Dierks + Miranda = Best Concert Ever!

I saw an Ohio postcard yesterday featuring a covered bridge that said, "Just Another Day in Paradise," and I actually snorted and laughed out loud. Let's be honest, Ohio -- you don't have much on Hawaii! But wait! There are indeed some things that Ohio has going for it over Hawaii, like tons of sandwich shops, several major sports teams and an abundance of concerts and shows!

We went to see Miranda Lambert and Dierks Bentley right here in Dayton this weekend, and I've already bought tickets to see The Lumineers in May and our favorite comedian Daniel Tosh in June. Not many major performers made the trip out to Hawaii, so it's a huge treat that virtually every current band I like seems to be come through Ohio!
I adore Dierks Bentley and have ever since his first single, "What Was I Thinkin' " came out back in 2003. His half of the concert was awesome and he played every single one of the songs I hoped he would. And he managed to look pretty damn attractive while doing it. (Oops, pardon me while I wipe some drool from my chin...) While I'm at it, I should add that my husband -- who dressed for the concert in cowboy boots and a plaid shirt and looked every bit the Southern boy he is -- wasn't too hard to look at either.
I particularly liked seeing "Up On The Ridge" live. The performance reminded me a bit of the frenzied gypsy dancing scene in "Sherlock Holmes: Game of Shadows."
And then out came Miranda Lambert!
After a few songs, she announced that she had a special guest -- her husband, Blake Shelton, who came out on stage and performed his new single "Sure Be Cool If You Did" with Miranda! The crowd -- including me -- went wild screaming and cheering. How often do you actually see the two of them on stage together?
And all three acts (opener Thomas Rhett on the left, Miranda in the middle and Dierks on the right) closed the show with a song together. This might be toppled when we see The Lumineers, but for now I have to say: best concert ever!
