This Past Weekend in OK & TX
Mon., Sep. 8. 2008 12:13am EDT
Oklahoma and Texas may not get along when it comes to college football, but they work well together on our concert schedule. This past April, we played a Friday in Weatherford OK and a Saturday in Gonzales TX (about an hour from the University of Texas). This past weekend, we played Friday in Noble OK (about five minutes from the University of Oklahoma) and Saturday in Stamford TX.
Both weekends shared more than the fabled Red River Rivalry. They also had the following in common: lively crowds, kindly hosts, and likely return trips.
Here's an excerpt from an email we received from the coordinator of the concert in Noble:
Everybody is still buzzing about the concert Friday night. Because of the success of it, we are talking about forming a regular Friday night concert series about every two or three months. I appreciate the genuine spirit that each one of you guys have. Again it was a pleasure to work with you. I pray for nothing but the best for each one of you. I hope we can do it again sometime!
Pastor Dean Guthrie
We are so thankful that you were willing to come to our middle of nowhere town. It was really great fun! The kids were still wired on Sunday morning. Everyone is already looking forward to a concert next year. Thank you, thank you, thank you! God bless your work and your families. We will talk to you soon.Special thanks to:
Our concert coordinators: Pastor Dean Guthrie (Noble); and Kim Meredith (Stamford).
Our merchandise coordinators: Joy, Kate, and Debbie (Noble); and Joyce and Marie (Stamford).
Our chauffeurs: Dean and D.J. (Noble); and Amanda and Fonda (Stamford).
Honorable mention to: Darrell "Maddog" Doesken, his wife, Mary Beth, and son, David (a.k.a. "Foghat"), who drove from Wichita KS to see us play in Noble OK. Also to Eddy and Kenneth Joe Scarberry, who have seen us all 11 times we've played in Oklahoma, and to Tom (a.k.a. "Tim") and Mickey (a.k.a. "Xena") Hall, who have seen us almost every single time we've been to the Sooner State.
