Escape to ... Nashville, Part 2

Three posts in one week, what a treat! To wrap up, I just need to talk about the Bluebird Cafe. What a ridiculously incredible experience. If you know anything about music and Nashville, you know that most well known artists and songs have made their debuts in this historic (yet tiny) institution. We knew there was a chance that we wouldn't get in but we took a gamble and arrived at the Bluebird 2 hours before the show was scheduled to start. We couldn't believe it when the hostess came out to tell us that we and the four people behind us were the last to get in. While we had to sit separately, we didn't care. For 2 hours we watched and listened as the amazing female songwriters and their guests took turns singing their songs and telling the stories that inspired them. It was like being a fly on the wall during the most amazing jam session. I don't have a lot of spiritual experiences but this was one. I sang along (quietly), laughed, cried, and smiled the biggest smile knowing that my friends and I were able to share this once-in-a-lifetime experience with each other. Definitely on my top life moments list.
