Well hey there! Twice in one week...it's easier to post on here than try and scan the boards and figure out what's what. Since we don't have any new music dates/tour etc. for Josh, I thought I'd post the people I HAVE seen in concert which includes those I've seen and am planning on seeing so far in 2010. I've actually got quite a few coming up recently. My best friend will be visiting for a quick 48 hour trip this weekend so I'll get to see her and then I have an after work Monday night show in Portland for Jamie Cullum. I normally do NOT do general admission shows. I'm just less comfortable with the venues and don't like having to show up early to score a good spot at the front (plus I'm vertically challenged) but I gave it my first shot this year when I went to see Josh Turner and got a meet and greet through his fan club. So great. For Jamie, I'm willing to go cuz for one thing he's a Brit who doesn't come over to our side of the globe all that oft. so I figure this will be my only chance probably ever to see him. Then next Friday back to Portland for George Strait and Reba McEntire (LeeAnn Womack opening) I've seen Reba before but I have been DYING FOREVER to see George Strait and he's rocking that semi retiredish thing now where he doesn't tour very often and to too many places so again, probably one of my only chances to see him too. April 2 is Michael Buble and I have been dying to see him too. The last time Buble was in Portland it was going to be shortly after I moved here but I already had a ticket to see Josh in Portland that same week and then back to Anaheim, CA for Josh a few days later so it was just bad timing though I would have loved to. So ready for Buble! It is my early birthday present to me (23 on April 11) Then I get a nice break and don't have anything set until May 22 for Tim McGraw and Lady Antebellum (crossing my fingers to get fan club meet and greet) and a mini road trip on Memorial Day weekend to Everett, WA for Carrie Underwood one of the only 2 (Josh included) I'll travel out of state for.
