Notes from the show:
Six rows from the stage at Austin City Limits, that’s where I was.
Not an “old married boomers” crowd, but “thirty-somethings” Girls Night Out amidst the date-night couples.
She sang from 8:15 pm until 10:05 PM. Without stopping.
She took requests. And told stories. And made us laugh and feel as if we were all her friends.
That’s a talent, too.
Her voice was better than ever.
My ticket, for those of you who have asked, was $69.00.
This song, one of my all-time favorite songs in the whole world, was the third song she sang that night. I was ever so relieved. And I tried very hard not to cry.
