Got to see Holly Dunn in concert along with Charlie Daniels and Ronnie Milsap, in the early 90s.
Daddys Hands was probably her biggest hit.

Beautiful woman.

Sharon Jones (1956-2016)

Jones experienced breakthrough success relatively late in life, releasing her first record when she was 40 years old. In 2014, at age 58, Jones was nominated for her first Grammy, in the category Best R&B Album, for Give the People What They Want.

A medical evacuation plane operated by American Medflight , the company that provides medevac service from the playa during the event, crashed in Elko, Nevada Friday night. Killed were pilot Yuji Irie; medical staff members Jake Sheppard of Utah and Tiffany Urresti of Elko; and patient Edward Clohesey.

I'm sure at least one of the crew members worked the Burning Man event this year.

R.I.P. to all.

A tragic loss of life indeed. And to think that me, others on here, and friends could end up at a party of this very nature on any given weekend...wow. Sad, really hits home
