About how this short video is like a small snapshot of her wonderful personality and amazing talent. A video I've been planning on posting for weeks.
And the thing is, having just loved her to death for years, when I was still living and working in the Washington, D,.C. area and finally had the opportunity to see her perform in-person -and wound-up with some really great seats, too- despite everything I'd read and thought I already knew about her, oddly enough, the thing I was most unprepared for is that she's even more drop-dead beautiful in person -heartbreakingly so in fact.
So when she comes bounding out onstage beaming that infectious mega-watt smile of hers that brings the crowd to its feet, then stops smiling and starts singing with that amazing unaffected voice, she literally has the ability to make you (or at least me) feel physically dizzy.
It's just like what I'd seen before for myself when I was around actress Sela Ward.
People are just literally overwhelmed by her in the flesh.
Sometimes, it's hard to believe that it's been so many years since... she first rocked my world.

My record for playing that CD over-and-over without stopping -while driving- is 5x's.
Because I knew in advance that I'd be at the important HB City Commission meeting on the Boardwalk proposal last Wednesday, and knew they'd be appearing and performing at the same time, the last thing I did before I left the house was set up the DVD recorder to tape the 2012 CMT Music Awards.
So it wasn't until early Thursday morning that I saw both Jana Kramer -#8 on the iTunes album chart last week- and Sara perform.
