In May, Steven Curtis Chapman launched his summer tour right here in West Georgia at the new Mill Town Music Hall. Since he is one of my favorite artists I bought tickets and went to the show.
For those of you who have not been to this venue yet, you should definitely plan on going. I loved the fact that it was only about 20 minutes from the time I left my home in western Douglas County until the time that I arrived, and there was no traffic to battle, since it is in Bremen, just off Exit 11. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The sound was great. Because it is not a huge concert hall, every seat is a good one. But the thing that stood out most to me was how far apart the rows are from each other. I could literally stretch my legs straight out in front of me and barely touch the row ahead of me. When someone had to get by me, I didn’t even have to stand up, and they could walk by me without turning sideways. When the concert was over, I was out of the door, in my car, and on I-20 in about 5 minutes, and we didn’t leave early.
There are a number of good concerts coming up, including the Oak Ridge Boys in August. You can find the schedule and buy tickets at www.milltownmusichall.com.
