“In all seriousness, that’s way up there,” a smiling Meyer said. “And I don’t get awed by many people. That’s a hell of a deal, man. You guys don’t believe me.”
“We’ve been inviting him for three years,” said Shelley Meyer, Urban’s wife. “Urban’s only birthday wish every year is to see a Jimmy Buffett concert
That’s Shelley, middle, in the below photo. Sadly we haven’t been able to locate video of a drunken Dan Mullen singing Buffett’s version of “Brown Eyed Girl.”
