Gossip in the Grain

This past weekend, the boyfriend (CC) and I celebrated our anniversary by taking a trip to Nashville, TN to see our friend Blaze and to see Ray LaMontagne perform at the Ryman Auditorium (amazing, amazing). Ray's new cd just came out last week and he performed mostly songs from that and some older favorites. I cannot describe how good this show was in words. I also can't really describe it with this video because it was taken with my crappy camera and the sound is ehh, but here is a teaser of how amazing this musician is.

His voice... I'm glad you can't hear me singing along. My favorites so far off the album are 'Sarah' and 'I Still Care for You'. Leona Naess opened for him and she is adorable. I would kill to have legs like hers, but she is an amazing singer as well. My favorite song of hers is 'Not the Same Girl'. Well worth 99 cents for an itunes download.

Gossip indeed. I love Ray- have you heard his duet (appropriately called "Duet") with Rachael Yamagata on her new album? God I love Nashville.

Do we get to pick our own blog nicknames? Because it sounds like "Blaze" is using her gladiator name from college. I want my name to be "Snickerdoodle" -- wait, did that ruin the anonymity?

Done and done Marth, I mean Snickerdoodle. I can't remember my gladiator name, I think maybe "Flash"?
