So what was James' show all about? Well.....he is the lead singer in a Johnny Cash Tribute band. James has been a fan of Johnny Cash since he was like 11. Actually, the word "fan" may not really describe his love for Johnny Cash and his music. When we were National FFA Officers, James would get out his guitar and sing one Johnny Cash song after another. If it hadn't been for him, I probably would never know any songs by the great Man in Black. In fact, when Soil Stud and I were married, James, Andy, Emily (another FFA teammate) and I sang a few Johnny Cash tunes at the reception!
Soil Stud and I were running late, so my sweet guy dropped me off at the Woodstock Opera House front door so I wouldn't miss James coming out on stage!
Shortly after intermission, in the words of my friend, Andy, I had to save the show!
At this point I felt like I was in a Ring of Fire - it was hot and I was nervous!
Truth be told, it was a total blast, so if you are ever at a concert and are asked to sing - DO IT! You'll be glad you did!
After the concert, we went out to share some old stories and new ones!
