Cinderella having a ball at the Alan Jackson Concert (turn on your sound)
An evening with Alan Jackson and my sista………
While it’s not my first concert, or my second, (my sista and I go as often as we can), I will admit the thrill is always the same when attending an Alan Jackson concert. And lucky for me, he tends to come to New England just in time for my birthday and my sister, in what has become an annual tradition, was able to secure tickets once again this year. Not just any tickets, my sista researches, analyzes and scours the internet for up front, on the floor seats, so that our aging eyes and ears get a good view of all the action and puts us close to the stage for what has to be one of greatest country music sing-a-longs northeast of Nashville. While Ada is a fan, her sister is what we call, a Superfan. Jokingly, I refer to her as an AJ stalker, but it’s all in good fun for sure. Simply, just two country music fans that have loved the sound of a talented lyricist that has been singing about life and “Livin on love”, and “Remembering when”. Performing to sold out crowds made up of the young and the young at hearts, last night we truly appreciated a career that has spanned more than 20 years and 50 million albums sold….. and still touring strong. His "Freight Train" tour pulled into Manchester, New Hampshire for one night and hopefully it will pull into a station near you too....Don't miss it if it does.
