Summer in the South means a lot of things, but one in particular, concerts.
These aren’t just any concerts, they are the amphitheater, sweat your tail off in the 104 degree plus 90% humidity, country concerts. The one thing I always make sure to do when preparing for these events is choosing clothes that don’t show sweat. Hint: wear patterns. Within 5 minutes all your make-up will be melted off, your hair will be flat, and you’ll have a serious case of swamp ass. (The most endearing of all terms for butt sweat.)
This summer I went all red neck and attended Blake Shelton with Easton Corbin & Janet Kramer, AND then Miranda Lambert with Dierks Bentley. Oh lawd y’all, Blake Shelton was one of the, if not the best, concert I have ever been to, and I have been to a WHOLE lot.
iPhone pictures aren’t as good as DSLR pictures would have been, but I have gotten tired in my old age of figuring out ways to sneak in my Canon. If you ever get the chance to go see Blake Shelton, DO IT! You won’t regret it! He played Footloose and my 80′s movie loving self about lost my mind. I love Kevin Bacon.
Dierks Bentley is mighty fine, and we just so happened to have AMAZING SEATS. The morning after seeing Blake, we woke up and ordered Miranda Lambert tickets. It didn’t hurt our decision that Dierks was opening her show. The first time I saw Dierks was 10 years ago when he opened for Rascal Flatts with Keith Urban, and he wasn’t a spot on the map. He still looks just as good.
And he loves the USA. Be still my country beating heart.
Then Miranda Lambert came out and totally rocked! I just really need her to be my BFF. Seriously though, I need her to be my best friend. With my in real life BFF’s and my imaginary BFF’s Jennifer Lawrence and Miranda Lambert… I would have the most epic friend group of all time. We could totes reminisce about our favie Lisa Frank patterns from elementary school.
Well, I don’t really have much to say after showing you my amazing concert experiences. Both shows were unbelievable and I loved every second of each. If you ever get the chance to see either, you MUST go. Your life will forever be changed and you will stop being a loser.
Today is my first day as the Associate Aquatics Director, and I am spending the entire day gutting the office and doing a little rearranging.
