The Country Music Concert Experience

Saturday night, Hubby and I got to act like actual grownups attend a musical concert together for the first time in well....forever.  I think our last concert (together anyway) was pre-kids.  Steely Dan.  Whom Hubby hates.  So he pouted like a baby (while proceeding to drink his face off) throughout the entire event.

So back to the concert on Saturday.  No, we didn't see Aerosmith at Fenway Park that night.

We saw the Zac Brown Band.

C'mon, you don't know "Chicken Fried"?!

Certainly not my first choice for a musical event, but they (and certainly the mostly drunk twentysomething crowd) were entertaining nonetheless.

And when you go with a friend who has the type of personality to make friends with EVERYONE around her?

You will find yourself taking pictures of her wearing a huDge Zac Brown head:
And you will find yourself not wayyyyy back on the lawn where you have (cheap) tickets, but instead in the last row of the seated section because she's made friends with the ticket-taker.  (Yes, our view still stunk, but who the frig wants to pay those ridiculous ticket prices?  Not I.)

And when the band plays songs from their new album that doesn't come out for ANOTHER MONTH?

You will pass the time by taking inordinate amounts of (stupid) pictures of yourself and your husband while you wait for a song that you actually recognize.

But best of all?

You will realize that your husband looks mighty damn fine in a cowboy hat.


So what's the last concert you attended?

Ah, pre-kids. Those were the days, huh? We still try to catch a couple of concerts a year, but we're not night owls like we used to be. Going to see Mary Chapin Carpenter Thursday night. SITS sent me by, and I'm glad they did!

I have to agree that your hubby does look handsome! I am not much of one for cowboy anything, but he pulls it off!

My last concert? New Kids On The Block (NKOTB). Last summer. :)

Last one we went to...I think it was Kenny Chesney last summer. Great concert.

Looks like you had fun!

We saw Brooks and Dunn.....forever ago. We had front row VIP tickets and it was stinkin awesome. (we didn't have to pay for them, we won them)

I hadn't been to a concert in YEARS. Way too long. This summer I took my daughter to see Taylor Swift. We were on a roll, so I went to Bon Jovi with my husband :) And then right after my SIL scored free tickets and took us to see American Idol.
Good times. I love concerts and vow to start going again.

I have no clue who that is, how did they get so many fans?
I also have no idea what my last concert was, I'm pretty sure my age started with a different number, but the last good concert was Arcade Fire, the current hottest rage. They're ok recorded and amazing live (check out John Stewart from last week for a tame sample). Are you sure hubby's bro isn't adopted?
