Snow, snow, snow...and a show!

We encountered all this snow in the Great Smoky Mountain National Park on our way to Nashville this past Sunday. It was a welcome suprise that made the journey even more worthwhile. We went to Nashville to see Andrew Peterson's annual Christmas concert at the Ryman Auditorium. I guess it's kind of silly to drive 5 hours to see a concert, but it was one of the best - if not the best - concert I've ever been to. Andrew just released a wonderful Christmas album called Behold the Lamb of God: the true tall tale of the coming of the Christ. There was a plethora of guest artists including (but not limited to) Derek Webb (formerly of Caedmon's Call), Sandra McCracken, Andrew Osenga (of Caedmon's Call, formerly of The Normals), Randall Goodgame, Buddy Miller (Julie, his wife, is one of my favorite artists, but was sick and unable to appear), Jill Phillips, Andy Gullahorn, Pierce Pettis, and Phil Keaggy. It was a great way to celebrate the coming of the Christ.
