best concert ever (honest!)

I surprised Chris with what I thought would be a good gift for him this past Valentine's Day!

He has LOVED Alison Kraus for years! I have listened to her since the early 90s, so i was very excited too.....and she doesn't tour often. When I heard she was coming to Columbus, I knew I had to at least try to get tickets!

so....I got tickets! When Chris opened the Valentine's card I fully expected him to be happy and excited! I completely under-estimated how happy he would be. He was speechless!! Score one for Heather! Woo hoo!

He sat there.....and just stared at it in complete disbelief, I thought he might cry. LOL. He has always said (in a weird, morbid way) that he would want her to sing at his funeral. Her music is that beautiful and haunting to him. So, in the card, I wrote "I didn't want you to have to wait until you were dead to hear her sing. Surprise!"

He was beyond excited, he hadn't even heard she was coming to Columbus, so it that much more of a complete surprise to him.

Neither of us could wait to hear if she sounded as good in person as she does on the radio. I mean, who REALLY has such a perfect, angelic voice? She does, and it was.....

Simply, the best concert ever. It was just Alison Kraus & Union Station and a few stools. No smoke, no wind machines or laser show. Just simple instruments and her beautiful voice.

It was such a fun date night, and I loved the concert as much as he did. She sang all of my favorites, old and new. She was flawless, and most likely the most talented person either of us have ever seen or heard in real life. Period. Sheer talent.

And a seldom seen pic of US! Very blurry, please forgive me! I still like this pic of us. :)

Chris always gets me the best gifts, so i was very happy to make him speechless for once! He tried to top it with the gift he gave me, he came close, but not quite... ;) that's my next post.

Have you ever heard her voice? You will love. Promise.
