After spending the night at home in Nashville, we flew to Atlanta for a gig at Chastain Park. It is an amphitheatre within the park and the floor seating is made up of picnic tables and chairs. Ticket holders bring candles, tablecloths, wine and dinner and the whole thing is very relaxed. Along with the tiered seating, we had an audience of 7,000 tonight that was there to have a good summer evening's entertainment. I'd say we both held up our ends of the deal. I remember Chastain being a great gig in 2001 and it did not disappoint us tonight.
From the stage we were taken back to the G4 where G&T's were waiting along with steak, salad and mashed potatoes. A short flight back to Nashville where we will spend another night and play the Ryman Auditorium tomorrow night. We're all looking forward to that show which will benefit the Chet Atkins Foundation. The Country Music Hall of Fame here in Nashville, is graciously lending two of Chet's guitars for Mark and I to play on a couple songs tomorrow night!
