This past week-end was pretty wonderful

it was one that I have been looking forward to
for about 2 months

as one of my favorite bands ever
was coming to town
and this time I was getting a chance to go!

Blue Rodeo has been here
many times before
but I have never had the opportunity
to go until this time...

I have loved this band for long time

They are a Canadian country rock band
and the first time I heard them
I fell in love

that was back in 1987 and their song "Try"

Jim Cuddy is my absolute favorite
he is an all around nice guy
he really is

he shares lead vocals with
bandmate Greg Keelor

I have way too many favorites to choose just one
and although they played quite a few
off their new album
they pleased the crowd with old favorites too

Rain Down on Me

Give them a listen
and let me know what you think

don't worry about hurting my feelings
if you don't like them
because I am in love with Jim
and I won't be swayed.

Dear Lori,
I'm not usually a country music fan but, I have been and listened to Blue Rodeo and really like them. They are not Grand Old Oprey type country, are they ? They are much softer..... and I can see why you like Jim, you naughty girl !!
I bet you were so excited when you saw them live. I just hope that you didn't throw your knickers on the stage !!!! hahahah XXXX

LOVE Blue Rodeo! They come to Toronto quite regularly, and I manage to miss them every time! I've always liked them. Down to earth bunch of guys.
(Must be a Canadian thing eh?) lol

Hey girl I've never heard of them before. They are kinda cute;) I could only listen to part of that song and then it froze on me. I like it though.
