Tonight was a wonderful night. It started with a quick interview with Tim Hicks at The CNE. If you’re wondering… yeah he’s really that guy. Sweet, funny, sincere, grateful, oh, and don’t let me forget talented. Did I mention very humble and gracious. He also did a great job of ignoring me while I shot him and paid attention to the questions Joshua asked him. Tim’s got a new album out, 5:01 – go check it out!
Are you wondering what Tim’s thinking? You can find out if you click on thereviewsarein.com link. The full interview – questions and answers. There are some really good ones including who he thinks might win the CCMA Best Female Artist Award.
Because of our interview with Tim we had no time to shoot The Abrams Brothers. I could hear them and I did manage to catch a shot from the crowd before they left the stage.
Next up was Kira Isabella. I was stoked that she was part of the bill. She was the one act last year at Boots and Hearts that I was kicking myself over having missed. I just couldn’t do it. It was one of those moments where I just felt like I couldn’t make it there in time and I was tired and needed a rest. Boots and Hearts is great but its a long, exhausting weekend. Fun but don’t forget… it’s work for us. She played all of my favourite songs and I was singing along just like the rest of the crowd. She looked beautiful and sang like an angel.
And then there was Tim. He hit the stage with his usual energy. There was running and jumping. He got us all up on our feet with our hands in the air. He sang all of my favourites including the songs from the new album. There was crazy white smoke and before it was over there was confetti everywhere. It was spectacular and I had a wonderful, wonderful time.
