A Night of Country Music in 16th Century Spain

Yes, you read the title correctly for this post!

Friday night Christy and I went to see Joey Martin in Concert (with Rory Feek and Wynn Varble) at the Anderson Paramount Theatre benefiting Families Forever Ministry

Above is a picture of the theater from the stage.  Click here to see some more amazing pictures of this facility.  Their brochure says:

An Eberson designed atmospheric theater (1 of 12 left in US & Canada)

The 1,458 wine-colored velvet covered seats replicated to historical accuracy.

Forty-one paint colors and a fortune in gold leaf were used in the Theatre restoration.

The Grande PAGE Organ is a three manual, twelve rank instrument (1 of 3 such theatre organs in the US).

I don't really know what all that means but it is a phenomenal setting!  Christy said the setting made up for her lack of (but growing) appreciation of country music.

Rory and Wynn are best known as songwriters but the setting was relaxed and with just their acoustic guitars it made for some pure country music and great stories! Both have several #1 songs with artists including Randy Travis, Blake Shelton, Garth Brooks, Darryl Worley, Brad Paisley, and many, many more.

Families Forever is a neat ministry in Anderson providing FREE counseling to anyone who needs it for any reason.  They are trying to expand into prevention work as well but that is taking some time!
