My "Welcome Christmas" show

Over 20 years ago,  we began doing Christmas shows together. I now have to do it every year. It is the real beginning of the season for me each year.  Can NOT miss it. The show is different each year, depending on who happens to be on town.

Me and Mel are in our seats and ready. I got the tickets as a Christmas gift. It was for the 12 Gifts of Christmas Tour.

That tour was cancelled yesterday afternoon. Day before the show. Out of nowhere. By the promoter. Just like that.

But in a matter of a couple short hours, three of the artists, who happen to be my fave three, had been contacted by our radio station here that was hosting the event. And they were gracious and equally disappointed. The artists and JoyFM. Disappointed and stunned.

So tonight was born. Steven Curtis Chapman, his wife and author Mary Beth Chapman, and singer songwriter Laura Story are here. Just of themselves and those they could get on a plane in 24 hours.

Our tickets are being honored for entry, and thousands more hopefuls are waiting around the arena for tickets to fill this place to the rafters.

There aren't any great set lists, there is alot of improvising, the lights and sound aren't as produced as it would have been with more notice but no worry. We will have a great show and sing along like we love to do!

Let the concert begin!! No silly slacker promoter is gonna take my Christmasy evening away!!
