Dixieland Delight

Tuesday night Fletcher and I went to "Bama Rising" a concert to benefit the tornado victims. The concert was put together by the band Alabama, who hadn't played since their farewell tour in 2003! There were tons of great artists there and it was so fun! The concert lasted until 1 AM, so being the grandma and grandpa that we are we were struggling, but it was worth it! Here was the line up:

The Blind Boys of Alabama (had never heard of them until the concert!)
Rodney Atkins
Ashton Shepherd
Bo Bice
Dierks Bentley
Luke Bryan
Taylor Hicks
Montgomery Gentry
Jake Owen
Sheryl Crow
Kellie Pickler
David Nail
Little Big Town
Sara Evans
Darius Rucker
Martina McBride
Brad Paisley

Least favorite performer of the night: Taylor Hicks

Absolute Favorite Performance of the night...Martina McBride!

I have always loved Martina McBride, but I wasn't expecting her to be my favorite. She blew everyone else out of the water!

And of course Brad Paisley doesn't ever disappoint! He didn't take the stage until after midnight, but it was still great! The concert ended with his "Old Alabama" song and Alabama came in at the end and sang with him.
