Date Night consisted of a magnificent dinner of tasty chicken marsala and pork-stuffed tortellini at Sweet Magnolia, followed by a good old fashioned pickin' party.
I didn't have many expectations as I entered into the theatre to hear a concert by a bluegrass superstar.
I really just wanted to hear that banjo song from Deliverance.
You know the one.....deuling banjos?
Well, it didn't happen.
I did hear a whole lot of music from Grammy-award winning artist, Ricky Skaggs and his band Kentucky Thunder. And although bluegrass isn't really my thing, it proved to be a pretty awesome show that had me toe-tapping along with the packed crowd by the end of the night.
I also heard a lot of down-home Kentucky quips that Mr. Skaggs shared as he sang on stage, like:
"I'm busy! I'm busier than a one-eyed cat watching two rat-holes!"
"I'm in a hurry! I've got to get to the train station and help my one-armed brother with two suitcases!"
You know those are funny.
I plan to use them as often as possible.
