here's my list:

Loverboy (I was sixteen!)

Willie Nelson (in fact, I have seen him more times than anyone else)

Randy Travis (I took my mom)

Huey Lewis and the News

James Taylor

Edwin McCain (wait, I have seen him more times than Willie Nelson because he lives in my hometown)

Over the Rhine

other than some lesser known bands and local bands ... and Cornerstone Festival for two years, that's about it.

I am impressed. I envy that you saw Simon and Garfunkel. I've only been to about ten concerts.

You've seen Duncan Sheik!? Back when he had that one hit, or more recently . . . ?

Great series of posts, my friend. What an honor . . .
