Elvis and the Sugarcanes

Last night I went to Wolf Trap to see Elvis. He sang songs from his new album and some of his older hits. All the songs (even the old ones) were country/blue grass songs. It is always so interesting to hear his songs sung in a different way. I missed Steve Nieve (piano), but I enjoyed the dobro, fiddle, mandolin, double bass, and accordion. All of the instruments were distinguishable and melded nicely. It was nice not to have any particular one drown out the others.

I Felt the Chill (cowritten with Loretta Lynn) and the country rendition of Alison almost had me in tears. It was a great show (as always), and I can't wait to see him again.
