Happy Hour with Dean Brody

Our friends, Jane and Joe, live in Nashville and get firsthand scoop of all the gossip in the country music world because their son is a manager for many artists. Turns out, he is managing a new up-and-coming musician named Dean Brody. Joe started bragging about Dean months ago and told us to be on the lookout for him. Dean just released his first CD (guess we don't say album anymore?) which includes his hit single Brothers. Good stuff, if you like country music, which I do.

Jane and Joe got to see Dean perform his debut at the Grand Ole Opry a couple of weeks ago, and last night Neal and I got to see him perform right here in Colorado. One of our local radio stations sponsors a monthly happy hour show with different musicians and this week it was Dean Brody! Not only did we get to hear him perform, but I spotted him in the corner before the show and went up and introduced myself (it helps to have connections!). He graciously posed for a picture with me and Neal. The picture is pretty bad of all three of us, but at least it's proof we were there and when he becomes famous I can say, "I had my picture taken with him!"

Neal and I don't do the bar scene much anymore (we're old, ya know?), so when we do venture out into the world, we like to people watch. I was trying not to be too obvious with my camera aimed at the toothless woman or the guy with so many chains on his pants that he would set off a metal detector...but I just could not resist taking pictures of some butts. I tell you, I don't think I've ever seen so many butts poured into tight jeans...

And for the finale, I leave you with a butt shot of Dean Brody, signing autographs. He was one of the few people there who didn't have painted on blue jeans. Looks like someone else (bottom right) was impressed with the view as well. Not a bad "ending" to an evening, eh?

I thought my blog readers would much rather see butts than the toothless woman!

Yeah, it was a nice time and the best part was it was a FREE event!
