Disclosure: I received something of value from Motor City Casino. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. Full policy here
I always have been a Chris Isaak fan. I love his voice, it reminds me of a younger more hip Roy Orbison mixed with a twinge of Elvis. His music takes me to a warm tropical climate, far away from cold Michigan.

When I was 21 years old, I had the best job that I've ever had. Did it pay well? No, but it was so much fun. I couldn't wait to go to work, when I wasn't working I often made time to visit. So, now that I have you in suspense you're wondering where did you possibly work were you loved going to work and were happy with crap pay. I worked at Blockbuster Music, for 5 years. Basically, from the beginning of college to the end.

What could this possibly have to do with Chris Isaak? Well, I'm going to tell you. I entered a contest one day on how I could improve the store. I was one of the winners. I was flown with two co-workers to Nashville, Tennessee. The first night there we were taken to a very small bar, where Chris Isaak played for us. I had never been to a concert that had very few people and a star was standing directly in front of me. He was amazing.

After the concert, I received a CD, Chris signed it for me. I was so nervous, which I'm sure he knew. He proceeded to grab a piece of paper and draw me a picture. I still have it somewhere. I wish I knew where it was so I can include it. He drew a cartoon character of himself, surfing.

As the years went on, I ended up getting my husband on board with my love for Chris Isaak. He would play every summer at a local venue and we would go. I even had Wicked Games played as my wedding song. Yes, totally inappropriate.

Almost 20 years later, I still love listening to his tunes. His music still takes me away to that happy place. I can honestly say that he is my favorite artist.
