I Spent My Saturday Night Beneath the Light of the Neon Moon...

Yes, I realize how lame that post title is, but this weekend Dave and I channeled our inner rhinestone cowboy and attended the 75th Anniversary Rodeo Austin Gala. It was a wonderful night of people watching (you truly have NO idea!!) complimented by wonderful food, good wine, silent and live auction fun, and fabulous entertainment!

Radney Foster and Ronnie Dunn were the evening's performers and they did not disappoint! I am surprised I wasn't more familiar with Radney Foster. I put a video on my blog a while back of a song he wrote honoring the pilots of the "Angel Flight". These pilots fly home our fallen soldiers and his song brings me to tears every time! He is a wonderful songwriter and several of his hits are currently on the mainstream country charts.

Then, in an effort to go old School, Ronnie Dunn performed. He was awesome! He played a ton of Brooks and Dunn classics and I had the best time singing along to Neon Moon, Boot Scootin' Boogie, My Maria and Brand New Man.

If we ever have the privilege of going again, Dave will need a cowboy hat and I'll need something with a little more sparkle! I think the event needs to be called "Boots and Bling"...Cowgirls don't mess around! ;)


Hope you all had a wonderful weekend!

Seriously?! That's awesome! You guys always do the coolest stuff! I loved Brooks & Dunn from my 6 month cowgirl phase back in junior high. Wow, that really makes me sound old. I loved Neon Moon! I might just have to download a few of their songs to my ipod and relive the glory days.
