Meandering ponderings and wonderings on the state of things.

So you thought YOU had a great Valentine's Day

Dear God, Thank you that I live in Nashville. AMEN!!

Last night was the Concert for Asia TN. It was amazing. Several prominent local artists got together and re-created George Harrison's 1971 Concert for Bangladesh. That one was to fight hunger; this one benefited the Red Cross's Tsunami Relief efforts. It featured Ben Folds, Phil Keaggy, David Mead, Jonell Mosser, Annie Sellick, Marcus Hummon, Jason White, and Matthew Ryan, among others. If you weren't there, you just missed out. This city is amazing, and this was one of the best concerts I've seen here.

Gene Miller and Phil Keaggy on "Oh Darlin'", which was a last-minute fill-in to stretch the show.

Phil Keaggy on "While My Guitar Gently Weeps". If you've never seen Phil play, go see him. Mel and I were proud to explain who he is to the people next to us, who had never seen him but loved his performance. He is one of the best guitar players who ever lived. He toured with Hendrix, who called him the best he'd ever seen. Phil is also a Christian. His daughters went to my high school, and I was privileged to sing with our chorus in a performance of his song "And on That Day". Also, he played in our talent show, of which I was assistant director, and watched the show from backstage with me. Very nice man. Go see him perform.

Jonell Mosser on "Jumpin' Jack Flash". She's somewhere between where Janis Joplin left off and Bonnie Raitt picks up. Will definitely go see her again.

David Mead and Phil Keaggy on "Here Comes the Sun". Also David Mead on "Just Like a Woman". Ben Folds on "Something". And most of the whole company on "Come Together" as a finale.

Okay, okay, I could go on all day. But for all of you who thought you had a great Valentine's eating a candlelit dinner and watching "The Notebook", I just have to say, in the immortal words of Dave Barry, "Neener neener neener."
