Yesterday The Man called me from work and said, "Hey, you didn't buy tickets to the Kenny Chesney concert did you?"
Me: "No, was I supposed to?"
The Man: "Well I've been hinting at it for weeks... I just hoped you would."


So, being the amazingly good wife that I am, I got online and scrambled around and managed to get last minute tickets to a sold out concert.

*Uncle Kracker, Billy Currington, and Kenny Chesney*

Professional cameras were not allowed (boooo!) so I swiped The Girl's point and shoot.

Uncle Kracker opened. I really dig his music and have for years.

Billy Currington... I didn't really know who he was.
His first couple songs bored me and I was rolling my eyes, crossing my arms.
Then... Then, he got good!! REALLY good! He totally won me over!
I did end up recognizing a bunch of his songs. He's an amazing performer with this sweet boyish charm... I think I have a new crush.
He was super high energy and all over the stage and our poor little camera couldn't keep up with him very well.

Then it was Kenny's turn. He was about what I expected.
Really good, very talented, very genuine, lots of energy.

My favorite was when the two opening acts came back out and performed with Kenny.

And the Wife of the Year Award goes to........

(I also get the Shiniest Face of the Year Award.)

Have you seen any concerts that you'd recommend?

Journey with the new lead singer.
He sounds just like Steve Perry. Youtube Journey with Arnel P???, I forgot his last name!
I loved their concert.

Now that sounds like an awesome concert! I love me some Kenny! You were so close. Definitely Wife of the Year award! :)

Jessica said...

Looks like you had a blast! My recommendation is Paul Simon, he is great in concert.

Skippin' Rope said...

I would recommend Kenny Chesney! I LOVED seeing him in concert! Funny thing! Uncle Kracker come on stage to sing a few songs with Kenny! {And this was a few years ago!}

I'm glad you guys had such a great time!

Way to go Wife of the Year! Those three came to Houston a few weeks ago and did a free concert downtown in connection with the Final Four Basketball game, but as I get older, uh, er, mature, those FREE Concerts have lost their luster. I saw Tim McGraw at the Rodeo this year and he was awesome and Hot!

Le Anne said...

Oh what an awesome concert! LOVE all three of those cute men! My hubs and I L-O-V-E The Zac Brown Band. Anytime they make it out here to the west coast we find a way to go. IN fact we flew up to San Fransisco JUST to see them in concert! I love that they always have fresh new talent as their opening some good people a start!

Amy said...

Oh honey, that is NOT a shiny face. I can show you some shiny face pictures. Ugh. You look so pretty! :)

How fun! I actually saw Kenny a few years back when he was at the KS Coliseum - I can't for the life of me remember who opened for him though. =/

I was actually at the Garth Brooks/Billy Joel concert in Central Park in 1997. Don McLean came out and did "American Pie" too - it was incredible.

George Strait was a great concert - no smoke & mirrors - just the man and his guitar and his music. Simply incredible!

i had the best time at an audio adrenaline show a few years ago...but i think they quit touring.

Erin Burns said...

Girl. You know what I am going to say!
You love me for it.
(and she really does rock in concert. I can personally attest, like 4 times over. Ahem...moving on.)

But dying to see Kenny! His "Me & You" is what Mateo and danced to at our wedding. Some day!!

Erin Burns said...

For reals tho - Garth was probably the best live performance I've seen. REALLY want tickets to his exclusive shows in Vegas right now!

Nezzy (Cow Patty Surprise) said...

Well if ya'll knew me, you'd know I'm all about the oldies. The world famous Platter's (that's how there announced) show in Branson is pretty hard to beat.

Good to hear ya'll had a blast and a half. You two are just to darn stinkin' cute...what a great picture.

From the happy hills and hollers of the Missouri Ponderosa, ya'll have a wonderfully blessed and beautiful day!!! :o)

Sara said...

I saw Billy Joel and Elton john. Great together and alone...but, my heart Is forever with the BareNaked Ladies.
( but the Glee concert is coming in May!!)

Lisa Holman of XSBaggage and Co. said...

What a super wife you are! The last concert I went to was to see Kenny in Seattle at Qwest Field almost 2 yrs. ago. LOVED IT! It was an 8 hour concert that also included Sugarland, Miranda Lambert and Montgomery Gentry.

Ruth said...

Christina said...

War came to the River Festival a couple of years ago (Wichita) and that was wonderful. I also loved Spyro Gyra. I've seen a lot of bands but would love love to see the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Santana some day. Doubt they will come to Kansas.... :)
