SO, last Thursday I saw Mariah Carey at Nokia Theater and on Friday I saw Ben Rector at House of Blues. Needless to say, they were both great concerts but completely different! Mariah was such a diva but her voice is just wonderful in person. She sang my favorites "Always Be My Baby" and "Hero" so I left happy! I got to see the concert with Molly, Nicki, and Meagan ...we had a great time!
Mariah came out on a swing that lowered her to the stage and she had on a big "princess" dress on....true Mariah style!
Meagan and I waiting for the concert to start!
Molly, Nicki, MeSo for those of you who don't know, Ben Rector went to the U of A and a member of BYX. I first saw him freshman year at a function called Starbyx. He was the opener for Matt Wertz that night. He has such a great sound and is an amazing piano and guitar player. He often played around Fayetteville and I never missed a concert. He now lives in Nashville, and just released his new Cd "Into the Morning" which you can buy on iTunes and it is WONDERFUL! With all that said, he is touring with Steve Moakler and Andrew Ripp and he came to the House of Blues last Friday......it was a great concert! A few of us that went to the U of A that live in Dallas now, recruited some friends to go as well because we love Ben and they should too! Anyways, long story short we had such a fun night and you all need to GO BUY "INTO THE MORNING" BY BEN RECTOR ON iTUNES TODAY! You won't regret it!
