Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays ya'll!
During the past week in Las Vegas this rock n' roll chick has gone a little bit country! The National Finals Rodeo was in town and with it brought the annual Cowboy Christmas Convention and Christmas Gift Show. Channeling my inner cowgirl I took a walk about and saw some interesting things. But I tell ya I have had my fill of saddles, stirrups, and lassos! I went looking for a good pair of shit kickers (boots) but to my surprise nothing jumped out and me and said "Buy me!" Maybe I'll just start wearing biker boots again instead ;)
Some of the other stops on the mini-country experience were the lovely ladies belting out tunes in sultry southern drawls. First up was Sienna Black performing at the Southpoint Hotel. I'd never heard of this little vixen up to that point but I was pleasantly surprised when she rocked the mic and the stage with some classics and some originals to boot (no pun intended!) Keep an eye out for her, she's going places!
And finally I got to experience one of Shania Twain's last performances as her tour at Caesar's Palace comes to an end! All I can say is what a great show and what a classy lady! She came into the crowd about 3 or 4 times and took selfie shots with fans at the same time she was singing. Then she dedicated a portion of the show to pull more fans on stage and sit around a makeshift campfire singing together and telling stories. Not once did the show lose any entertainment value. In fact I'd say its one of the best I've seen in Vegas and being a Las Vegas native I've seen them all!
So that was my country experience. All in all not a bad little break from reality! Until the next time I hope everyone has a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!
