In life timing is everything for opportunities – I found out at the last minute that there were two tickets available for Trace Adkins live show at the RNC event in Tampa, FL. Well, my wife Val and I had been avoiding all week going anywhere near the convention center area because we had heard it was going to be crazy. At the last minute when these tickets came available I said to her let’s go…. how many times do you get to go to and Event Like this…DNC or RNC and as some of you know and if you don’t you do now… Even though I grew up on Rap and Rock Music in Connecticut and still do love most of it. At a really low time of my life I had heard a Trace Adkins Song (I want to feel something) that really make me sit up and take attention.
Now – I have seen Trace at the Tampa Bay Ray’s Game and at the Strawberry Festival in Lakeland, FL but for some reason this night felt different and it wasn’t until this song that I knew it (Tough People Do). We just happened to be in the front row for this concert and I was taking pictures with a small camera and decided for some reason to turn on Video and here is what I caught:
I thought the song was awesome and really time appropriate – we are in tough times in this country and I hope that tough people making tough decisions help make this a better place! Trace’s performance was amazing – young and old he brought down the house and Val and I ended up being so glad we stayed for the whole time. Security was tight all around the city and we had no issues whats so ever anywhere at anytime. As a matter of fact we were so surprised on how little protesting we saw….
Thanks for the night Trace, the new song and all the classics we remembered from before… the night was one I will not soon forget and keep the music going…
