Wife and I experienced a piece of pure heaven last night. We attended James Taylor's and Carole King's concert in Nashville, part of the "Troubador Reunion" tour.
Although I know every generation thinks the music they listened to in their formative years is the best ever, I challenge anyone to say/think it gets any better than this.
The tunes took me back, of course. Whether it was the radio at summer Boy Scout camp, my bedroom or in the car-- or wearing out the turntable with JT"s Great Hits and Carole King's "Tapestry" -- so many of their songs were the ones that defined my youth and have stayed with me.
"It's Too Late."
"So Far Away."
"Sweet Baby James."
"You've Got a Friend."
"Way Over Yonder."
"Carolina in My Mind."
"Shower the People."
And the hits just keep on coming. You know them, too.
Thanks, my old friends, for a great time last night. Thanks for continuing to ply your trade and give the gift of your amazing talent.
