Miranda Lambert is My New Hero...Well, Is Still My Hero...

Ok, the concert was FANTASTIC!!!!! Any gal who can belt a song the way she does is tops in my book, not to mention she's not just another pretty face...she rocks! Miranda Lambert is a little bit country and a little bit rock and roll!

And, it has to be said, that she is a role model for all women of any age. My favorite part of the entire concert was when she told all the ladies to "Drive what your momma gave ya'!" Miranda is no size zero waif, awaiting a brisk breeze to whisk her off stage. She prided herself several times for the fact that she loves potatos and gravy, chicken and biscuits. Girls, we do not have to be tiny to be beautiful, successful, happy people...thanks Miranda!

What's more, she's in love with an Okie...and it just doesn't get any better than that! (I should know...have had thirty years of first hand experience!) I guess there's something to be said for those southern Illinois, Madison county boys as well...

Eric and I had a wonderful time just hanging out, singing along with our favorite Miranda songs, and just basking in one another's kid-free company. Then, during the encore, ML breaks out the classic 80's rock song..."I Love Rock 'N Roll!" AWESOME!
