Last night Jonathan took me to a George Strait concert. Fun, fun, crazy fun.
I don't quite know why my love of George has followed me since my childhood, when my love of The Bangles and Debbie Gibson has faded. :-)
My first George Strait cassette tape was his 1985 Greatest Hits album that I took from my Grandma's house. At the time, I was in Elementary School, and George reminded me of my Uncle Craig. In reflection, there probably weren't any real similarities, besides they were both handsome men in boots and dusty black cowboy hats. It was enough for a connection when I was seven I guess.
The concert was great. I was totally impressed with his band and with his sound. My love for George continues strong.
The concert was a present for my upcoming 30th birthday. My age was confirmed when during the encore, I stood up to clap. I think my main motivation for standing was to stretch my back. It's hard for old people to sit in one place that long.
Awesome! George is timeless! Or, maybe that's just what old people say. Hope you have a great birthday.
