event. He included his lovely wife, Trisha Yearwood in a wonderful duet.
The entire evening was magical, the lighting was fabulous, the band was superb, the stage was set-up in a manner for maximum visibility and Garth’s voice was as clear, strong and crisp as ever. The concert was being filmed for our troops overseaes which made the event so much more special. GARTH AND TRISHA, YOU ARE A TREASURE AND NASHVILLE THANKS YOU FOR YOUR GIFT TO HELP THOSE THROUGH AN UNPRECEDENTED FLOOD.
