Over the weekend Curtis and I traveled to Lexington to see George Strait in concert. Curtis is a huge fan and really wanted to attend the concert. Thankfully, with the help of my Mom I was able to surprise him with tickets at Christmas! On our way up to Lexington on I-65, we ended up sitting in stand still traffics for around 3 hours. If you know Curtis and I we are a very inpatient couple. After learning that six people died in two accidents and a couple in critical condition, we were so thankful for God's timing. One of the victims in the accident is Kellie Pickler's drummer, he is still in critical condition.
We thankfully made it to Lexington in enough time to freshen up and head to Rupp arena. If you are not a fan of George Strait, then obviously you're not American. Simple as that. This ole' cowboy is such a stud, and knows it. He has formed and shaped country music for 31 years. So all 22,000 fans in the stadium young and old have loved country music thanks to him. Martina McBride as the opening act and her voice is as incredible as it is on the radio. She is the cutest little thing.
During the concert they also gave a wounded warrior a new home, $500 of groceries from Walmart a month for a year and also a new tv. To day the least, I lost it. The crowd chanting "USA" and seeing this warriors emotions. George Strait also sang all of his oldie but goodie songs, which we loved! Curtis said on numerous occasions how it was the best concert he had attended. Which of course made my night a million times better!
Sadly, I let my camera/phone die before going in. I guess that is what 3 hours of traffic does to me.
