I hadn't been to a gospel concert for years. It was 1999, I believe, when I last went to a concert. That was to listen to The Trio, made up of Anthony Burger, Kirk Talley, and Ivan Parker. I loved it. I was fascinated by Mr. Burger's piano playing!
Never had a good chance to make it to another one til last Sunday. The Booth Brothers were in Akron, CO. The Booth Brothers are currently our favorite gospel group. I love almost every song they sing. FYI: My Cowboy and I grew up listening to southern gospel, and we continue to love it. There are a few contemporary/praise songs we will listen to, but our gospel music consists primarily of southern gospel. So if you like 'breathy' singing - you're at the wrong place. :) All you will find here are hymns and 4-part harmony. Alot of high tenor and some deep bass. :)
So, last Sunday My Cowboy and I took the kids, and drove to Akron. It was a beautiful day, and we were excited to actually meet the Booth Brothers in person. We didn't mind the drive over there at all.
When I went out during Intermission, the sun was blood-red. My camera wouldn't capture the color, unfortunately...

Micheal Booth was tearin' it up! Jenni was delighted to get to shake hands with her favorite Booth Brother (Micheal) not once, but twice! :)
The 3.5 hour drive home that night was rather long. We made it home at 1:30 am, which is unheard of for us early risers, but well worth it.
Now if we could just persuade them to come to Laramie next year.
