Magic at the Shoals

Rick and I got up this morning and headed for Muscle Shoals.  It's less than two hours away and a pretty drive.  It was cloudy, muggy and a few showers falling, but the closer we got to the Shoals the more the sun began to shine.  I took it as a good omen.

We went to see some friends Christine Olhman, Kelvin Holly and Kim Stovall.  Christine and Kelvin are musicians ( Google them) and Kim is truly a musician's best friend and just an all around good person.  Christine and Kelvin did a small show at Counts Brothers Music Store there in Muscle Shoals.  Almost everyone there was a fellow musician ( that's when you know you are in a magical place when other musicians  fill the room to hear you.)

Christine and Kelvin did not disappoint, with their stories and their music.  She is one of the most emotional, incredible singers and songwriters that I have ever heard.  Kelvin's fingers dance on guitar strings and if he wasn't such a nice guy, you'd be green with envy.

About midway through the show Travis Wammack  joined Christine and they did a song he wrote called Greenwood Mississippi. Google Travis and the song.  I know I am asking you to Google a lot, but you have to read about these folks to understand how much talent was there.  Just think of it as Music Appreciation 101 tonight.   :)

So our hump day has been awesome, we both are still smiling.  And oh yeah, we had lunch at a wonderful coffee house,  Rivertown.  Great food and coffee.
Time for a goodnight's sleep.

Goodnight, Sweet dreams
