One advantage of living in a bigger city is the many music options. The night before we headed to San Francisco we went to see Bon Jovi at the arena with Mike, Lori, Larry and Kristy. Bon Jovi has been playing hits for 25 years and they always play a great selection of all their hits, as well as their newest album. I've been a fan for many years and Bryan has come around to appreciating their music more since working with Billy Falcon - one of their songwriters. We've even had a few opportunities to go to "after the show" parties and Bryan and Mike have had the opportunity to play music with Jon and Richie when they are in town. They are really great guys who do a lot for their community and many charities.
Linda, Lisa, Chassi and I also went to see the Goo Goo Dolls recently at the Ryman. The Ryman has fabulous acoustics and it's one of my favorite music venues. My cousins Brenda and Beth were originally going to come go with us to the show, but with the horrible weather they were unable to make it. We will just have to plan another cousins music outing soon!
Music city had a lot of damage to the Opry house and several other great music venues, but they will rebuild and be even better than before I'm sure. This town was built on music!
