I'll Fly Away

I arrived in Nashville on Wednesday.  I'm here for work/school (to present at a conference), but I'm squeezing in plenty of fun too.

Tonight, I took the historical trip to the Grand Ole' Opry.  Honestly, I hadn't plan to go, but once I saw that Pam Tillis and the Charlie Daniels Band were scheduled...I was definitely going.

After a standing ovation for the Devil Went Down to Georgia, Charlie Daniels sang I'll Fly Away.  This was my grandfather's favorite song, and not a time goes by that I don't think of him when I hear it.  Well, tonight was no different.  I sat in the crowded audience, eyes closed, and tears rolling down my face. 

Such a special night.
