Who’s Gonna Fill Their Shoes?

Part of our fun last week included an evening of music.  Hubby surprised me with tickets to see Little Big Town.  It was a sold out show, our seats rocked, and they did not disappoint!  The most moving moment of the concert for me was when the lights dropped, and with a cappella voices, the group began to sing “Who’s Gonna Fill Their Shoes”. The crowd was reverently quiet at first, then we all joined in singing this tribute to George Jones.    Who is gonna fill his shoes?

We left the concert and stopped in at Toby Keith’s for a bit of nourishment. There was a young man singing on their small stage and we had the opportunity to visit with him between sets. Jason Young was from my hubby’s home town and had personality deluxe. His music was spirited with a strong message and super voice. Who’s gonna fill their shoes?

On our way out of the building, we were pleased to see that our local lineman, Thomas Martinez, drew a large crowd as he performed on high stage.  Who’s gonna fill their shoes?

On our drive home, we reflected on our music filled evening.  And as the song continued to play in my mind, I came to the conclusion that shoes may not be meant to be filled by another.   But rather to just walk closely next to….while remembering~

Have a wonderful weekend, friends.  Be good to each other ♥
