In dear old sunny Florida, the land of showers,
"Twas there I met her, sitting 'mong the flowers,
Among the orange blossoms I long to roam,
In dear old sunny Florida, my Southern home.

....tonight, it was as if Taylor was making love to the entire audience, and when it was over, we all needed that afterglow cigarette! The show was wonderful, that’s the best I can say. Was it the best I had ever seen? I can’t say for sure. But the energy and vibe was definitely different. Taylor Hicks seemed like a man who was exactly where he wanted to be with his career, doing exactly what he wanted to be doing. He appeared happy and that happiness transcended into the energy of the show. I don’t know what was going on inside his head, but whatever it was, I hope it sticks around and I get to see another show like I just saw, and feel what I just felt.

It was a hot summer night in Florida and it had nothing to do with the weather. Taylor came out and gave us one of his best that night. Taylor's tags are now legendary and he did not disappoint us that night. He was on fire!
