Above with Laura is a beautiful young woman named Jordyn Mallory. She is even more talented than she is pretty, if you can believe that! She is beating the streets in Nashville urging her dream into fruition. She and Laura know each other through the power of social networking and through their shared love of country music. Someday you will hear Jordyn Mallory on the radio and I am proud to say I heard her when.
Now, we didn't get to spend very much time with Kylee in Tootsie's. She was busy doing this:
Sorry for the poor photo quality. It was like a covert operation to take iPhone pictures of the lovebirds on the sly! Yep, she found herself a cowboy! Actually he turned out to be a Chicago boy via San Francisco, but close enough, right? She was over there "true-lovin'" on him for sure! Sadly, the clock has struck midnight and we are still waiting to hear the words "Happily Ever After". I'll keep you posted!
On to Night 2's concert we went! On Night 2 we enjoyed a pregnant Ashton Shepherd, Dierks Bentley, and Lady Antebellum. Um, hellooooo! They are super-talented, but there is also a permeable CHEMISTRY among them that suggests Hillary Scott may write their lyrics from experience...I'm just sayin'...Next up was the always-on-point Sugarland, Keith Urban, and Reba. Y'all. Seriously. All those amazing artists in one night? Someone pinch me! And this is only halfway through the weekend!
We are definitely winding down. We are hot and tired and now constantly hungry. So we rolled in for lunch at Margaritaville. Hello Margaritas! I may replace my Crystal Bowersox love with you!

No, I didn't make that video, but we did have really great seats--especially considering they were free! Here's how the stage looked each night as we took our seats:
Okay, so continuing the show after that crazy-cool Little Big Town performance was Martina McBride. Girl's got some pipes, y'all! And she brought out a surprise guest, Lauren Alaina to duet "Dream It Anyways" with her! The crowd went wild.
