Last night was so cool. For those of you not in the know- Candice and I also love bands that are not Country! We went and saw one of our most favourite bands ouside of Country in the entire world, the one and only Hanson!... I know what you must be thinking but really, they are no longer the "mmmbop" boys and have come so so far since then and been through so much crap getting there- but thats a rant for another time.
What are the chances of that!! They are playing in Nashville the same time we are here!!!
We got there a little after 5pm and joined our friends at the front of the line and proceeded to wait. A little while after that our pizza showed up ( Our friends had orded pizza for dinner). Pappa Johns... it was really, really good pizza! I enjoyed it immensly! We ate and then a little while after that- Hanson showed up!
The guys along with Mark Hudson, Victoria Shaw and Gary Burr took to the stage just after 7:30pm- Victoria was the "hostess with the mostess" for the night and gave a detailed introduction for each songwriter- ask me to repeat it now and I wouldn't have a clue what she said, to be honest, I was too busy trying to look like I wasn't staring at the boys... I was failing miserably. They're so nice to look at, especially up close
. They played a round and Hanson's first song was 'A Song To Sing'... I nearly died. It's one of my favourite songs of theirs and I'd never heard it live until now. The next song they played was technically Mark Hudson's song but considering he wrote it with Hanson back in 1998, he let them sing it- Where's The Love. After that was Penny and Me then MMMBop. They finished with a new song, never been recorded, called Carry You There (fell in love with it) and then a group effort of Living on The Edge by Areosmith that Mark Hudson wrote.

I think I've died and gone to heaven
By this time, my boots have decided to protest standing for 3 hours by slowly murdering my feet and making it's way up my legs and to my lower back. I was also dying of thirst. The show finished and the performers vanished "back stage" and we made our way out of the club.
Today has been spent laying the first vocal tracks and let me just say, they're sounding bloody awesome. Might be blowing our own horn a little here but I'm really proud of what we've done so far and having a fantastic time doing it!! Nothin wrong with that eh!!
I've found a new love for double stuffed oreos and choc banana pop tarts
... I can just hear my mum saying "they'll go straight to your hips!!" Love you Mum! hehe.
