Demoted from 'Two Week Waiter' to 'Waiting to O'er'

In other news... because I sorely need the distraction...

This girl? She's going to see George Canyon tonight. Now, if you don't listen to Country music, or hail from Nova Scotia, you probably have no idea who GC is. He was the runner up in the second season of Nashville Star (the American Idol of Country music), and has gone on to release a couple of amazing albums (he has three total - one from before the show - Edit: I forgot about the Christmas album - so four total) and win quite a few awards for his music. Amazing amazing performer.

GC also has a special place in my heart for writing and recording a beautiful song called "My Name". Here's what he says about the song on his web site:
A close friend and his wife had a miscarriage, and I witnessed the pain they went through losing a baby. I wanted to write a song to help people cope with that trauma and somehow bring a positive light to the subject
Do not, I repeat DO NOT listen to this song if you're in a fragile emotional state. I can't listen to it without bawling on the best of days.

So yeah, I'm going to see him tonight. And I! Am! So! Excited!

  4. Aw, have a GREAT time. I have met George and he is a really fantastic guy as well as a terrific performer. He is my boss's brother in law and he came and played for us at our grand opening. Another baller song of his is "I want you to live"; not for the faint of heart.
