Yes, I am still reeling from the show, as it were. I haven't been able to really put these experiences to words as well as you did for the Atlanta show, but maybe this weekend, I'll find a spare moment to really committ this experience to the blog.

did you check out "You Can Never Hold Back Spring" ?

I did check out "You Can Never Hold Back Spring" (and I'm listening to it again)! It's wonderful.

So, which show was better - Atlanta or Asheville?
