Hooray for Ray!

Tonight, the Mr. and I are headed to downtown Phoenix for a once-in-a-lifetime experience... Our first official Ray Lamontagne concert!

Ray holds such a special place in my heart- our wedding song was "You Are The Best Thing", which is bright and upbeat and totally embodies how that day felt to me.

Any time I listen to him, my heart feels like it swells tenfold. I find his music so soothing and inspiring. If I've had a bad day, you can guarantee that it will be chased with a glass of Makers on the rocks and a session of Ray on full-blast.

This isn't technically our first Ray concert, to be honest... We were lucky enough to get a taste of Ray a few years ago, as he was the musical guest on the Saturday Night Live episode we attended the taping of. So amazing on so many levels... Every time I think about hearing Ray *and* seeing John Hamm up close, all in one night, I think my head might explode into little bits of candy... We were {thisclose} to seeing a full Ray concert last year, but my surprise ticket purchase was felled by a last-minute business trip to London. I was dev-uh-stated.

Tonight's concert has been a LONG time coming, and I'm excited beyond words.

I can't wait to tell you all about the evening!

Oh my goodness- my absolute FAVORITE song. It makes me happy every time I hear it and I can't wait til I one day get married so I can dance to it at my wedding, as well. It's perfect :-)

Not to sounds like a total crazy but I LOVE RAY. Really - he is my favorite and I've contemplated flying cross country to see him on tour with David Gray this summer. I went to my first Ray concert in '08 and we got 3rd row dead center and it was the BEST concert I've ever seen. I basically cried the whole time and I'm pretty sure my fiance was questioning my sanity...ha! I am so excited for you!!

I heard this song earlier today, fell totally in love with it, & was prepared to search for who sang it. Then you popped up in my feed!


Have a wonderful time!

Ray at the Hollywood Bowl is, from what I hear, about the best summer experience you can have in LA. I hope to go next year. Have a blast!
