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 subjectDo 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!
