Boy, I don't even know where to start!

I've had a couple people ask me about my favorite things that happened on this trip or my favorite interview. I don't know that I can answer that question. It was all fun. The only thing was: a.) not enough sleep and b.) bad internet in my room! (I think that was due to radio stations from all over the country doing exactly what I've been doing).

Yesterday's interview session was incredible. We had some great interviews and I think the one that surprised me the most was Ronnie Milsap. I never in my life thought I would be able to interview him - and I did!!!! That was pretty cool for me.

I know this will have no surprise to anyone but my favorite interview of the entire session was probably Eric Church! Yes, it's because I'm an crazy Eric Church fan. But I hadn't talked to him since his new CD, Chief, came out so it was fun to talk about that.

And then - I interviewed Faith Hill yesterday. OK, so that was nuts. We were invited to a party at her house (seriously and I will blog about that with photos but for some reason I can't upload photos!) so my sister and I actually talked to her at the party. It was at a very old farmhouse and I was fascinated by it. So Faith told us the house was built in 1840 and it's kind of like more of a weekend house for them (from what I hear it's kind of Tim's hangout)...and they have another house on the property where Hank Sr. lived AND The Battle of Franklin in the Civil War also took place on the property. It was really interested to talk to her about the yesterday I wanted to make sure to thank her for inviting us to her party. So here comes Faith Hill to my broadcast area (she looked beautiful and is very thin actually) and before I could say thank you she said "Carol, thank you so much for coming to my house last night!".

I about fell over.

Faith Hill thanked ME for coming to her house. Then after the interviewed she thanked my sister for coming to her party AND told us both how much she enjoyed talking about the history of the property with us.

Then last night we actually saw Ronnie Dunn at The Stage. RONNIE DUNN AT THE STAGE! There was probably 300 people there and I thought he would probably do four or five songs and he played an entire set. I think he played about an hour and a half or so. Lots of Brooks and Dunn songs and they were shooting a new video since they sang one of his new songs three times. :) I will post some video of it when I get home.

I will get a couple more blogs together with pictures from the party; video from a visit to James Stroud's house and video from last night too. I'm at the airport now waiting for my flight so it might have to wait until I get home.
