Some (Live) Country Music

On Sunday evening, Conservative Hubby, T-Bear, Kid Sister, and I (is it just me, or does that sound like a list of characters on a cartoon?) headed to Bloomington for two very important reasons: sushi and country music.

What? You don't think those two go together? I do.

After we had sushi at a new restaurant in B-Town, we were off to the Brad Paisley concert at the U.S. Cellular Coliseum.

It was a great concert. The opening acts, Justin Moore and Miranda Lambert, were pretty good, but Brad Paisley was definitely the headliner for a reason.

I think it helps when you can sing along to every song. And when there are great—but not overdone—effects. And when the fellow up on stage in his Wranglers and cowboy hat is a serious performer.

(And his security folks are also pretty serious too, as evidenced by the woman who jumped up on stage with Paisley and was instantly hauled off by a security guard and a police officer. I have a feeling she regrets that move.)

Even if you're not a huge country fan, you'd have enjoyed the concert. I'm just sure of it.
