Wonderful Tonight

Jason and I had a fantastic time in Nashville yesterday! We got into town a few hours early, walked around downtown, and then had dinner at the Spaghetti Factory (YUM!!!) and walked on over to the arena.  I'm actually not sure what it is called now, because I hear it is going through another name change. Anyway, Jason was so excited all day, and he was even more excited when we got to our seats.

Roger Daltrey came out first, and Jason was entirely in a different world.  He was so excited, and took a billion pictures.  I promise I won't bore you with all of them, just a few!:)
This was our view from our seats WITHOUT zoom at all! 
Eric Clapton finally came out, and Jason's excitement went to a whole new level.  He kept leaning over and saying: "This is so awesome! Thank you!!" It was really cute to hear how much he loved his gift.
I must say, Clapton is an incredible guitarist.  It was really neat to hear him just play.
One of my favorite parts of the show was the acoustic part.  He just sat down and started playing, and it was very relaxing.
The coolest part of the acoustic section was when he brought out Vince Gill! He just walked on out, sat down, and started playing his guitar right along side Eric Clapton.  Clapton must have known he had to throw a country star out there to really get Nashville going.  Vince Gill never sang, but he was really great on guitar, which I never knew!
I also included a video of my most favorite moments of the show.  This is my absolute favorite Eric Clapton song.  I have a few more videos of some other great parts as well, but rather than overload you, I'll just share them every once in a while, or I'll send you the YouTube link if you just can't wait! :)

It was definitely a perfect night, that my husband can't stop talking about.  
Surprise gift=success. :)
