On Thursday night Brian and I went to see Kenny Chesney with Miranda Lambert and Lady Antebellum at the Amphitheater. This was my sixth consecutive year of seeing Kenny live, and I believe that it was Brian's fourth. I was raised on country music (like, we went to Opryland and Dollywood one year on vacation) and I've always loved it. It took me some time to get Brian to listen, but he's gradually become a fan. He even listens to it now when he mows the yard (you know, when he's not listening to Rob Zombie. Or John Mellencamp. Or Poison.).

Lady Antebellum was awesome, I really like them a lot. I've never been a fan of Miranda Lambert (although she was an upgrade from the awful LeAnn Rimes last year), so when Lady Antebellum said that they would be signing autographs after she performed, Brian and I went and got in line early so that we could avoid listening to her annoying voice. It was pretty neat to meet the band members and get autographs.

Kenny put on an awesome concert as usual. He has really great songs and he always just throws a great big party. We even stayed until the end this year since I'm not pregnant and trying to beat everyone out of the parking lot like last year. There aren't too many people that I would go see over and over again -like Rascal Flatts - do they make good music anymore? I just feel like they try so hard to put out a new CD every year that they stopped caring about what they put on them. Plus they spend half their time on stage telling stupid jokes. But I will go see Kenny every year he puts on a concert. It's amazing!

That was our first concert this year but we're also planning on seeing Brad Paisley with Dierks Bentley, Def Leppard with Poison (that is so Brian), and Toby Keith. It depends on what we get tickets to. Because Brian advertises with radio stations for work, they usually give him tickets to shows he wants to go to. We just have to see what we get. They usually don't give out tickets for the more popular artists (like Kenny Chesney or Dave Matthews), but they do for others. We might even go to the Rascal Flatts concert so we can see Darius Rucker!

Us on a date :)

All of them. The guy in white is Josh Kelley's brother. That makes him Katherine Heigl's brother in law.

  1. Okay...since we've established that our taste in music is fairly dissimilar, I'll just say 'glad y'all had a good time!' re: the concert.

    But, I have to tell you that I LMAO about the fact that in your first paragraph, you post links to both Rob Zombie and John Mellencamp, but not Poison. Knowning your tendency for attention to the smallest detail, this begs the question: have Bret and CeeCee offended you in some way...? ;)

  2. dierks and his band are soooo awesome live!!!

    they're my favorite by far....hope you have a great time seeing them!!
