There must have been 3,000 people at the after party. The Roots played. Afterwards, a loud thumping boom-boom music ensued that was too loud for conversation. Numerous food stations were scattered throughout the convention hall. Each set had an Asian food bar, a shrimp and salad bar, and desert bar. We ended up at a table with Dailey and Vincent, who were nominated for Best Country Performance by a Duo or Group. We moved over to the Jazz bar, which was much more listenable both in music selection and volume. But we were all exhausted. So we got in the line to leave.
