face of an angel, pretty eyes that shine...

so one of my favorite singer/songwriters is vince gill. i love his voice, his music, his personality...he is just fabulous to me. my mom called me a couple of months ago and asked if i wanted to go see him in concert---that he was going to be performing an all acoustic show in spartanburg. duh. of course i wanted to go!

so she got online that morning and got the tickets. well, would you believe they were front row seats?!

i must say that it was one of the best concerts i've ever been to. we've seen him before, but this time was completely different. he just sat on an empty stage with 3 band members and half a dozen of his favorite guitars surrounding him and talked to us like we'd been friends for years. he had no playlist, but rather let the audience request his next song. before he'd sing it, though, he would tell us why he wrote it and where his inspirations and stories behind the words came from. it was awesome. i left there feeling like me and ole vince were best pals.

we were close enough to get some great pics and video, but the video seems to be taking too long to upload...
