Callin' Baton Rouge

SUCH a great concert! No opening band, just Garth and his band for 2 1/2 hours. All the good ones, some new ones, and some with his wife Trisha Yearwood. He's one of my favorite performers, and the only performer I'm aware of that doesn't have any of his music on itunes, barely has a cell phone, and can command an audience of 20,000+ with just him and a guitar. At one point during his show he brought up a Staples food services employee, Alva. She sat through a song on stage, then he gave her his hat. SO sweet...probably the highlight of her life! I wonder how much that hat would go on ebay for.....
Anyways -- great concert, the $10 mil proceeds went to the firefighters of the wildfires in CA.
