the BamaJam

there's nothing like the BamaJam (enterprise, alabama) -- which is part rock concert, part country hoedown (sp?), and all about southern hospitality. ..the headliners (on saturday) were brooks & dunn and kid rock, who pretty-much stole the show at 11pm.

    sidenote: i'd almost forgotten how easy-going and friendly that people can be in the florabamageorgia area.

    the estimated attendance was 120,000 (most of whom were drinking beer all day long), and the smiles outnumbered the "issues" 1000 to 1.
