Take a Chance

Yesterday proved to be an interesting day for me. Our friend and next door neighbor asked if I would do something for her. What I asked? She had to go into Atlanta for an appointment, and her husband could not go so would I go along? Hmmmm, so what is this all about?
A little background......she and her husband are musicians, had their own band playing the locals, and they are actually quite good. They don't really do the band thing anymore, but I guess once you have it in your blood you are always tempted to do it again. She plays the drums, keyboard, sings, very talented, and it just so happened that through the grapevine she heard where someone was needing a drummer. Could she come try out? Jolene was super excited about it so......I guess I could tag along.
What I found out was that we went to an actual recording studio! Now there were about 3 or 4 other drummers there too, but what a rush to be able to try out!
Here she is by herself and then with the lead singer. Now as for the name of the band I have no idea, I only know they sing country and western, and are pretty good at it to have recorded a few albums or cd's or whatever they call it these days!
Jolene went around taking these pictures with my camera as hers went dead.  Now I don't know everyone on these photos, but I did recognize Lee Greenwood, Billy Ray Cyrus, Elton John! 
We don't think that she got the job as there was a very good drummer there, but hey, it was fun!   I told her thanks for inviting me along as this was definitely a once in a lifetime thing.  Pretty cool!

Sounds fun! My youngest daughter wants to be a country singer. She would love an adventure like that. Glad that you had a good time. Carla
