Pairs Well With… “Mr. Jones” by Counting Crows
Rolling on only four hours of sleep after a long (and winning) evening of football the night before, I boarded an early ass flight to Denver to see my favorite band: Counting Crows. Choosing between two loves of my life, the Vikings (first home game at the new stadium) and Counting Crows (outdoor concert at Red Rocks) didn’t seem fair and I decided I needed to make both events work, despite how exhausting those 48 hours of fun could be. Somehow, I managed to a) land an entire row to myself on the sold out flight to Denver, sprawl out and nap and b) be recognized as “the girl with the shoe boots on from the Vikings game” the night prior. I guess that’s what happens when your shoe game is on point. Anyway…
Anyone who knows me well knows the passion I have for music. Music is a beautiful artistry that brings people together and creates bonds. Music is able to touch us deeply, help us relate, provide us relief when we’re coping and bring joy into our lives. It is personal and emotional and allows us to create memorable associations that we carry with us for a lifetime.
I have spent a good portion of my career in Entertainment Marketing working with artists whom I admire and hearing their stories of musical influence and performance. It’s been a privilege to work with some of the best in the business. Even more exciting is when you get to see your favorites in their element: on stage.
