Lady Gaga, Lindsey Stirling, Led Zeppelin, Lenny Kravitz… La Bamaba, LA Woman, Love Will Keep Us Together, Love Shack… live music, lyrics, largo, lyre… listen to the music.

Ok, I have a confession.  I was once young, foolish and reckless.  Another confession I was heavily into country music in the early 80s – the time of “country rock.”  This is how the two met one day.

A very small county fair had a concert my friend called me about.  It was Louise Mandrell.  You may recall her sister Barbara as the more famous sister, but Louise did ok for herself too.  Anyway, my friend and I went to the fair in a small-town west of us.

Louise put on a great show.  We didn’t have the greatest seats, but we were not blind, she had a cute band member or two.  So, the time in the show where she introduces the band came and my friend and I were very vocal about each introduction.  Finally, Louise said we should come on up stage and meet them.  Oh – my – goodness, we did!  My friend took the lead I ran to catch up and a third girl ran up on stage with us.  We started on the left side of the stage and went around to each band member to get hugs and handshakes. Then we hopped down and went back to our seats.

After the show we got autographs of most of the band.  And it was a night we will never forget… besides we can’t there were pictures taken.  Ha, ha!

I am guessing videos were not big in the career of Louise, as a search came back with few choices.  Here is one of her covering a rock song originally by Dave Edmunds.
