Um, yep... thats me with Brad Paisley and I am soooo ok with it!
Last week I had won tickets to his show, along with meet and greet passes from a contest on facebook. I debating going, knowing that I could sell the tickets and the passes and not have to worry about the rest of this months bills. However, between my mom, Kristen (whose in the picture with me) and my husband, they pretty much refused to let me "not go". They all said I needed a night out after having Emmalee and since Dave volunteered to stay home with her, I was able to take one of my friends and relax. I drove up and Kristen took care of parking and drinks for the night so we had a girls night that I didnt stress out about.
We go there around 5 because the woman in customer service told me that the meet and greets happen between 5-6 if its a 7 oclock show. Um nope, Brad Paisley's meet and greet was AFTER the show! Since we had time to kill we went exploring, looking at all the food stands and the tour merchandise. As Kristen was purchasing her shirt, I overheard the Country 102.5 booth that was next to the merch say theyd be interviewing Jerrod Neimann shortly so I plopped myself directly in front of he table and called Kristen over. Sure enough, 10 minutes later, there he was!!!
Oh and for those of you who dont know him...
We were already fraked out about meeting him and knowing we'd be meeting Brad Paisley later was amazing! The concert was Jerrod Neimann, Blake Shelton & Brad Paisley, seriously dreamy. We had a blast. We danced, sang, screamed... it was so much fun!
So our seats were directly behind the sound tech guys and we notice them moving stuff, first a microphone, then a guitar so I watched the guy to see where he went. He was at the end of our row with a ton of security ad I strated to freak out... Brad was going to be coming up here for a 2nd stage!! We were extremely lucky and there were about 15 open seats, with only 4 or 5 people at the very end of the row so we scooted right down and were only about 3 people away from the second stage. sure enough two songs later, Brad was walking up to this little boat dock stage!!
