TBF - I really love Judy Collins, she has such a beautiful voice. How was Stephen's voice ?

We saw Rick Springfield "Stripped" in a much smaller venue 2 nights later. He's a great storyteller and a pretty funny guy. He knows he's an 80's cliché and just embraces it. His mashup for Jessie's Girl, Stacy's Mom, and 867-5309 is absolutely hilarious!
DS - So happy you had such a great time ! Billy always buts on an awesome show. I hope to see him sometime this year at MSG.

Her voice was just as beautiful in her 70’s as it was when she was starting out. Stephen’s voice wasn’t quite as strong in his solo songs as it was back in the CSN&Y days. However in their duets, their voices were perfect. They are great storytellers and quite funny. He mentioned how much he enjoys having young children with his lovely wife, and that he feels very blessed. It was a fantastic concert I’m grateful to have gone to.

I'm so glad Kix and Ronnie are back together. I knew that wasn't going to last even though they broke up for 5 years before they got back together in 2015. I love their music.

I've never seen Reba, Brooks & Dunn or George in concert. They have came to MS, but I wasn't allowed to see them in concert back in the 90s and I don't think they ever been back here.

Have fun, HB. Good to hear from you.

Hope you have a great time HB!

I have seen Reba, Brooks & Dunn and George Strait "back in the day" at Walt Garrison's All Star Rodeo for the Multiple Sclerosis Society at the Mesquite Championship Rodeo, all on separate dates of course. And George many times since. They all put on great shows and now have more songs to add to their repertoire.
