cowboy hats and budweiser

we had a fantastic time at the faith hill/tim mcgraw concert saturday night. i bought tickets several months ago, but by then they were almost all sold out. however, i was quite disappointed to discover we were in the VERY LAST row at philips arena. this was our view of the stage:

bummer. that was not going to dampen our enthusiasm, though! now, i am deathly afraid of heights. deathly. so, being all the way up at the top was not so good for me. apparently, many others were scared of being up that high too. two girls were next to us on the left, and one grabbed onto my shoulder when she was walking by us. i didn’t blame her. i would have too. we chatted with them from time to time, especially when we were laughing at the *incredibly* drunk woman right next to me. i lost count of how many beers she had. she was screaming her head off and waving her budweiser bottle in the hair because that’s not redneck at all. she started screaming again at tim mcgraw, and out of nowhere, joe started screaming and throwing his hands up in the air. every time she screamed, he did the same thing. it was hilarious. i think she caught onto it, though, because she asked me if she was bothering us. we were happy about the extra entertainment. 🙂

despite being up so high we got some pretty good pictures. my only disappointment about the concert was that tim mcgraw only did three songs that i knew. i thought he would have done more of his big hits, but he did a lot that i’d never heard of. oh well.

kenny rogers did a song with tim mcgraw also, which was a great surprise.

the concert was about four hours, but i could have stayed all night. it was great. next time, though, we’ll have to remember our cowboy hats.

    Nifty!! For me, the bad part about country concerts was always the very drunk people and screaming girls. They can really ruin a concert for me. But I’m so glad you enjoyed it… those two are very talented.

    I’m glad you had a good time, even though you were in the nose bleed section. I don’t like heights like that at all.

    Nice new layout!

    Sounds like fun! And I’m glad you let Miss Drunky be entertaining instead of annoying.

    sounds like fun times! Me and B did that once – got tix to the Falcons game and we were on the top row of the Dome! I got winded just getting up to our seats!!

    Fun! Fun! I went to see Tim McGraw when Kenny Chesney opened for him. Talk about a great concert. So much fun!
    I hate it too when they don’t sing very much of their old stuff because that’s part of the reason I go. I want to see them sing the songs I have grown to love. Oh well….Glad you had fun!

    I would love! to see Tim in concert. I too have seen Kenny Chesney and Rascal Flatts. That was my all-time favorite country show, I think.

    With his rugged good looks, catchy country tunes and superstar wife Faith Hill, Tim McGraw seems to have it all. After Garth Brooks’ heyday in the industry, Tim McGraw stepped in and has not left the spotlight. He first gained significant notoriety with his lead single, “Indian Outlaw,” from his sophomore album, Not a Moment Too Soon. The ballad eventually reached the Top Ten on the country charts and even placed on the pop charts, becoming an instant crossover hit. After the success of “Indian Outlaw,” it seemed McGraw could not be stopped. *
