A Fun Evening in Kentucky


The Kentucky Music Hall of Fame held an induction ceremony last night at the Bluegrass Ballroom at the Lexington Center. Nearly 800 people trekked through freezing rain and sleet to attend the gala event, which included a fund raising silent auction, dinner, induction ceremony and performance. The 2008 inductees included Les McCann, jazz artist, Norro Wilson, songwriter and producer, Florence Henderson, TV and stage entertainer, Crystal Gayle, crossover singer and Dwight Yoakam, singer, songwriter and actor. Other KY performers included Dale Ann Bradely, the current IBMA (bluegrass music) female vocalist of the year, Sam Bush, John Michael Montgomery, Jerry Chesnut and Loretta Lynn. This was the 4th induction ceremony for the Kentucky Music Hall of Fame since 2002 honoring Kentucky musical achievers. The Hall of Fame and Museum is located at Renfro Valley, just off 1-75 in south central KY. Go to http://www.kymusichalloffame.com/
I was invited to attend by my friend Mary along with five of her special friends. We met for lunch at Lexington's Flag Fork Farm just as the ice storm began. We chatted and became acquainted over lunch and dessert. Note: My dessert choice was their homemade Lemon Geranium pound cake accompanied by English Breakfast tea. After lunch we carefully made our way into downtown and checked into the hotel for a fun-filled special afternoon. We changed into our glitzy attire and enjoyed a nice dinner and an evening of entertainment. What a fabulous girl's night out!

My folks made it down to Refro Valley last fall and enjoyed that area very much.

Sounds like you had a nice time despite the weather!
