It's your lucky day because another one of my BFF's is filling in! She's a big haired, hilarious, and so sweet Kentucky girl who I love to pieces and I know you will too. Take it away Brookie!
Hi lovebugs! I'm Brooke and I blog over at Tales from my Fairytales. I'm filling in for Samilicious while she is getting ready to be off enjoying Dallas and Lady Gaga.
Country music is more my jam. But, I'm completely okay with any kind of live music. Even the kind of live music that happens in my car on my drive home every day.
I love a good concert - more than I probably should. I find myself at the local watering hole listening to live music, will shell out the big bucks for a concert, and even tweet at a country star to get tickets to a concert. You've got it - I have no shame.
Do I sometimes check his Twitter to make sure he still follows me? Well, that's not something I'm at liberty to discuss at this very moment. AND....you can insert your judgments somewhere around here.
I like to consider myself a Concert-Going-Expert. Especially a country concert.
A dress, jean jacket, boots, and a little whiskey are things that are on my necessity list for any concert. Or any kind of drink, really, just as long as it's in an adorable flask.
A few tips for you:
1. Make sure your dress is cute. Especially if you are on the front row. I'm sure it could be really bad to be spotted by a cute country singer while looking frumpy, but I don't want to ever find out.
You never know when you might be invited back stage.
2. You have to stand up for most of the concert. Or at least to go with me you do, so make sure that your shoes are comfortable. I've gone out after a good concert with some heels on - and it's been the worst experience of my life.
3. Make sure that the venue sells beer. I don't care what kind they carry, but you need a cold beer to drink and spill while dancing your heart out. And your flask will most likely get empty once you share with everyone that you've made friends with on the front row.
4. Listen to the CD of that artist over and over before the concert. How would you feel if you were up there on stage singing your heart out, and God help us if I was, and you look into the crowd and no one is singing along? This is for the artist, guys.
5. Buy your tickets early, pay the money, get up close and personal with the artists. And if all else fails, tweet them that day and get tickets that way.
Print these off and save them for a rainy-concert-going day. You'll thank me later.
Ya'll are going to want to trust her because I'll let you in on a little secret.. here and Jake Owen are having a secret relationship. They text all day long. Don't tell anyone I told you ;)
Thanks Brookie! Now go visit her right meow.
