We are going with friends Deb and Brett.

A few years back on a car trip Cindy played some Sister Hazel and I liked it. I had actually heard some Sister Hazel before from a Jason VanDinter at Marshall Erdman. He liked them and had one tape at his desk. I didn’t give them a chance then, but when I realized that the music Cindy was playing and the band Jason wanted me to listen to were the same I took notice.

Then came a time when I was trying to put together a CD for Cindy as a surprise. I went to Amazon to get a couple of songs and it just so happened that at that time there was a FREE Sister Hazel album for download. It was an 11 song sampler called 11411.

I had it for a little while before I had a chance to listen to it.

It was about this same time that I was thinking about asking Cindy to marry me.

One day on the way home from work with the van windows open I decided to give the Sister Hazel a listen. I played the album off of my phone into the stereo. The songs were great. Then it happened. The song “My Heart” came on when I was just about halfway home. The song changed my life. I listened to it and was blown away, then I started it over again. I had tears in my eyes as I screamed out the lyrics while I played it a second time. It was awesome.

We don’t got tons of money
We ain’t got fancy things
We find our treasure in each other
Lay down beside me, baby
I wanna take your hand
Don’t think I’ll ever let you go

We already know
I’m all out of wait

I’m gonna give you everything
From my heart, my name
You’re gonna give me everything
For my heart, my name

Years now, we’ve been together
Sun or stormy weather, either way
That’s how we’re always gonna be
I kiss your back so softly
Your skin, it tastes so sweet
Don’t think I’ll ever let you go

We already know
I’m all out of wait

I’m gonna give you everything
From my heart, my name
You’re gonna give me everything
For my heart, my name
For my heart, my name

[instrumental]

I’m gonna give you everything
From my heart, my name
You’re gonna give me everything
For my heart, my name
I’m gonna give you everything
From my heart, my name
You’re gonna give me everything
For my heart, my name
For my heart, my name
For my heart, my name

I knew right then after listening to that song that I was ready and couldn’t wait any longer to ask Cindy to marry me. It was a pivotal moment. I started planning that night.

So this is a show that we both know the group, and it has a poignant history for me.
