I never got around to writing about my experience at the Lady Antebellum Concert...
Seems like ages ago (only a few months) but I'm getting around to scrappin' about the day and I just wanted to recollect my thoughts.
When I first heard about the concert, I was ecstatic. I love Lady Antebellum. One of the first songs I remember, was their famous, "I Need You Now.." I can remember Izzy singing the lyrics "It's a quarter after one, I'm a little drunk and I need you now .."
Surprisingly, I love a little bit of country music in my playlist. It stems from living in San Antonio for a while and I think that's all they played :) My faves are still, Tim McGraw, a little of Kenny Chesney, a touch of good ol' Dixie Chicks, of course you gotta have Reba in there. Some Rascal Flatts, Trace Adkins, oooh Alan Jackson, Garth Brooks.. Oh Shania.. man I could go on and on.
Lady Antebellum was for me a country with a touch of pop. And I loved that.
I didn't buy their tickets right away.. (After that concert, I wish I did). But mainly because my hubby was due to be out of town and being new here, I really didn't know who would go crazy over them like me. Or wouldn't think I was crazy when they came out on stage. So I bought 2 tickets anyway, knowing I would go.. just not sure with who. It turned out that hubby didn't have to TDY just yet and he was my official date for the night! And OH WHAT A NIGHT IT WAS.
Before I go into how amazing the concert was.
I do want to share the minor "obsessive" side that I have with music.
So .. my husband, who maybe knew 1 or 2 songs from them.. had to go thru a "Lady Antebellum" Crash Course. That's right you read that right.
So I purchased their very first album and their latest. (The thing with iTunes, it gives you the ability to just buy a little here and there..) And that was the only thing playing in the house, the car, outside, at night while we were asleep.. I kid you not. I drilled each melody into his head (and mine) till we were humming them subconsciously. And that was how we prepped for this "glorious" night of good music.
The actual concert, bear with me, I haven't been to one in ages. (Alright, the last time I went to one was when The New Kids On The Block was here when I was like 10.. ha ha ha, are you done laughing now.. I swear, I thought I was gonna be Mrs. Jordan Knight)
But the concert was amazing.
I was going absolutely crazy and even lost my voice singing (yelling) every song they performed.
(Evidence below, warning.. turn your volume down, no infact, turn it off!)
I loved ALL the song choice they picked to perform, a little from each album, and quite a bit from their first album which was AWESOME!
One of my all time favorites, well there are SO MANY, "American Honey" And Hilary gave me goosebumps!
All in all that concert was amazing, love my hubby for tagging along and probably developed some sort of hearing loss from that night, but I wouldn't have it any other way.
Till the next concert (cross my fingers, Mumford & Sons)
Embrace music, crank up that volume, and sing your heart out!!!
