REVIEW: Pam Tillis and Lorrie Morgan at the Eisemann Center Saturday night

Although I was unable to go, my colleague Chance bravely stepped in to cover the big country concert over the weekend. Actually, he was quite willing to catch Pam Tillis and Lorrie Morgan as they brought their Grits and Glamour Tour to north Texas on Saturday. Performing at the Eisemann in Richardson, Chance trekked up north to get in on some hoedown action.

Read his take after the jump.

Pam Tillis and Lorrie Morgan tonight at the Eisemann

Country divas live

We’re trying to figure out  if we even deserve a night of such fabulosity. Lorrie Morgan, pictured, comes to town with her sass and glam country that paved the way for the likes of Faith Hill and Carrie Underwood. Pam Tillis was a pioneer in country music as one of the first female producers of her own work. They bring us the Grits and Glamour tour and we’re thanking the country music gods.

DEETS: Eisemann Center, 2351 Performance Drive, Richardson. 8 p.m. $44–$62. EisemannCenter.com.

Know when to hold ‘em
Poker tourney host Pocket Rockets celebrates one year with its Gala Event and Awards honoring the year’s top players. But don’t think this means no playing time. Right after the awards, they turn around to start a $500 tournament sponsored by AIDS Interfaith Network. Rumor has it that some of the A-List cast will be there.

GIVEAWAY: Tickets to Pam Tillis and Lorrie Morgan at the Eisemann this Saturday

It’s a double header on Saturday when country music titans Pam Tillis and Lorrie Morgan come to town — in one show. That’s pretty major and the folks at the Eisemann were kind enough to offer us three pairs of tickets to giveaway to some of you die hard country fans. The Grits and Glamour Tour comes to North Texas and you just might get to go.

What do you have to do? Not too much. Just answer this trivia question which should be pretty easy. What’s the No. 1 hit Morgan sang that Tillis also recorded?

Got it? Good. Now just email me here with your answer and full name and “Gimme some grits” in the subject line. I’ll randomly pick three winners (with the right answer) tomorrow at 3 p.m. Winners will then receive deets on how to get their tickets.

Good luck!
