Kevin Costner & Modern West in Alexandria, Virginia - "They performed a 16-song set of country-tinged originals; each song was preceded by a brief story, delivered with smarm-free charm, and the anecdotes were as valuable to the engaging evening as the music." - The Washington Post

    I should have included Christina in the "forgiven" list on that Grammys debacle last night. Very classy and well-done rendition from "Porgy and Bess" in a tribute to Nina Simone. Pulled off extremely well. Too bad she doesn't go for "classy" instead of "trashy" more often.

    Have a day.
